Let’s dive right in!
To install an app on your website, you need to go to the WIX dashboard. On the left hand navigation bar, you will see the Apps feature. Here is where you will find all the apps on your WIX site, including ones already installed.
From here you can install new WIX apps on your site and manage ones you’ve already installed.
WIX apps can be an amazing asset on your website. They can improve the user experience and are helpful for taking your website that extra step. Overall Wix has over 300 different applications, and you can search for a specific app within the search bar of the dashboard.
What Can You Do With WIX Apps?
One of the essential parts of any website is gaining traffic. Traffic is potential customers. To improve traffic in the future, a website needs a range of things. A website needs to work efficiently, be easy on the eye and be welcoming to all users.
Otherwise, it might be hard to retain traffic.
To keep on top of all these, the WIX app market is the perfect place. Here you will find a range of apps that will improve your site’s functionality. The app market has been tried and tested by top tool testers also, so you know that, if used correctly it can only help develop your site.

Useful and Interesting WIX Apps
When looking through the WIX app market, you will find a range of apps which are very useful. Some might be useful on your site when you first visit the WIX app market and some others may be useful in the future.
For example, on the WIX market there is a timer countdown application. This allows you to set a date and time a certain feature on your site will end. If you have a WIX store site, this would be particularly useful if you ever run a seasonal sale.
WIX also offer a range of their own native apps. Overall there are 110 WIX applications at time of writing. With these apps you can create forms, start a blog and include a store on your website.
There is even a WIX chat app which allows users to contact your site directly through a live chat feature.
You can even start to take bookings on your WIX sites with apps such as Simpl-E-Schedule, Vacation Rental Booking and Scheduling Pro.
One thing to look out for when wanting to use a WIX app is the app compatible with your version of WIX.
Different apps need a premium account to use on WIX, others give out a free trail and many are just free to use. Don’t get yourself stuck paying for an app because you used a free trial, when there could possibly be another app that does the same job for free.
How to Use a WIX App to Add Exit Intent Pop-Ups to Your Website
Of course, the best way to learn any new skills is to look at a real world example. So, let’s look at the steps for adding a couple of different high profile apps to your WIX website. Specifically, we’ll look at adding three different exit intent pop-up apps.
