An all-in-one mobile app widget package. That's what POWr Widgets have to offer.
The recent partnership between iBuildApp and POWr Widgets is titillating to us nerds, but the true winners are those who don't have much technological experience.
Building a mobile app used to take lots of time and money, and it still does if you hire a developer to build from scratch for some reason. OSX Daily estimates that a "small" app takes from $3,000 to $8,000 dollars to develop; compared to what iBuildApp provides. Which is, hmm...free.
We've worked hard at iBuildApp to get your business setup with an app within just a few minutes. Now all you have to do is grab a mobile app template and make a few changes.
Now, the bar has been raised with a full widget suite from POWr Widgets, including items such as sliders, stunning forms and timers.
With dozens of widgets in one place, where do you begin? Right here, of course! We put together a list of POWr widgets offered through iBuildApp, so you can see how each one works into your business app.
Event Slider from POWr Widgets
The event slider lets you feature multiple events with images, buttons and text. Let's say you plan on holding a concert for your band or a conference for your software users. This shows people where to buy tickets or to reserve a spot. When they're on this page it slides through the various events you have coming up.
Multi Slider from POWr Widgets
The multi slider combines both images and videos so that you can feature a tutorial for your gardening website along with images of the finished product. Upload your images and videos and watch them rotate in your mobile app.
Image Slider from POWr Widgets
The image slider is just what it seems to be, so you can upload your images and the widget automatically resizes them to fit nicely in your app.

Whew! That's quite a bit of awesome stuff to wrap your head around. The coolest thing is you don't have to jump around the entire iBuildApp interface to implement it all. Just go to the Manage Content tab while editing one of your apps and click on Change Feature.
