Step 2:-
 
Now as you can see in below image, we are on the home page of PowerApps, if you have good knowledge of PowerApps then you can directly create PowerApps by clicking on the options under "Make Your Own App" and if you are beginner then skip this step and follow Step 3.

That's it, we are done with our first sample app, now see how it looks like.

This one was demo app where I demonstrate to connect Business central data with Power Apps, now based on that I have created one proper Power App in which I have used Business center Role center, List and Card page of Vendors, Purchase orders and Purchase Invoice and Inventory modules. You can say Business Central Important modules integrated with Power Apps.
