Huge News! New App Market to Make Your Site THAT Much Better

Designing with Wix | October 16th 2012

We’re thrilled to announce one of the coolest additions ever to be introduced to Wix, our brand new App Market is here! A whole new selection of apps  that will seriously boost your website!

 The Wix App Market

What’s an App Market?

The Wix App Market lets Wix users integrate third-party apps to their websites with just a few clicks – no downloading required! These apps were especially customized to seamlessly fit  into a Wix site, so that their look and feel matches your websites.

This means that you now have the ability to add TONS of new features to your website. Want to use a customized contact form? No problem! Need to add a Live Chat support service to your site? There’s a Wix app for that!

As the App Market grows, Wix users will have access to more and more great functions. New apps will be constantly added, and that’s the best parts.
