I think I just responded in another post on accident, over here: Wrapping apps in Dropsource
How can I place my json file in the root of Bubble? What does that json file contains? The whole bubble.is app?
Place your file
This file will content the json instructions (not the Bubble app) needed to be seen once compiled in iOS and Android store (have to be approved only once). Every change after that, no need to submit to stores. Just change it directly on you json file and your customers will be update on the spot.

And you don’t need anymore a json file.
This link doesn’t work lol
Is there a new one? And why don’t you need json anymore?
Thanks catching this. Bubble forum have a glitch.

@Bubble (see my last post)
There is a new way, you can try nativator.io, it’s a tool for bubblers that converts your web app into a native mobile app without code and at affordable cost. Only for Android as of today but currently working on IOS version.
Please browse main topic for details it’s a tool for bubblers or any responsive website owner
TBH, I don’t have such problems, because I prefer to use apps that I make on my own. BTW, I’m not even a programmer. I know something about programming, of course, but not too much. The secret is - I use low-code platforms in order to make my own apps. I use it for the rad development mostly. I really like Wavemaker. It’s user friendly and effective at the same time. Using this platform is free, because it has a trial period. It helps me to save some money every time I need a new app.
Bubble is a RAD+ Development better than Wavemaker imo.
Using Bubble is also free. Convert app to Apple or Google Play is also easy.

In the meantime, Ideate, Nativate!
No in app purchases functionality, correct?
Added to roadmap. Thanks.
What is your opinion now, after 2 years?
The same, hasn’t changed!
I’ve checked “Best Thunkable X apps of 2018/2019”. It seems they are also not great enough. I’ve created a topic to talk about web wrappers, fill free to join
The best apps will be better during the coming year for thunkable, they have released some nice updates. It’s not the same as bubble but you can create some nice things. They’ve come a long way the last couple years!
Doesn’t jasonelle/jasonette allow for the creation of a “native” app? Doesn’t the JSON count as native code when it’s loaded onto the phone. Or are those simply wrappers and i am confused?
Yes, Jasonelle can be a full native application by default. Using the web view (wrapper) inside Jasonelle makes it easily usable with Bubble and can act as a hybrid application as well. Well done, no one will see that this is a half-part native/web app. I suggest separating your app by page instead of putting everything in one place if you think your app will be complex.
Hello @JohnMark ,
I am not a coder but your solution seems not to be that hard. The only question I still have is Can we publish the app after on the apple store and android store ?
And could we be sure that it will be well done and stores will accept the app ?
I had answered you.
