Release: Our March, 2018 update is here

Create apps in one of our 79 supported languages, with correct formatting of numbers, dates and times. Make apps bigger or smaller with the new zoom level feature.

  • Determine the device type from formulas. New properties help you determine if your user is using an iPhone, an Android device, a Windows PC, an iPad or a Mac.

  • Force a 24-hour clock for time fields. Some countries use a 12-hour clock in everyday life, but a 24-hour clock in some professions. Our new release enables you to use a language that normally uses a 12-hour clock and still use a 24-hour clock for some time fields. Learn more »
  • Customize subject lines of reports. Assign subject lines to reports you send from apps with our new release. You can determine the subject line using a formula, enabling you to include parts of the report in the subject line itself. Use this feature in conjunction with labels or rules in your email client to automatically sort incoming reports. Learn more »

  • Include only selected fields in reports. Reports sent by your users normally contain all fields of your app or only the fields of the current panel. This tip demonstrates how you can select precisely what fields to include, which cuts down on the size of the reports. Learn more »
