Why Doesn’t Thinkific Have A Mobile App?

On the other hand, Thinkific offers features that you don’t get with other mobile app course creation platforms, such as removing the Thinkific branding. You can also create custom domains on the site. Thinkific doesn’t offer a mobile app because it would be challenging to host all Thinkific sites.
However, the fully mobile responsive platform allows you to create your courses and custom domains on the go through tablets, smartphones, or laptops. Mobile apps take up space on your phone. Since Thinkific isn’t an app, you won’t have to contend with making space to update the app constantly.
Is Thinkific Mobile-Friendly?
