What is a community based app?
A community based app is as it says; an app that has been created for a very specific audience within a chosen location. These apps are very popular as they help to bring local information and news to the community and they allow the community to come together and respond to local happenings.
The main concept of an app of this style is to encourage social communication and sharing of local information. The app will need to have a forum based style that will allow communication to take place as well as social network links. This will encourage the app to be active both as an app and as a social networking tool.

Can I make money from a community based app?
Most definitely, one great part of building a community based app is that you earn a great income from advertising local businesses and services. Your audience gets to benefit from exclusive app based deals, encouraging them to visit your app again and again, the local businesses benefit from improved trade, and you, you just get to sit back and enjoy the revenue that is derived from the advertisements. Private advertisements are generally secured for a three month, six month or yearly term and are a constant income for app makers as opposed to banner ads that generate a lower variable income.
How do I create a Community based, mobile app?
What we suggest is in order to build a community based app you should build a forum website that can be linked to your app and also social networking pages. Once you have these in place, you can start to create your AppsGeyser app by using HTML and tabs. The HTML page will be built with all the links for your advertising, you can have two or three of these pages with different categories, then attach a further two tabs, one for your forum and one for your social network.
