How to Build Your App - Our Core Features
Welcome back! In the last lesson, you learned about what MobAppCreator is, a little bit about the App Dashboard, the difference between Screen Features and Platform Features, and how to preview your app.
In this lesson, we’ll take a closer look at the core components of the App Dashboard that you’ll use to both build and manage your app. When you first created an account, you either started with a blank app, template, or you had our awesome Pro Services team design and construct your app for you.
As we mentioned in our last lesson, if you’re building the app yourself, the templates will provide you with an awesome starting point so that you can simply swap out your content and have a ready-to-launch app. If you’d like our Pro Services team to either design your app or build completely custom features for it, we encourage you to click here to get in touch with them.
