Apptizer Apps

The purpose of this document is to show you how to create an app using Apptizer; no technical knowledge, no coding needed.

Before you begin to create your first application with Apptizer, you need to be registered as a merchant.

You WILL need to have a few files ready to choose as you use the app wizard:

  • A background image – this will be the background of the ”Start page” of the app. As shown in Figure 1.1, on the wizard, it is the image of a bowl of strawberries and a croissant on a plate. This will be replaced by the image you choose.
  • Your brand logo – the image that you use to identify your business.
  • The application icon – an image that reflects the type of business – for example, you could use a cup for a cafe or tea house, utensils for a restaurant, etc.

Step 1

Visit www.apptizer.io on your browser to begin creating your app.

Once you visit www.apptizer.io and choose the “Sign-In” option from the top right corner you will be directed to a page where you can select the wizards available for different businesses as shown in Figure 1.0. Move the cursor over the wizard relevant to you and click on it.

Go To Apptizer Web

Figure 1.0

The first screen you’ll see (Figure 1.1) asks for some basic details for your app such as what you’d like to name it, a short description and the location. Just place your cursor in each field and begin typing. As you enter the& information you will see it appear on the mobile device image on the right.

Select app brand color

Step 2 lets you brand your app by allowing you to choose your color and background image, and upload your logo and an application icon.

The first field asks you to choose a theme color for your store. Click in the color block field and you will see a color palette appear. Choose your color from the palette. You can move your cursor in and around the field until you get the exact color you want.

Continue to the second field, where you will add your logo. Click on the “Choose File” button and a list of the files on your computer will drop down. Navigate to the file that is your chosen logo, highlight it and click ”Choose” as shown in Figure 1.3

Select app logo and background

The final field in Step 2 asks you to upload your application icon. Click on the “Choose File” button and navigate to the file that is your chosen application icon.

If any of the fields above have not been filled out correctly, you will get an error message as illustrated in Figure 1.4
