Use Both Standalone Power App and Customized form to update Sharepoint Online List?

I have a Sharepoint Online list. I built both a customized form and a standalone app to update fields in the list in case users wanted to use one or the other. However, is it even possible to have both options function simultaneously on the same list? Or do I have to choose one or the other?

There is no problem with having both the standalone app and customized form.  In fact this is something I like to do with my applications.  The standalone app provides a nice interface for the end-user while the customized form is acts as an excellent admin panel for myself or others to make any necessary edits.  I think what you are doing is an excellent idea!

 

As for the technical reason why this is ok:  the standalone app and the customized form are simply an easy way for the user to change values in a database.  It is the database that handles concurrency issues.
