Build a Mobile-Friendly App

Overview


You can use UiPath Apps to build mobile-friendly apps. The same app can be used on devices with different screen sizes, such as mobile phones, tablets, or computers, without any issues.
To demonstrate this, follow the steps from the Tutorial section.
You can also find a sample app file with more examples at the end of this page.

Tip:

In the case of the Container layout control, the containers inside are automatically mobile-friendly. If the controls inside the containers need to be reactive as well, use the Allow wrapping property.
