Adding content to mobile apps
Enhance the content of your mobile app by managing the out-of-the-box user interface pages or adding custom ones. For example, you can create a native page with a list of pending expense reports that managers can process. You can further improve the user experience in your mobile app by implementing native components, such as mobile search or a floating action button.
With the adaptive and responsive design of the user interface, your mobile app displays the content of the pages correctly on all types of mobile devices.
Add content to a mobile app by performing the following tasks:
- Setting up mobile apps
Create a mobile channel to configure, customize, and generate your mobile app. For example, you can set up a mobile channel for an expense reporting application, to build a mobile app that supports users who work away from their desks.
- Previewing mobile apps
Before you generate an executable file for your mobile app, verify that the pages and layout correspond with your design, and that the application logic functions in line with your expectations. Use a mobile device with the Pega Mobile Preview app to preview a mobile channel that you configure for an application.
- Enhancing mobile apps
Increase the usability and improve the user engagement of your mobile app by enabling and implementing features that ensure a modern mobile experience. You can customize your mobile app and tailor it to both your business needs, and the needs of the users.
- Authoring mobile list pages
Improve the responsiveness and load time of the user interface in your mobile app by displaying the content of your app as a mobile list page. This way, you enhance your mobile app with a native screen that has fluent transitions and a search bar in the header by default.
- Adding a search gadget
Improve the usability of your mobile app by configuring and enabling the search functionality. You can guarantee more meaningful search results and increase the speed of the search by limiting the scope of the search to specific case types.
- Adding a floating action button
Promote the most important action on a page by adding a floating action button to your mobile app. For example, you can add a floating action button that starts a case flow for creating a new expense report in your Expenses mobile app.
- Adding items to the menu bar
Create effective navigation experience in your mobile app by adding pages and actions to the menu bar. For example, you can add a custom profile page to the menu bar of your Expenses app so that users can conveniently access the screen with their basic contact information.
