click image to As more and more customers use their mobile devices for information, directions and scheduling, salons that use mobile apps to engage with their customers to provide enhanced service are better positioned for growth in 2013. To help make the process easier, Appsbar has created a “Create your Own App” platform, which is available now for free for salon owners to create their own apps, even if they have no technical experience.

Apps with Appsbar can be created in short amount of time and be published to leading App Stores including Google Play. Appsbar was designed to fill the gap between over-simplified apps and costly, professionally-produced apps. With a myriad personalization options, Appsbar provides an interface that guides creators through the entire process – from creation, to editing, to publication - with visual and textual clues at each step. Depending on the type of app being created, additional features may also be added.

“We know that competition is fierce in the salon industry and one way for a salon to separate itself from the competition is to have a compelling mobile app that provides content and information,” says Scott Hirsch, founder and CEO of Appsbar.  “No technical knowledge is needed to create an app via Appsbar and it has the potential to be seen by customers in your hometown or across the world.”
