    Well I created an app, spent all day creating it.


    How do I download the app with an ICON that I can use it even when I'm not online?


    If you are not able to do a hard download of the app, then it isn't actually an app, its just a lower grade website.

    Hi,

    Using progressive web app (PWA) technology, app users can install apps to their mobile devices with the Add to Home Screen option that appears when they open an app in a browser. After adding an app to their home screen, they can use it just like a native app.

    Alternatively, users can access Jotform Apps directly via a browser (without installing the app to a device).

    Currently, these apps can be shared via the share link, invitation option, or QR code under the Publish tab of the Jotform App Builder.

    app-builder-publish

    These aren’t native mobile apps, so they’re not available on an app store like the Apple App Store or Android Play.

    I hope this information helps. Let us know if you have any questions. Thank you!

    Hello,

    Unfortunately, you need an internet connection to use the Jotform Apps. However, you can use the Jotform Mobile App for offline submissions.

    Please check this guide for more information: https://www.jotform.com/help/589-how-can-i-use-jotform-mobile-forms-without-internet-access/

    Note: Jotform Apps is not the same as the Jotform Mobile App.

    Let us know if you have any questions. Thank you!
