...provide app content via one or a combination of the following methods:

  • The AppBurst Dashboard
  • JSON, RSS, or XML data feeds
  • Custom data connectors to a client’s database or other backend.

The AppBurst Dashboard is a backend content management system (CMS) developed so clients may upload and edit app content in a user-friendly system with the guidance of tutorials and dedicated AppBurst support staff. Using data feeds such as RSS involve taking existing content (e.g. website blog) and generating a feed to use inside of the mobile application; updates to the original content automatically appear in the mobile app to cut down on manual data entry and streamline the update process. Custom data connectors, which often provide the most flexibility and automation, uses the expertise of AppBurst’s development team to connect to a client’s database or other backend to generate app content.

AppBurst also works with Microsoft Office documents, existing web content, and virtually any other type of data, including the ability upload properly formatted Excel spreadsheets into the AppBurst Dashboard CMS for faster and efficient data entry. Branding and custom design features—including colors, theme, graphics, and artwork—are also coordinated with the client and applicable sponsors to ensure each mobile app is tailor-made for the specific event.
