Ease of Use

One of the components that makes our app builder so incredibly easy to use is its intuitive nature. This means:

  • You will see your changes take place on the emulator in real time
  • You can navigate through the emulator itself and you will see the editor update.
  • You can navigate through the editor by clicking “Launcher Plugin” or “Plugin Instances” and you will see the emulator update.

Appearance

This is where you control:

  • Your home page or “launcher plugin”, which is the first plugin instance that your users will see
  • Your branding such as your app icon and loading screens
  • Your color theme.

Media Library

This is where you can upload images and use them anywhere in your app. When you upload images, the system will automatically scale, crop, and compress your images for you based on your layout selections
