If you select the info button associated with a pin, a URL can be linked to the pin. Ideal for creating a hunt type game.   NEW: Please note that the map can now be at any level of the menu, the number 9 menu item is no longer reserved just for maps and the map title can be changed to whatever you'd like.  Also, you can add custom colors to each pin using the hex code format ie: ff00ff.

FAQ's

AppYourWay produces apps that take mobile friendly websites and turns them into apps that can be downloaded from the Apple and Google Stores.  In this way you only have to maintain your existing website, not an app.  We also provide these apps for as little as $25 a month.

We use Parse as out backend server to display our menu and icon links contained in our app.  We also store there the landing page of the app and any Manual Ads that you might create.  Push notifications are also sent from Parse making it a very flexible tool for developers.
