You can design your application on the desktop only.
Drag and drop software blocks
You app is ready to be customised at this step. In the next article, we’ll dig deeper into creating apps.

Edit the labels of each software block by clicking on the blue pencil icon. Edit the Label, Description and Placeholder values to something relevant.
For example, you can drag a “Date” block and edit following details to make it relevant:
- Label – Date of Birth
- Description – Please provide your date of birth
- Placeholder – DD/MM/YYYY
Click Save. Don’t bother about “Workflows” section at the moment. We will dig deeper into it in the next articles. For now, click next to the “Publish” section.

Download Clappia’s mobile app and login using your credentials. You will find your mobile app there! Enter a few values there as well.
Come back to the tab where you were designing the app. In case you are lost, navigate to your app from the Clappia’s dashboard and click on the edit application icon on top right.
