Ceri.us (SMA) Social Media Aggregator (PWA) Progressive Web App Builder for Instagram
Ceri.us (pronounced SUR - e - US or whatever makes you happy) is a Freemium (SMA) Social Media Aggregator PWA (Progressive Web App) BUILDER capable of indexing images from your private Instagram site into a landing page and/or Progressive mobile Web App (aka PWA). Long story short, you can build a mobile app or social media landing page in as little as a single click using postings and hashtags already posted in your existing Instagram account.
With a bit more input to this extension, you may also add animations, smart links to all your social media sites, maps, phone numbers, email and calendar links.
Ceri.us is in fact capable of aggregating ALL your social media into a single image/video based mobile app or landing page you can easily distribute via email, text, another website OR any and all of your individual social media sites. Including even the Instagram site the Ceri.us app was built from.
A PWA app appears and operates very similar to a native mobile app in the app stores (i.e. Apple and Google Play mobile app stores).
- It has a branded launch icon (that you select) as well as a branded background (you select as well)
- Like a native app, it is capable of running offline and sits on the users mobile home screen.
- But unlike a native app, you need no tedious app store approvals, difficult registration/marketing restrictions, and your users get updates automatically as soon as you make changes.
Distribution couldn't be easier. Your app works on both desktop browser or mobile browser and is built for the user via your own unique URL which is simply ceri.us/<your personal Instagram account name here>.
The building will ONLY build or update an app via this chrome extension and from a chrome desktop browser AND only when you are logged into your Instagram account (this chrome extension detects you are on your account and will not build or update the app otherwise). This allows any of the billion Instagram users to start building apps from their existing Instagram account...well instantly. Without any registration at all.
Of course, premium features are available with prices starting as low as $1 A MONTH and enable increasing number of posts, animations, designations (effectively creating multiple apps in a single app) and business links. Even the free version is branded by you and works offline (maps, phone, posts) as well as any native app from the app stores can work offline.
Building your own web page and certainly a mobile app can cost thousands and even tens of thousands of dollars and take days, weeks and even months of your time. Not to mention the ongoing cost of ownership across multiple mobile and desktop platforms. This chrome extension makes that easy and safe and uses content you personally selected and already placed in your existing (or new) Instagram account.
If you ever wanted your own branded mobile app as a small business owner, online celebrity, club, church or local politician. Or maybe you just need to drive traffic from one of your social media outlets to another. This is your chance with no risk and virtually no or very little cost of ownership!
NOTICE: While the Ceri.us Platform as a Service does index your Instagram and other content you provide including links and comments/hasttags associate with posts, we DO NOT keep, protect or encrypt your images on our back end server. We realize and you recognize that the content we serve to you and your users is completely SOCIAL and is therefore open potentially to everyone. Instagram does a very good job protecting your content with various restrictions and the app you build will not intentionally defeat those restrictions. HOWEVER, by using the Ceri.us app, whether under a paid subscription or not, you agree to hold both AirBridgeLabs and Ceri.us free and clear of all liability due to the loss of any data of any kind (including but not limited to text, image or video) for an indefinite period of time.
DO NOT USE THIS APP IF YOU ARE A MINOR OR WITHOUT EXPRESS PARENTAL OR GUARDIAN PERMISSION AND (of course) THE INSTAGRAM SITE OWNER (even though the extension attempts safeguards against this).
The following (i.e. ceri.us) link is a sample app of the RESULT of creating a mobile app using this chrome extension on an existing instagram account. It took only seconds to build but I did add social media content on my own so maybe 5 minutes total to gather that.
