Re: it is possible to use powerapps without internet or without wifi

Yes, you can have the application in the cell phone memory, but you have to download it from the cloud at least once to get it in the cell phone memory.  There is no way to load teh app directly into the cell phone without downloading it the first time from the cloud. After that you won;'t need a cell connection.  I believe you will need to refresh the app once every 30 days by accessing the online cloud.

The error message isn't there long enough for me to translate it, but I suspect the problem is that you need to be connected to the Internet after the app is Published at least long enough to run it on your phone once.  Once its cached there you can continue to run it if its been designed to run offline.  But it looks like you don't have it on your phone yet.

Re: it is possible to use powerapps without internet or without wifi

Hi @Pstork1 thanks for response

 

so I can not access the application without internet without having previously run it?

What I need is for users to enter the application of powerapps and access applications without internet and without connection

Isn't there an option that allows me to have the applications in the cell phone memory?

Hi @octaking 

 

They would have to download/install the app once in the powerapps app (which would require internet)

 

After that as long as the app handles offline capabilities then they can work with the App

Hi @Pstork1  

 

How can I download the application from the cloud on my phone and at the same time install it?

Just using it once while connected to the Internet should be all you need to get it cached in oyur Phone's memory.  After that you should be able to use it even when you are offline.

I solved it by anchoring the application to the home screen
