St. Louis startup turns your website into an app in a snap

Jun 9, 2015

St. Louis startup turns your website into an app in a snap Jun 9, 2015, 9:14am CDT Updated Jun 9, 2015, 9:27am CDT //= $authorImg ?> Enlarge John Abkemeier, co-founder of Appnotch If you’re one of those people who, because you possess a bit of technical acumen, has been pressed into service creating or maintaining the website of a small business, your kids’ little league team or girl scout troop, you perhaps have been approached about the idea of taking the bold step of converting that website into a mobile app. But the cost of adapting websites for use by mobile devices, for many particularly small organizations, is cost prohibitive. Enter St. Louis startup company Appnotch with a solution: a promise to convert your website to a mobile app with the click of a button. “If you have a website you like, you can now get a mobile app by simply taking your site’s web address, going to our site, selecting a name for the app, placing the URL in and pressing ‘enter,’” said Appnotch co-founder John Abkemeier . Bizspace Spotlight See All Bizspace Properties Within minutes, customers are presented with an app that can be published in Google Play and iTunes stores. Customers then have the option to easily tweak the app — tinker with colors and fonts or create links to menus, specials, videos, pictures or forms for business reviews. Appnotch charges a one-time fee of $249 for the conversion, plus a $20 per month ongoing fee for unlimited push notifications and unlimited updates. Abkemeier said the company’s roots grew amid conditions that co-founder Laxman Sankaran observed in the app development market. “On the one hand we were seeing this tremendous growth in app use,” Abkemeier said. “Last year, the amount of time people spent on a mobile device exceeded the time spent on desktops for the first time, which is incredible because mobile has really only been in existence for five years or so. This year there are expected to be 200 billion downloads of apps to phones worldwide.” At the same time, Abkemeier said a lack of developers to convert websites to mobile apps meant, “the average Joe, or the small to medium business, church or school just doesn’t have the opportunity to create a mobile app due to cost. The cost historically has been upwards of $30,000 for an average app. That’s not affordable and not effective for most organizations and small businesses.” Appnotch was founded in 2012 and is headquartered in the Westport-area of St. Louis and got a boost in February when it received $100,000 in seed money and services from Capital Innovators, the St. Louis-based organization that provides funding to startups in exchange for a small equity stake in the company. There is a patent pending on the Appnotch conversion technology, with Abkemeier adding that several other venture capital groups have expressed interest. Appnotch officially launched on May 15 and Abkemeier said the company already is receiving interest from large do-it-yourself website builders, website hosting companies and website design firms interested in becoming mobile app developers by using Appnotch.
