Creating an App

Creating a new App is quick and easy. Now design once, publish everywhere.

Skill Level: Beginner

Before You Begin

  • Make sure you've read about the new Definitions and Terms for developing responsive apps.

  • Make sure you have an Adalo account and are logged in.


1. (Optional) If you already have apps in your Adalo account, click on the app selector dropdown in the Builder and choose Create New App

2. In the app selection modal, choose how you want your users to access your app.

Don't fret over this decision!

You can change which devices you are building for at any time. You can toggle this back and forth by modifying your App Layout Type.

Mobile, Tablet, and Desktop - we call these Responsive Apps. Choose this option if you expect your users to use your app at all these different screen sizes.

Mobile Only - we call these Mobile apps. This is best option to choose if you are new to Adalo! You can optimize your app's design for Mobile screens and then iterate on it for larger screens by toggling your App Layout Type.

When you have selected, click "Next".

3. Select a template to get started with, or choose Blank to create a Responsive App from scratch, then click Next.

If you're just starting with responsive, it can be helpful to play around with a template first to see how different component setting affect their responsive behavior.

4. Choose a name for your app, the Adalo team if applicable, and some branding colors, then click Create.

5. Congrats! You just created a Responsive Web App that you can publish to web, iOS, and Android!
