With Zigmos you’ll be able to integrate videos from Youtube, Podcast and Vimeo. If you want to integrate a business video gallery, we recommend creating a Youtube or Vimeo channel in which you’ll upload all of the business’s videos.
You can create a thematic gallery too from other sources than the store (for example, a fashion video gallery for a trendy bar).
Here is how it works, it’s quite simple:
Build and Manage your Mobile Apps
Begin by giving a name to your gallery. If you create several galleries, users will be able to select the one they want to watch:
Then, in the “search” field, what you’re going to enter depends on what type of search you’re are going to select:
CREATE A GALLERY WITH ONLY THE STORE VIDEOS:
You already have created the store channel on Youtube and uploaded the videos on this channel. Let’s suppose this Youtube channel is called “RockCafé”, here is how you create the gallery:
Enter the name you want for your video gallery and then the name of the Youtube channel in the “search” field. Then choose “Channel” for “Type”:
CREATE A THEMATIC VIDEO GALLERY:
Enter the name you want for your video gallery, the keyword you want to search for in the “search” field, and choose “Search” in “Type”:
Here is the result:
If you want to add another gallery, just click on and repeat the process above.
You can also integrate videos from podcasts. To do this, you have to enter the name of your video gallery and the URL address of your video.
If you want to add a channel you have to enter the ID of the channel in the “search” field and select “Channel” in the “type” select box.
You can find the ID of the channel at the end of the channel URL. For example, for this channel:
https://vimeo.com/channels/579789 you just have to enter “579789″.
For the other types of choices (User, Group and Album), it is the same process for Channel. Just enter the ID that reads at the end of the URL. For example to import all the videos of this user:
enter “user34185856″ in the “search” field and select “user” for type.
Zigmos gives you a wide choice of features to put your products and activity forward.
A custom page allows you to enlighten your business in numerous ways. You can write an article with a picture or not, you can publish a photo gallery and you can publish a video directly on this page.
For instance, a custom page gives you the opportunity to create pages as seen below:
Let’s see how you can create a page such as these. First, you need to create a new custom page:
Then you must name your new page (here it will be Our Activities).
A custom page is made up of independent blocks. Thus you can create as many blocks as you want in the same page (in the example page “Our Activities” there are three blocks: one about golf, one about tennis – which are both text sections – and one about the lake which is an image section).
1. TEXT SECTIONS:
Here, we will create the first section, which is dealing with golf. To do this, click on “Text”.
A new text document appears and you can write your article in it.
Then, insert the picture we want in this section. To do that, click on the icon which is circled in red. This icon appears
and allows you to insert your picture.
When this one has been inserted, you can act on its alignment and its size:
Thus you obtain this result:
To obtain the section concerning tennis, click again on
and follow the process we have seen. But you must act on the alignment which must be on the right and not on the left. You can create as many sections as you want (custom pages are made up of independent blocks).
You can also add in your text element a link to a website or a phone number. To do this, click on:
You have to choose the protocol you want to integrate “http://” if you want to integrate a website or “tel:” if you want to integrate a phone number.
Then write in the URL case to link, ex:Website:
2. PICTURE SECTIONS
Creating a photo gallery is as easy as realizing a text section. To do that, click on
and then on “Add pictures”
You obtain this:
You can add a description of your picture if you want. Here again you can create as many sections as you want, you just have to click on
3. VIDEO SECTIONS
The creation of a video section is as easy as the creation of text sections and picture sections. To do that, you must create a new section, click on
Here you have to choose the kind of video you want to integrate into your custom page: YouTube videos, Podcast videos or your own videos.
Enter your research or your YouTube URL in the field. Here I enter “Freeride in Sweden” and then click on OK.
Select the video you want to integrate and then click on to save your video.
Click on . This appears:
Enter your video podcast address ( .xml format) in the appropriate field. Then click on

Select the video you want to integrate to your custom page. Then click on
Click on . This appears:
Thus, to include a video, you have to write the URL address of your video in “Video URL”.
Once you have written the URL address of your video, you can write a little description of it and add a loading picture. To add a loading picture, click on . You obtain this:
This feature allows you to integrate feeds from blogs or news websites either from the business for which you’re creating the application or other sources in relation with the business or both. You can create as many feeds as you want.
Here is how it works:
It doesn’t matter if you know or don’t know the feed link you want to integrate.
Just enter a title for your feed and then the url of the website from which you want to extract the feed. Click ok. If there are some feeds for this website, Zigmos will display them and let you choose the one you want.
To enter a new feed, click on and repeat the process above.
In a second case, you can just enter the name of the site you want to extract the RSS feed. Zigmos will automatically scan this website to find the RSS feeds on this one.
Once your application is featured on the App Store and Google Play, you’ll be able to send push notifications, or your clients if you’re a reseller.

This option allows you to choose if you want to send your notification to all your users or only the ones who are in a specific location.

Click on “Send to all my users” and then click on . This will appear:
It enables you to choose if you want to send your notification now or on a specific date. If you choose “now”, you only have to click on “OK”to send your notification.
But if you want to send your notification on a specific date, this calendar appears:
Choose in the calendar the day and hour you want your notification to be sent. Then click on “Done” to validate your choice.
Finally click on OK to validate your notification. Your notification will be sent at the moment you choose.
Case 2: Send a geolocated notification
If you want to send a geolocated notification, click on “Send to a specific location”. This option enables you to only target people who are in a specific area. Once you have clicked, this will appear:
Here, you can choose where you will send your notification. Enter an address, then enter a radius in which users will receive the notification.
Here’s an example:
Once you have done that, click on to go to the next step. This will appear:
Similar to case one, you can choose if you want to send your notification now or on a specific date.
If you only choose to send your notification to users in the selected area at a selected moment, click on “now” and then them click on “OK”.
Finally click on “OK” to validate your notification. Your notification will be sent at the moment you choose.
Case 3: Send a geolocated notification to users in the area and the ones that will enter in it during an amount of time
To send this kind of notification follow the same process a in case 2. Then when “Additional Information” appears, click on “for a limited period”.
Here again a calendar appears:
Choose your campaign ending date in this calendar. Select the day and hour and then click on “Done” to validate your ending date. Finally click on “OK” to validate your notification. Your notification will be sent at the moment you choose.
