Finally, the release of Magento 2 has hit the door after many years of trial. Still maintaining the former functions of version 1.9, version 2.0 continues to develop to a brand new level integrated with so many unique points. Thanks to the effortless attempt of ecommerce experts, the world has welcomed one of the most dominant platforms to build efficient online business.
Now, the trend of going mobile is also understandable as there is sharp increase in the number of mobile smartphones and users. Therefore, a website is not enough, you should also get a mobile shopping app to catch up with the trend. Converting from a Magento website to a Magento sales app is not strange, but if you just hear about building app on Magento version 1 to 1.9, then you should update your mind with the new hypothesis:
It is possible to Build Magento app on Magento 2.0 platform?
New points of Magento 2 have been released. If a Magento 1.9 or 1.14 merchant has advanced customization (i.e. inventory synchronization, custom modules, etc), then all of this will need to be re-built for Magento 2.0. Looking at its generic picture can determine whether one merchant can build up an app with it. Sure, this test will be carried out on one of the best mobile app builder Simicart. Let’s see whether Simicart can turn a website Magento 2.0 to a standard Magento 2.0 app.
