Understand rebranded mobile app

Zoho Creator enables you to download your creator application as a separate mobile app for iOS and Android devices. 
  • The native mobile app can be created for the iOS and Android mobile operating systems, provided certain prerequisites regarding the developer certification are fulfilled for the respective operating systems.
  • The native app can be created in two different variants for the employees (users) and customers, respectively. The app for users is for internal purposes and can be used within the organization. Integration of the native app with Zoho's MDM is available. The app for customers is for external distribution, which will facilitate the interaction of the customer with the admin's organization.

For example, let's assume the admin belongs to an organization known as Zylker. The organization Zylker can create an app for its own employees. This app will enable the employees to mark their attendance and enter details about their sales. Assume the app is named 'Zylker Employees'. This app can be distributed to all employees via any MDM (Mobile Device Management). Using an MDM would ensure the limited distribution of the app only to the employees of the organization. Zylker can also use a Zoho Creator application to get orders from customers. On a computer, the customer will visit the customer portal and place orders. However, on mobile phones, the process is totally different. The customer has to download the 'Zoho customer portal' app from App Store or Play Store. By using the native app feature of Zoho Creator, the admin can create and share Zylker's native app on the App Store or Play Store with Zylker's credentials instead of Zoho's. The app may be named 'Zylker Orders' and the customers can download it and order straight away, with Zoho Creator taking care of all the backend processes.

Mobile SDK

Mobile Software Development Kits (mobile SDK) provide a set of software development tools that allow for a wide range of mobile apps for smartphones and tablets. The Zoho Creator Software Development Kit (SDK) is aimed at helping you easily build a custom app with multiple features and functionalities. The SDK methods enable you to programmatically fetch and edit data within different Zoho Creator modules such as FormsReports, and, Pages. Additionally, you can design the app's UI according to your style guides while powering the back-end development using the SDK.
The Zoho Creator SDK is available for both Users and Customers.
Access app as Progressive Web App (PWA)

PWA is one that enables a native app-like experience on a mobile browser. This technology offers a dual advantage. Firstly, for your users—your apps will enable a native mobile app-like experience on their mobile browsers. Secondly, for you, the app owner—this offers a quick and platform-independent means of app distribution. In other words, your users will be able to access your apps from any mobile device that supports browsing the internet. 

When a user accesses your Zoho Creator app as a PWA, they'll have access to the following features and experience the following limits:
