Hi @SpManiac ,

Do you want to display data and update data of dynamics?
I suggest you start from canvas app. Canvas app's logic is more easier than model-driven app. Model-driven app is suitable for complex business logic.

Acoording to your demands, I suggest you use the combination of gallery, display form, edit form.

Here's a doc about how to make this for your reference:

I have never used Dynamics.  I recommend creating a model driven app initially and studying it.  You'll probably eventually create a canvas app as the complexity increases.  

 

I suggest you get this book.  It is a little dated but contains tons of useful info.
