Absolutely! Frankly, we started as a "Full Suite" offering but we saw that; a. not everyone wanted dedicated, branded mobile apps in app stores, and b. starting with a full suite of apps *felt* a bit "heavy"for some. We couldn't ignore either of those reasons, so we now offer Honeycommb as a Web-app only solution.
We want it to be easy for anyone to launch a full-featured, modern online space for their community. That's why we work incredibly hard to deliver a turn-key solution, whether it be our Web-only or Full Suite of dedicated, native apps that sit in app stores. And also why we've created a system that allows you to start with Web-only and move up tp dedicated apps while maintaining all your content, users, and data.
The simple answer is "no" but there are some native device features that don't exist on web, like mobile device native notifications and access native device tool like a camera and microphone to create content.
Creating and delivering customizable, dedicated, native mobile apps is a very specialized capability that requires brilliant people and constant maintenance to maintain good standing within the regulations and ever-changing requirements of app stores. We still want to deliver a turn-key solution that grows with our clients community size. Because of that, we make the cost based on the number of registered members you have in your community, as apposed to one, large flat rate for anyone that wants branded, dedicated, native mobile apps.
We are entirely GDPR compliant. We are committed to staying up-to-date with all international government requirements in concern to online, data, privacy and stored user information. In addition, you’re able to set your own Terms of Service, Data Policies, and Privacy Policies for your community members.
Honeycommb is a wonderful, self-service product that gives you lots of simple controls and capabilities that allow you to customize and manage your community on your own. We have a wonderful Resource Center that we're constantly updating AND we have an even more wonderful Honeycommb customer community call Colony where you can connect with Honeycommb and other customers for tips, best, practices, inspiration and more. And, if you need more help, we offer Service Packages to help you optimize the use of Honeycommb and the value you bring and receive from your community.
Because YOUR audience is important and when you gather an audience on other social platforms they're not "yours." You’re renting THEIR audience’s attention (at best); THEY control your user’s data, THEY limit reach to your audience, and THEY make you spend money in hopes of targeting “specific” audiences according to THEIR parameters. You're also subject to any changes THEY want to make in the future - changes that could easily affect your brand/business. And how long until they become uncool (Facebook). Stop spending money adding value to THEIR platforms and spend it on your own!
