BLUNTmoms is blog that creates a safe haven for moms to share their personal stories about being a mom in this modern age. These personal stories range from humorous tales about their husbands to serious introspective write-ups about their lives. Regardless of the story, it provides a platform for moms to connect with one another on the experiences of motherhood. Recently, BLUNTmoms engaged in the use of IdeaPress to create a Windows 8 application for their WordPress blog to provide another medium for moms to connect with one another. We had the chance to speak with Christine Nielsen, blog coordinator of BLUNTmoms, to get an understanding of her experiences using our IdeaPress system.
Having a strong technical background, Christine found the process of creating an app quite straightforward as the progression of steps were easy to follow and well explained . This was especially facilitated by the presence of a real time preview of what the app would look like while it was being built. She is looking forward to the addition of a video tutorial of the app creation process in addition to a live chat system that could help individuals who are not as tech-savvy. She also gave us some great recommendations on how to improve the creation process such as providing more information on the store review process, available analytics and advice for better app promotion on the Windows Store. We’re looking forward to implementing these changes in the near future!
Christine perceives that having blogs in app format is where the industry is heading and creating a Windows 8 App is in line with that trend. She looks forward to doing the same for both iOS and Android platforms as she thinks it will generate more views.
