Design Step Overview


The Design Step is where you design the layout for your app's homescreen, customize your navigation button, and create each feature's styling, such as the colour and font. This is where you will begin the app-building process, but you can continually add or remove features as you please after you have moved onto the subsequent steps. 

This article provides information on what you can do in the Design step.

Below are some of the things that you can do in each section.
