Where to find app templates - missing creativity

Hey together,

 

a small question. I need some input for the layout of my future apps. I have created some apps but all of them looks like the same only with other colors. Are there some websites with templates and examples? Unfortunately, I lack creativity 😄

 

I already found this page from powerapps: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Community-App-Samples/bd-p/AppFeedbackGallery

 

Thanks for all imput.

 

 

Best regards,

CanD

Hi @CanD ,

 

As far as I can tell, the community is for PowerApps users and app makers to communicate ideas and get supports so there are App samples shared by the talents, who will also answer questions or provide suggestions if you have encountered any issues. I think there are enough samples for PowerApps beginners to learn functions or ideas, since the samples basically have covered various types of scenarios.

 

Certainly, in other places such as GitHub you may find more samples, but it would be difficult to verify security of them and could not get enough support as well.

 

Hope this helps,

Hi @v-jefferni 

 

thank you for the answer. I am not sure if you got me right.. I do not need a whole project in powerapps. I only need some input regarding the design of an app. I always use the same colors the same layout. Even the assignment of the buttons is always the same. Somehow i find it difficult to come up with something new how to design an app in Power apps...

Me too @CanD !!! 

Only in december a had to make 3 apps on powerapps.

And i have the same issue, all apps seems the same, one like another, thats sucks!

I cant have new ideas for UX when I make new apps, ITS HARD TO BE CREATIVE IN POWERAPPS 🤣!

Thanks for sharing your cases!

@PedroBrandt  i really understand you 😀 If we would create IOs or Android apps, we could look in the App Store for examples. I guess PowerApps do not have something like that or maybe we do not now it at the moment. I really hope there is a website where users share their layouts with us. I hope someone can help us with this...

Hi @CanD , @PedroBrandt 

 

When I was a beginner of PowerApps, my first 2 or 3 apps were basically the same as well, so I think I could understand your concern.  Since one of the goals PowerApps and Power Platform would like to achieve is that everyone, not only app developers, would be able to create apps they need for their works, we need to strike a balance between simplicity and customization. 

 

I believe that layouts are serving scenarios, which means if you would like to achieve some goals or functions, then you will start thinking how to make it with such layouts or controls and formulas, that's why after months or even years working on making apps, people would become more "creative".

 

In the end, my suggestion:

1. Firstly, clarify your scenarios, list all the goals or functions you would like to achieve.

2. If you have no idea how to make it, try looking into samples in the community which are close to your scenario.

3. If no close samples, try searching the community by functions you need, there could be some questions raised by other partners including their design for reference.

 

Hope this helps.
