Ability to convert from phone layout to tablet layout

I would like to be able to convert an app from mobile layout to tablet layout. This is very important as having to create a second app adds more time to solution delivery. It was be great if we could just create either mobile or tablet app first then convert to the other, that would save a lot of time and effort.

Any update on this? I have created a very complex application that took me a couple of months to create in Phone Layout and it would be great if I could switch that to Tablet mode instead of creating it from scratch.

@chass please help us 🙂

It doesn't make sense that projects cannot be converted from one layout to the other. In many scenarios, a project can evolve and is required to support multiple platforms. In the current situation, users are enforced to write the entire solution from scratch if they need to move on from one layout to another.

 

If you start with the Phone layout, and later want to support responsive canvas apps as published here, you reach a dead-end. Am I wrong?

It puzzles me that this is not an included option, it would save me so many hours and will promote the use of powerapps. Now I have to design an app from scratch which is kind of discouraging.

It seems this functionality is not supported yet by Power Apps. However, there is a simple solution suggested by @iAm_ManCat on the follow post https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Power-Apps/Convert-Phone-App-to-Tablet-Looking-for-an-U...

@microsoft, please give your customers the option to choose between the phone or tablet layout, and stop assuming that every app will be for a phone layout.  Thanks!

Agree w @respinosa .  A popup to choose between phone or tablet layout as soon as you select 'create app' from a SharePoint list would be VERY helpful.
