The easiest way to build Magento mobile store app, check now!
“Time is money”- is an undeniable statement which anyone especially business people has to bear in mind in this fast-growing mobile commerce era. Therefore, their demand for a building a mobile app for their e-stores is quite reasonable. However, things never come as easily as they wish. The problem of app building time arouse like an aching wound embarrassing them all the time. How to tackle this problem? This question is quite hard to find the answer.
18 weeks for an app to be built!
It’s not a joke but a sad truth proved by Kinvey.com after they carried out a research into app development. 18 weeks is the average time for an iOS or Android app to be developed from building backend to frontend. In detail, backend needs 10 weeks to be completed from data storage to versioning process while the entire frontend building requires at least 8 weeks to be processed. It appears that each company has its own demands, human resources and limited budget; therefore, the time for building its own app will be shorter or even longer than 18 weeks.
For some companies, 18 weeks is not so problematic and they can wait for their own app but not e-commerce companies nevertheless have a little bit time for waiting when mobile commerce is exploding. That is the reason why 79% of large online retail store still do not have mobile optimized site or mobile app, according to Culturelabel.com.
As a result, a lot of companies these days are investing in mobile-commerce solutions R&D to find the answer to the issue. Some of them have succeeded in shortening the app building time but failed in customizing process . In detail, it is quite easy and convenient for e-retailers to add more features to their e-store by installing extensions on PC or Laptop. By contrast, when it comes to a native mobile app, they have to hire developers to customize it, which takes them a lot of time and money. 2 or 3 weeks is an average time for building a mobile store app, however, who knows, the customizing process may require up to 18 or even more weeks to be done.
In this case, SimiCart is a smart choice. In the nex upgraded version, SimiCart will be equipped with a new platform – world’s first–ever M-commerce solution which allows adding more features to mobile store app only by installing plug-ins without customization process. Instead of 18 weeks and more for customizing, only a few hours and even minutes, you can have your own Magento mobile app which is built automatically with your desired features built automatically for you.

I think it's easy. Because all they have to do is to download plug-ins that they want to add to their Magento mobile app from market place of SimiCart, then install it and have another app, no technical skills or knowledge required.
I guess its an easy way no doubt,And i have seen people trying that but the thing is it has to be that much efficient and at the same the app shouldn't be a boring one lol. It definitely needs to provide everything that a used expects.
