Friday Freebie: Create Your Own Apps with Yapp!

To me, having an "app" for your special event or conference or classroom takes your work to a whole new level. People love to download apps and, with an app, information is right at your fingertips. But, how many of us know how to create our own app? And, if we can create it, how do we get it "published" so others can download and use it? Well, if you want to create a simple, yet effective app, Yapp is the answer for you.

Yapp (found at is actually an app in itself. Users download the Yapp app from the Apple or Android store. Then, after you've created your "Yapp" you give your audience a code to enter into the Yapp app and your Yapp app shows up their Yapp library.

So, what can you add to your Yapp? With a FREE account you can add an information page (text), a photo gallery, a news feed (that allows users to post comments and photos to each other), a "people" page (great for highlighting presenters or sponsors), an interactive poll, a schedule of events, a twitter feed, a link to tickets (if you use EventBrite), and a videos page! That is a lot for a FREE app.

The process is so simple and anytime you update your Yapp app, your users get a push notification to update their downloaded version. You can use this for your classroom, your local conference, sporting tournaments, weddings, and more! The possibilities are endless. (Oh, and so are the downloads. There is no limit on how many people can download your app.)

So, create a Yapp app for your next big event!
