Re: Standalone



As I am aware you have to have Powerapps app, because it is the platform where you are building applications. However, if this helps you can create shorcut of a particular application on your phone desktop.


Hope this helps

Re: Standalone

It would be better to have the PowerApps mobile client on the phone, but its not a requirement.  YOu can also run PowerApps off any supported browser.  If you have a supported browser on your phone that's all you need.  The mobile client provides some advantages and a nicer interface, but it isn't required.

Re: Standalone

Hi @NurNina ,

Do you mean that you want to create an app using in mobile phone?

Of cource you can.

You could use PowerApps to create apps running in IOS, Android mobile devices and Windows PC.

As long as your device meet the requirments, your device could run PowerApps app.

Here's a doc about requirments:


What's more, when creating an app, you firstly need to choose Format: Tablet or Phone.8197.PNG

Choosing this doesn't mean that your app could only run in Tablet or Phone.

It just represents the app's layout.

If you choose "Phone" seletcion, this app will look better in mobile phone. But you could also run it in your computer, just looks not so good.
