Bizzy is a Universal App with WebView + Website Template to show your business portfolio, team members, services and info in mobility.

The app has an embedded WebView so you can have it display any responsive website by simply editing a line of code!

   // Replace the string below with the path to your website: 
    public static String WEBSITE_PATH = "http://www.fvimagination.com/bizzy/";

The package contains a fully responsive website template, so all you have to do is to edit the HTML and CSS files, upload them to your own hosting server and set its path in the Configs file of the app.
You can also send push notifications to all registered devices via the Parse Push web console on back4app.com.

Users can contact you with the Contact form, just set your own email address in a php file.

Bizzy is a native Android Studio project, Universal, super easy to customize, html, css and js files included in the “website” folder.




What about free support for this template?

I can offer free support for bugs encountered in the original code. Instead, if you’ve edited the code and messed something up with it, I may apply some fee to fix it either via TeamViewer or by checking your app project files directly on my computer.

How do I rename the app’s package name?

Read this tutorial to learn how to rename a package name: https://hubpages.com/technology/Android-How-to-rename-an-app-package

Should I use the latest version of Android Studio to edit this template?

Yes, I always update my apps to the latest version of the IDE and you also should make sure you’ve updated the Android Tools to their latest version of the Android SDK manager.

The demo APK crashes on startup

Make sure that the minimum Android version of your device is the one listed in the FEATURES section below. If the problem persists, please contact me by my profile’s contact form and send me the Logcat message of you get when the app crashes along with the steps you made to reproduce the crash. Please note that not all real devices print an error Logcat message, in this case just run the APK into the Android Studio’s emulator and you’ll surely get the red messages about your issue.

How do I remove AdMob banner ads?

  1. Enter the .xml files where there’s an AdView and remove its code:
        <com.google.android.gms.ads.AdView
            android:id="@+id/admobBanner" 
            android:layout_width="wrap_content" 
            android:layout_height="wrap_content" 
            ads:adSize="BANNER" 
            ads:adUnitId="@string/ADMOB_BANNER_UNIT_ID" 
            android:layout_alignParentBottom="true" 
            android:layout_centerHorizontal="true">
        </com.google.android.gms.ads.AdView>
    
  2. Enter the .java files where there’s an AdRequest instance into its onCreate() method and remove its code:
            // Init AdMob banner
            AdView mAdView = (AdView) findViewById(R.id.admobBanner);
            AdRequest adRequest = new AdRequest.Builder().build();
            mAdView.loadAd(adRequest);
    
  3. Lastly, remove the play-services-ads reference in the build.gradle file:
        compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads:+'
