There are a few ways to experience your Universal App on your phone or tablet.

Connect your Universal App to a domain

The easiest way to preview your app is by connecting a custom domain to your Universal App. Once your Universal App is connected to a domain, all you have to do is access your app on mobile using the designated domain. If you don’t want the app to go live yet, you can contact support and ask us to lock your Universal App with a code so no one else can get access to it.

Preview your app through Universal App admin on your mobile device

To do this, first, you need to log in to Universal App admin on your preferred device. Once you’re in, use the Live Preview button as you would on your desktop. You’re now ready to experience Universal App on mobile!

Please note: Logging into Universal App admin on mobile is only recommended for previewing purposes. Universal App admin is NOT intended for mobile use, therefore, only make changes to your app on your desktop.

Preview your app using your browser

Since Universal App is responsive, you can use Live Preview as usual on your desktop browser and adjust your browser window size to mimic mobile screen size. The result will pretty much show how your Universal App will look on a mobile device.

Another way to do it is by using developer mode on your browser - we’re using Chrome browser for example. For Chrome, click F12 for Windows and Cmd+Opt+I for Mac. Once developer mode is open, click on the little mobile icon at the top left of the console. See below:

Please Note: This is just a quick workaround, you won’t be able to have the full experience without touch screen. To have a full mobile experience, we recommend connecting a domain or using Live Preview on mobile.
