Hi @Sumaira ,

 

That is not necessary. In my experience, I used to design apps for tablet but confirmed that it is running in my mobile phone with the quality not being affected. However, it will be a different story if you want the orientation of the app different from each devices. 


If you created an app for tablet, then the orientation of the application in your mobile will be on landscape.

 

Hope this helps.


Thanks.

@anabananeiThanks a lot for the response

So does it mean that, if i create for tablet it will be available in landscape mode on my phone with out hiding any components?

Hi @Sumaira ,

Firstly, the app that you created in powerapps could run both in mobile phone and  tablet.

The layout that you choose at the beginning of deginning just affects your app's layout.

But no matter you choose which one, it could run in both of two devices.

 

What's more, you could set the app's layout in File->settings->screen size

If you choose scale to fit , the app's size will fit automatically based on the device that you use.

If you choose lock orientation , the app's  landscape mode will change based on the device that you use.

@v-yutliu-msft @anabananei  Thanks a lot

See the 2020 release plan wave 2 that was just released https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform-release-plan/2020wave2/

 

totally responsive canvas layouts are coming in the next six months. I would just do tablet now because you will want to change it once the responsive pages are released
