Getting a custom app that you’ve made, onto your phone, or into the hands of your team or customers, is an exhilarating feeling. With Glide, you can build an app and add it to your phone in two simple steps, in under five minutes. Here's how:
Step 1: Copy a template
The easiest way to get up & running is to copy a TEMPLATE. We're going to start with the Task Tracker template. You'll find this in the list of sample templates at the bottom of your DASHBOARD – just click the plus (+) icon to copy.
Step 2: Send the app to your phone
Your new app will automatically be published – but only accessible by you. Before we customize the app, we're going to get it on your phone. This is the coolest thing about Glide apps – how easy they are to share & update. 😎
You can scan the QR code above with your phone or text the link to yourself. If you don't see this screen, just hit 'Share' at the top of Glide.
🏠 Add the app to your home screen
If you visit that link on your phone, you'll view your app in your phone's browser. However – we want to add it to our home screen, just like a regular app. Watch this video to learn how 👇
Step 3: Make a change
There's so much you can do to customize your app. The best place to start is the Settings area. Here you can change many different things about your app with a single click. Here are some suggestions for your first change.
Change the theme & accent color
Upload your own logo
Change the privacy settings of your app if you want other people to access it
There's a lot more to building apps with Glide, and we've only just started on your journey. To learn more, you can check our university or click on some of our resources below.
