Mailgun is email for developers. Mailgun has elegant REST API to send and receive emails from your mobile app. I know that many Appery.io developers send emails from their apps for registration, confirmation, and everything else. To make it simple to use the Mailgun API in an Appery.io, we have introduced a Mailgun plugin in Appery.io.
The plugin has a sample app with one page that shows how to send an email using the API. You can use the sample app as a starting point or add the plugin to any existing app. Let me show you how to configure and use the plugin.
User login/registration is one of the most common features in a mobile app. With Appery.io Database’s built-in user management feature, adding a login and registration capability to an app is very fast and simple. We know that developers love examples and so we created a ready-to-run app available in the App Builder that shows how to do that. In fact, we created two examples: one example uses Bootstrap and another example uses Ionic, both based on AngularJS.
To create an app from an example, click Create new app > From example and choose the example you want from the list of available examples.
