Custom Mobile Apps

Quickly build custom mobile apps with the Pega Mobile Client service

Get Started

The Pega Mobile Client is a separately licensed service that provides added functionality in Designer Studio. By using this service you can build mobile apps that:

  • Can be used in offline mode, to support users in areas with limited connectivity
  • Use JavaScript APIs to access the hardware functions of the mobile device
  • Can be expanded by building custom modules, if necessary
  • Provide push notifications support
  • Can be distributed using QR codes, or platform-specific app stores
  • Support custom branding

Pega Mobile Client includes a container for HTML5 web applications that are built by using Pega Platform. It works on a mobile device and communicates with the Pega Platform client interface. It enables centralized deployment of enterprise-grade apps on Android and iOS devices. After a web application is packaged in the Pega Mobile Client, a mobile app is created that makes use of device features that are not available in a web browser implementation. Custom mobile apps automatically benefit from the Pega Platform security, integration, and management features.
