Mobile In-App Messages offer a way to build and deploy messages within mobile applications. These messages, which are similar to infobar messages that can be added to your website, can be built, managed and deployed from within the Evergage platform. You get the same real-time data and personalization you rely on with Evergage, without having to get a engineer's help and you don't need Apple App Store approval to deploy new or changed messages.

Understand Capabilities

Mobile In-App Messages offer similar functionality to basic web messages including:

  • Formatting options like background color, positioning, and text formatting
  • Message preview on different iOS devices
  • Link to other content like in-app content, external sites, email, or another app (i.e. maps)
  • Insert dynamic content to add data fields like user name or product name to your message
  • Segment targeting including screen views, actions, and locations
  • Multiple experiences to target different audiences within the same campaign

Using Mobile In-App Messages for inline page changes and recommendations requires an API configuration. Multivariate testing and push notifications are not supported.

  2. Add a Target Pages rule to show the message based on a specific action taken or an item action taken
  3. Add a Display Frequency rule to show the message based on visit frequency or a set display interval
