AppPresser is the first native mobile app development framework for WordPress.
AppPresser allows you to use a WordPress site as an app, including access to device features such as the camera, contacts, and more. You can create your app completely in WordPress, using themes, plugins, and all the stuff you already know.
Developers can use this plugin to make custom apps, or custom extensions for AppPresser. If you are not a developer, please see our website for more information about creating an app with WordPress.
This plugin is not an app-creator in itself, it serves as the core for all app development with AppPresser.
Note: This repository is for code contributors. To use this plugin on your website, please download here: http://wordpress.org/plugins/apppresser/
After cloning this repository, please change the folder name from "AppPresser" to "apppresser" to fix dependency errors.
