I bumped into this plugin after browsing the web looking for solutions on how to make an app out from my blog without having any programming skills and downloaded it without many expectations but I am truly amazed on how easy is all the set up process. A few clicks and you will have a native Android application in your phone for your wordpress blog or page. It is also very flexible when it comes to editing the layout of the app and it offers many different options, fonts and themes. You even have the option of sending notifications to the user's phone. The best thing is that is completely free but I'm thinking in getting a paid subscription to get the full potential.

Lo he probado en un wordpress de prueba y es bastante sencillo. Lo pondré en uno de mis blogs para monetizar con el móvil y tener otro canal de distribución de contenido. Gracias!
