Convert Bubble apps to mobile Application

Hi John

How can I place my json file in the root of Bubble? What does that json file contains? The whole app?

Place your file :slight_smile:

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.


Hi @neysha,

Have you seen this post? Create a free app in 10 minutes with Bubble

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?

Thank you

Hi @bennyogor,

There is a new way, you can try, 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.

Hello @dmitmoretz89

Bubble is a RAD+ Development better than Wavemaker imo. :wink:
Using Bubble is also free. Convert app to Apple or Google Play is also easy.

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?

Hello @jared.gibb

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. :slight_smile:
10 min. to build a free iOS / Android native app with Bubble :large_orange_diamond:

Hello I have tried several options for making our into a android application. It works, but the main issue I have is with the buttons, which are links to other sites and Tel and sms links, I want it to open in the default browser. but it opens inside app. and the Tel and Sms links crash. Not sure if this helps but I have used the Webviewer tool in Android studio. I also tried Thunkable and it did not work as well. Any ideas are appreciated. Also, has anyone tried and does it work? IF anyone wants to see the app I built it is here.
It doesnt look as good in the Web, but mobile web looks fine. I am still working on the kinks. Thanks for the help!
