How to test Model driven on mobile phone ?

Hi guys,

 

like the title, how to test my ModelDrivenApp on my mobile phone ? It's Android, btw. 

Usually for Canvas App, the apps already listed in PowerApps Mobile application and I just run it for test.

 

Thanks,

Hi @Axal 

To update Power Apps on an Android device, if you click your profile/name in the Play Store and select the 'Manage apps & device' menu item, there should be an 'updates available' menu that will update Power Apps if there's a newer version available.

One other reason why model driven apps don't appear in the app list is that by default, it shows apps that are in production environments only. 

 

If you click the 'head' icon in the top left part of the Power Apps player and select the 'show non production apps' menu item, your model driven apps will hopefully appear.

Hi @Axal 

You can test your model driven apps in the same way.

Your model driven apps will appear in the same apps list in the Android player.

You might need to update the Power Apps app on your Android device if you've not done so in the past few months.

Hi @timl ,

 

May I ask how to update PowerApps app on Android device ? I didn't see place (button) to update, even in Play Store. However I did decided to uninstall and install again, I guess it will get the latest, but still I only see my Canvas App inside the list. 

 

Thanks,
