My review on Webmobi app builder
Even if WebMobi has no limit in terms of functionality and content, its design customization tool is by cons pretty limited to meet all need unless the user knows to code and can write his own style.
: Integrated custom module builder, Easy, code level customization, Many ready made modules, Beautifully designed templates, Can also generate mobisite, m-commerce feature, Many pre-set colors.
: Limited design customizability, Few templates.
A Webmobi based app is made of some pages linked together and each page is generated by a specific webmobi’s module.

Modules can have various functions (i.e. 1 page = 1 module). Some modules are for example used as an RSS aggregator on the app, while others are served to embed text and html. Any page of the mobile app is reachable from the app landing page via the landing page navigation menu, and from any other page via a common navigation tab.
The back-end control panel of Webmobi is made of two sections: A library panel that contains all available modules for creating an app and an emulator for the preview.
You can create your mobile app from ready made templates relevant to your area of activity. If you like, you can also personalize everything and start from the scratch. Let’s say you create your app from the scratch:
As starting point you need to choose, in the order of appearance, all features you want to include in your app by selecting some modules from the library.
The platform then automatically generates all the pages of your mobile app according to your chosen modules and creates the landing page’s menu accordingly.
When the core of your app is ready, you can personalize its contents by providing all texts and images required by each module via the corresponding customization forms. If you like, you can as well build your own modules in order to get custom features.
