    I am thinking about having an iOS iPhone, iPad, and Android app for my community. I have had some requests from users because they think it will be easier to talk to the other members, ask questions and view various content I create.

    Does anyone have their own iOS and Android app for their community?

    Theres lots of already made software (tapatalk for example) or forums that have their own setup (XDA), you should test them out to see if what you want already has a solution so you don't reinvent the wheel, or if not it should give you examples of features you want in your app.

    Depending on what your sites purpose is (forum, commercial sales, social networking, etc) you may be able to get away with a well programmed mobile site instead of needing to make apps for multiple platforms, that require updates, etc. My opinion is test a few out, and make an informed decision if you really need/want to invest the time and energy in maintaining apps versus just a well programmed (and easier updated) mobile version of your site

    I had several points which are important to me.

    1 - First I needed my own app with real time chat and private messaging including the ability to send push notifications that can be downloaded from the app stores by my users and seen in mobile (all versions) so I narrowed down the search for chat room app solutions..

    2 - I needed a design to include my images, I needed my background to be black or transparent and completely white label with my logo.

    3 - I do not like to install the chat in my server as this is high cpu and resource consumer. So I need a complete cloud chat service.

    4 - Lastly, I needed the ability to add youtube videos, have users private message me, and have my own app account system.

    I have checked several app builders and only 1 met my needs, Chatwing.

    I choose Chatwing finally as it has real time messaging built in and can be custom branded as my own app plus can be integrated into my web page.

    just tested the chatwing app builder and can confirm the app wizard available makes it straightforward to create an app. nice feature, the app supports Google admob ads so you can display banner ads and make money.
