If you have multiple apps you’ll have to repeat these steps to enable Android Push Notifications for each app. Please be sure when you save the files with the correct names so that we don’t get confused about which files go with each app. This can be easily messed up.

Publishing on the Web

  • Publishing on web is super easy! Navigate to the 'Publish' tab inside of your app, then click on 'Publish to web' to see the URL that your app will be published under

  • Adalo automatically creates a web address for each app that you publish (for example, Wander's url is wander.adalo.com/tripplannerapp). If you want to change the url, click the edit button
