Increase mobile
brand awareness

Your own branded app is not just about an icon on the home screen. Every chat notification or editorial news push puts your logo right in the users' message center which they use many times per day. App notifications also put your brand on the phone's lock screen. No website can deliver that.

is key

A lot of apps are just html websites wrapped in a native container. That might be a less complex and expensive approach, but experience shows: users prefer and expect truly native apps for iOS and Android.

Native apps provide better user experience, better performance and more security. That's why the tchop apps use native code and latest UX patterns optimized for both platforms. Plus: our apps not only run on smartphones but also on iPads or Android tablets.

get started

Forget waiting for complicated, high-risk software projects. Spin up your first prototype on day one. All your content as well as all the chat features will be available instantly on the tchop apps.

Download and login straight away, invite other editors or readers from the editorial dashboard and start prototyping today. Using the tchop apps will remain free forever, so you can take your time to develop and optimize your content offering.


with your
own app

Our native apps offer a range of options to add your own look and feel. We can customize logo and app icons, color schemes, font styles and other details. Once we have logo assets (as EPS or SVG file) from you and some more information regarding your CI, we can provide your own branded apps for iOS and Android next day.

We will also see you through the rest of the process and can put your apps into the app store - either through our own accounts or through yours. Or distribute apps via an internal MDM platform.

And of course you will benefit from constant updates and improvements of our native app framework in the future.

Build and customise your own solution

Want it your way? No problem. We plan to release the full code of our native apps as open source soon, so you are free to start building your own apps or adjust whatever you want. The code will follow a modular approach.

The Backend SDK should make it very straightforward to integrate the tchop API and to distribute your content to any native iOS and Android apps. If you just want to customize the user interface in more detail you are free to focus on the UI layer, which is easy to understand and work with - without bothering about the rest.

Or you use our platforms flexible Rest-APIs to develop your own app or website from scratch. It's all up to you.
