  • Side Menu: Used to navigate both members and visitors to key sections of your community. As with all BuddyPress Native App interfaces, side menus are fully customisable.    

  • Cards: An intuitive way to present activity posts, editorial content and more. Cards are designed to showcase user generated content and encourage members to interact

The smallest details

It’s the little details that count. Like how native OS and Android app menus align differently. Or the way switches and lists are laid out. 

ZippApp for BuddyPress supports both Android and iOS specific gestures and interface elements, giving your community members what they deserve; a complete community experience that compliments their handset.
