Feature details

Canvas apps and model-driven apps are two rich ecosystems of Power Apps that bring different sets of capabilities to users. Today, there is no way for users to access both of these applications using a single mobile app.

With the Power Apps mobile app, users will be able to access all of their favorite apps in a single mobile application without the need to switch. App makers can deliver targeted experiences to users on a single mobile application; either through a pixel-perfect, task-based, canvas app or through a declarative, metadata/model-driven app. Both canvas and model-driven applications will appear together in a single list of apps in the current Power Apps mobile app.

Model-driven applications also have a brand-new experience that is optimized for mobile users. Usability enhancements to some of the core components of Unified Interface include a native look and feel, gesture support, updated animations, and interaction patterns that are intrinsic to mobile.
