Powerapps Mobile/Desktop

Hi everyone,

I just want to ask a question guys, is there a command or connector wherein the application can detect if the user is using mobile or desktop. I know it's kinda funny but I am building an app where the main screen have 2 buttons which navigate the user to mobile or desktop.


What I want is when the app runs, it automatically navigate to the desktop screen or mobile screen. 

Purpose is:

Font and design are not suitable in mobile.
Flexible/Optimize speed inside the screen.

Hi @Caloy,

 

Do you want to detect if the user is using PowerApps Mobile App or PowerApps desktop within your app?

 

Currently, there is no way to detect if the user is using PowerApps Mobile App or PowerApps desktop within your app.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

Hi @Caloy,

 

Not that I know of.

 

There is a kinda idea about it: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Ideas/Get-app-metadata-from-within-the-app/idi-p/47153... which you could vote for.

 

Just mention you also want to be able to read if mobile/web is used.
