How to use your Microsoft PowerApps on your devices

Escrito por Manpreet Singh - 03/08/2017

In my last article we learnt how to create an app using Microsoft PowerApps where we created an app to track our daily tasks and activities. As we are aware the app is performing well on our desktops on the PowerApps studio but as we call it as an app, it should be available in all our tablets and phone isn’t it.

Don’t worry, in this article we will see how to use the apps on your devices and use the best created apps by you and your organization on the PowerApps platform.

·       As for android users, open your play store, windows users open your market place and similarly iPhone users can open their iStore.

·       Search for PowerApps.

·       You will see the app as per the screen below, download and install it.
