Bridge the Gap from Print to Digital


Competing in a world with e-readers and tablets is tough business. 

At The App Concept, we see the challenge as an opportunity to bring traditional print media into the digital world. Using our QR codes and easy to create mobile websites, we bridge the gap and connect publishers to online mobile users. Whether it's watching an exclusive interview or getting a preview of the next book, we help publishers engage, acquire and retain valuable customers.

"The App Concept platform is easy to use and we're definitely incorporating more QR codes and The App Concept pages in our mobile marketing campaigns. And the The App Concept team is fantastic—responsive, helpful, and quick to adapt
