Device Preview

Prev Top Next More


The device preview allows you to see your app as it would appear on different types of devices (i.e., desktop, tablet, and mobile). Previewing your app as you build it is convenient because you can see how it fits on a specific device and make adjustments accordingly.

For example, you could set up a multiple-layout app to have two layouts: one for Desktop and one for Mobile. As you build and configure your app in the Desktop layout, you can switch to the Mobile layout to see how your app fits on a specific mobile device, such as an iPhone 8 Plus.

Web Designer retains the device preview setting for your working session, so you can easily switch between layouts without re-selecting your preferences.
