Copying vs Cloning your App

In Adalo you can create a Copy and a Clone of your App. Here we will explain you what's the main difference between those.
Skill Level: Beginner

Before You Begin

  • You need a basic understanding of The Adalo Database​
  • Make sure you have an app to be copied or deleted in your Adalo account
  • Cloning and Copying Apps work in all Adalo Plans

Copying your App

This is the best option if:
  • You are willing to have a Duplicated App that shares the same collections and Records as your original App (meaning that any changes made in any of the apps will get reflected on all the Copies of the App).

Cloning your App

This is the best option if:
  • You are willing to have a Duplicated App that carries the Original App Collections but has a completely separate Database from the original App (meaning that both databases are independent and changes will only be reflected on the Current App).

Learn More

  • If you have any Custom Actions on the original App please be aware that if you change your App's team those won't work and you will have to set them up again
  • An app (and any shared databases) can be published to a custom domain, the Apple App Store, and the Google Play Store — this still counts as one published app
  • Apps that share the same database also share a “published” status
