A booking app allows you to easily take bookings directly on your own web presence e.g. your website, Facebook page and mobile app. 

It can be embedded or appear as a popover (as in the image below), and any bookings made through the booking app will automatically appear in your Appointedd calendar.

How to create a new booking app
