When your business has a WordPress website, it’s really easy to convert it to an Android app, thanks to plugins available today, that will do the trick.
Some of these plugins are free while others require you to invest some money to get access to all their features.
Mobiloud is a service that allows you to create Android apps with ease and have a code built to standards.
As with other services mentioned here, you can easily customize your app with your WordPress management panel.
Some of the most interesting features include WordPress, Disqus and Facebook comments, support for multiple user accounts, offline access to your data and category preferences for your push notifications.
Worona is getting more popular at assisting in the conversion of your WordPress website continently and quickly.
The key feature of the plugin is that, unlike many other plugins, it allows your users to read your posts and go through your pages even when it is currently offline. A definite +1 from me.
This app isn’t free to use so it has different packages to choose from.
Besides, you can choose the set of features you would like your app to have and pay for them, so you won’t be paying for something that won’t be used.
They also have the push notification feature to keep your subscribers up to date by sending notifications about new posts and other updates.
AppPresser is arguably the most popular of all WordPress converter plugins that has been around for a while.
It is designed for both the developers and those who don’t know much about mobile app development.
If you’re looking for a seamless way to create an Android app, this is one of the fastest solutions that allow you to get everything up and running in less than 30 minutes.
Moreover, it allows you to access your WordPress management panel and your plugins from within your app. (It doesn’t limit you to creating a front-end mobile site only.)
AppPresser isn’t a free app, and it has bundles to suit different needs.
Whether you’re looking for a mobile eCommerce site, a simple site, an app for social networking, or something more complex, this plugin has a solution for you.

You can toggle this off if you want to use your responsive design, but designs that WordApp has to offer are arguably more attractive than most WordPress websites.
The key feature of this tool is that you can preview what your app will look like. It is not a 100% real-time preview because you have to save your work to see the changes, but it’s pretty helpful.
With many other plugins, you have to select all the options you need and then guess how everything will look on the front-end. With WordApp, there is no guesswork.
WPtouch offers the latest features and the latest themes when it comes to conversion of your WordPress website.
