Beachfront Builder is an online tool that allows you to build native apps with video for most modern devices.
It's an app that lives on your device, not inside your browser (well, there is more to it than that, but for our purposes that will do).
Again, that's a tough question. In our case, if it plays online video, then it's probably/ hopefully modern. We consider Androids, iPhones & Smart TVs to be modern.
If you have video & you want people to see it everywhere, Beachfront Builder is simply the fastest way to do it.
You should, its fun!. Building lots of apps for lots of devices is really hard & takes a lot of time. When you add; award winning technology (ours), chart topping apps (ours) & proven video technology (we handle millions of people & thousands of video sources on our site www.beachfrontbuilder.com), with our new features (like analytics, revenue, custom design & social support) in a beautifully animated package. Building that requires a large team of experts (we know, it's what we do best).

Beachfront Builder supports iOS 6 and up.
App Builder already supports over 200 distinct mobile devices. We can not guarantee full support on all Android mobile devices. As new phones are introduced to the market we support them.
With 2.0 we allow app makers to see exactly how their app is doing, by platform, demographic and revenue.
Our new update makes it easier for your community to go cross platform by importing their Watch Later lists and other data for increased convenience.
A channel is a container for a specific type of content in your app displayed in a list in the slider menu. You have the ability to add or remove all channels but for the Search, Settings, and Home channels. There are three main types of content that we feature, Video based, Social based, and Content (Page) based channels. Your app must have at least one channel. We also provide the ability to rearrange and group channels in the Manage section, accessible after you start your build.
A special multimedia channel for users to see the latest your app has to offer as soon as they open your app. The top section of the page allows you to upload logos or promotional content. Underneath the banner are sections that pull real time updates from your various channels to advertise them under your banner.
Import playlist feeds from various sources to create channels. Or we also allow users to create a channel and fill it with videos uploaded into the Manage section after you start your build. We have added the ability to link content from native stores to specific videos for ecommerce.
We are working to expand the features we offer with the ability to create channels showcasing your social media. We currently support Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr social sites with the complete social interactivity offered by the social service. Each channel is limited to one social feed at a time.
Pages are Content Channels that let you add additional information about yourself. These include the About Page, Contact Page, or import a mobile URL page into your app.
We have built in the ability to link videos with native store content (Ex: itunes music) and allow you to create a Page with your own online store by including the URL in the Mobile Page Channel. We also include our Beachfront .iO video ad mediation package.
We try to allow you as much customization as possible. From the Splash Page, the Home Banner, Logos, Colors, ect.
We give you the ability to choose text or a graphic that will appear at the top of the app in the navigational bar. Due to the small space a horizontal transparent icon usually works best.
We have a sampling of textures for you to use or you are welcome to upload one of your choice. Please be careful to watch out if the text and texture conflict and become hard for your users to read.
We recommend that you use high resolution pngs for the best results. We are using a greater number of images to help you achieve the best branding for your app. In cases such as the Splash image and Home Banner one image can be uploaded and shared in other areas of the app.
