Beginning the ProcessYou can choose to sign up for you account now, or after selecting your template described below. Let's begin.
Starting at the ShoutEm homepage, you're given the option to Create Your App Now or watch our introductory video.
After you click on the create your app button, You can utilize our app templates. Templates such as Music, Local and Businesses help you create your new app with the best features in mind. For this tutorial we'll select "Start With Blank App".
The Builder / TabsThis brings you to the ShoutEm app builder, which is where you'll find the tools, features and publishing elements that will help bring your app to completion. These elements are separated into tabs by the role they play in building your app, as you'll see here:
Design - Tablet - Similarly to the tab above, here you can modify your design elements for a tablet app.
Content - This is where you enable and work with the various content modules (ex: News, Photos, Video), by adding or creating content based on the purpose of the feature.
Settings - Here you can set various settings for your app. From 3rd party service integrations to publishing info, this module will provide further modification of your app.
Engage - Use this module to engage your app community. Track user activity, modify user accounts or send push notifications.
Some features are not available in the Live preview as they require some functionality that is only present on mobile devices. These are: QR code reader, camera upload, radio streaming.
To see your app in a dynamic testing situation directly on your device, we provide our Mobilizer 4 app for iPhone and Mobilizer for Android devices, which is an testing platform that allows you to see changes in real-time.
Content ModulesContent features are what drive your app and makes it a full and unique experience for your user. Content can be anything from traditional text-based (ex: News) or rich media (ex: Photos, Videos), to functions that help guide your user in their daily lives or make it easier to connect with what you're promoting (ex: Events, Places, Social Network).
