Increased client loyalty
A custom mobile app is a powerful way to boost your client retention, engagement, and spending. Plus, with branded apps clients can book, schedule, and access your business directly from their phones.
Improved client connection
Send push notifications to stay connected with your customers. You can send deals and events announcements, automatic “we miss you” messages, and class cancellation notices.
Make your brand accessible 24/7—allow your customers to easily manage their schedules from their phones in real time, from wherever they are, whenever they like. And your schedule updates itself with every booking.
Save time by letting clients manage their memberships themselves. They can check payment balances and classes remaining, manage their spots on waitlists, pre-pay for services, and more—all in the app.
Three simple steps to your own branded mobile app
We design it
We incorporate your logos, colors, and the look and feel of your business into your app.
You review the design
You provide feedback to ensure your app looks just the way you envision it.
Your app in the app stores
We help place your app in the app stores and it’s ready for your clients to download.
Affordable and functional across all platforms
Branded apps are much more affordable than hiring an outside developer to build one for you. Your app will work across iPhone, iPad, and Android platforms. Continuous updates are included.
Synced with your VOD content
Give clients direct access to your video-on-demand library whenever and wherever they want. VOD is native to your branded app, so they can cast it to their TVs through the app. There’s no setup for you—and an easy-to-use VOD report gives you all the metrics you need to gauge your content performance.

Frequently Asked Questions
- How will a branded app help me increase bookings and revenue at my business?
With a dedicated branded app, your customers’ experience with your business is easy—they’re one click away from booking and buying your services and products. Mindbody businesses who have branded apps have seen an increase in bookings and sales.
- How customized is the app to my business?
Your branded app will be completely designed to match your business colors, logos, and images. Our team collaborates closely with you to make it uniquely yours, and customized to meet your business needs. You can add the navigation tabs you need, such as a section to showcase your promotions, links to social media and your classes, appointment, workshops, or training tabs based on your business offerings.
- What are push notifications, and how do I use them?
A push notification is a message that you write and send from your branded app dashboard that will go out to everyone who has your branded app installed and has agreed to receive your messages. The messages appear directly on a user's app home screen. When a customer interacts with the notification, they’re taken directly into your app. We've seen Mindbody businesses use push notifications successfully to promote new classes or services, seasonal promotions, special events and deals and discounts for loyal customers.
- How will my customers know about my branded app? Will Mindbody help me market it?
The most effective way for your customers to learn about your branded app is to hear about it directly from you and your staff. We’ll provide you with a unique link you can send to them via SMS text, where customers will be directed to download the app (automated SMS texts are available at the Accelerate and Ultimate software levels).
- How long do I have to wait until my branded app is live in the app stores?
Our goal is to get your app published in iTunes and Google Play as soon as your business is ready for the app. That takes close collaboration with you and with our onboarding specialists. We'll need to coordinate design, your business logo, your business images, and anything else we can use to give you a completely branded experience.
