Components— The building blocks of the Adalo interface.
Actions— Used to specify what your app should do when you click a particular component.
Database— Like an Excel spreadsheet, the database allows you to enter data to display to app users or to collect the data that they input into the app.
To get started building your app, think about which screens you want to build, what those screens should do, and what data they'll need to display and save. Be sure to check out our guide to app data.

From Account Settings you can edit the following:

Every app gets it own URL for viewing on the web
The URL follows the format of: subdomain.adalo.com/app-name
This where where you can customize the "subdomain" part of that URL
You can also set your app's URL to be on your own domain so that your app's URL is something like app.mycompany.com
