Beautiful designs for smooth running native apps

Our platform supports beautiful design with easily customisable fonts, colours and layouts. You use our simple online CMS screens to build your app, which we convert to the latest React Native code to ensure smooth running across multiple platforms and devices.

Simple build & publish process

Build your app by uploading text and files to our online CMS and use our free preview app to see changes on any Android and iOS device in real-time. When your app is finished, it can be submitted to Google Play and App Store, then use the CMS to push-out instant notifications and content changes at any time.

Simple to set-up location & proximity services

Everything works better in context, so we've made it super-simple to link your content to places and spaces using GPS co-ordinates (location) and beacon devices (proximity) if you wish. Use to show/hide specific content, trigger notifications and unlock teasure hunts..

See some examples

Augmented reality trails, 360 panoramas and more...

Our apps support interactive digital content so you can bring your app to life and engage users of all ages. Augmented reality teasure hunts, 360 panorama photos and videos, points of interest photos and images, before/after images, audio & video - you can add them all as standard using our simple 'card types'.

Locly Native is an easy-to-use, feature-rich app platform

Deceptively simple on the outside, your app is powered by some clever tech on the inside. With Locly Native you can create engaging, fresh and exciting experiences for your users.

Custom Design

Your app layout can be customised by a Locly designer so that it reflects your needs and brand. With custom fonts, colours and icons your app is unique with its own look and feel.

React Native Speed

Offering smooth transitions and fast performance across multiple devices and platforms, React Native is the perfect technology for your app.

GPS & iBeacon

Locly Native supports GPS location services and Bluetooth BLE beacon technology so that you can deliver content based on the app users exact location.

Multiple Languages

Your app supports multiple languages as standard. Allow your users to select a language on start-up, or place your language selector in the side-bar menu to let users switch between languages when using the app.

Push Notifications

Use GPS locations or physical beacon devices to tigger automated push notifications to app users when they are nearby. Or manually send push notifications to devices, wherever they are.

Real-time Preview

Use our simple CMS to create and amend your content, then see changes in your app within seconds. But don't worry - changes are not published to your live app until you're ready!

Multi-layered Content

Our structure of 'Collections' and 'Cards' lets you build up layers of micro-content in your app which can be assigned to different locations or physical beacon spaces.


Our apps work with or without connectivity. Content can be wrapped up in the app to work offline, or can be downloaded via Wifi/3G on the go.

Visibility Rules

Choose exactly who sees what where and when. Use the platform's in-built visibility rules to hide/trigger content and to schedule content visibility by time or date.


Allow users to easily 'Bookmark' collections and cards in your app. Then place a link to them in the sidebar menu so that they are easily accessible in the app

Easy Editing

Choose from different card types to quickly create content. Cards and collections can easily be 'duplicated' or saved as a 'template' for quick replication.

Multimedia & widgets

Locly iOS and Android apps support most file formats so you can create some really amazing content which is automatically converted for you. Audio, video, web-links, widgets, pdf are all supported.

App Analytics

Learn more about your users and how they interact with your app via the Locly app analytics screens. These are web-based and can be linked to your Google Analytics account.

Hardware Supply & Setup

Through our beacon hardware partners we can provide you with indoor and outdoor beacons suitable for every project, and help you to get them setup with an onsite visit.

Store Submissions

Once your app is ready we can help you submit it to to the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. We also support Enterprise Apps for businesses who want to deliver a private app.

So many app possibilities...

Whatever industry you're in, Locly helps you build a great looking native app that will engage & delight your users. Here are just some of the apps that we have helped to create...
