Developing mobile apps

Updated on November 9, 2021

Use Pega Platform to efficiently create and deploy a mobile app that supplements your desktop and web applications, and suits different business requirements.

Pega Platform helps you build modern mobile solutions without coding, by providing an intuitive, comprehensive, and model-driven development environment. With a mobile app, you can support field employees and provide a convenient, additional access channel for your business.
For example: The uPlus company has an Expenses application in Pega Platform that their employees use to submit and manage expense reports. To address the latest efficiency audit, the company wants to speed up expense management by supporting mobile expense reports. As a uPlus developer, your task is to build a stand-alone and native-like mobile app that supports advanced mobile device features, such as push notifications or the offline capability.

Mobile app for your business process
Overview of mobile features with custom styling, push notifications, offline mode, and native list pages with swipe actions.
What to do next: Develop a mobile app by performing the following tasks:
  • Setting up mobile apps

    Create a mobile channel to configure, customize, and generate your mobile app. For example, you can set up a mobile channel for an expense reporting application, to build a mobile app that supports users who work away from their desks.

  • Adding content to mobile apps

    Enhance the content of your mobile app by managing the out-of-the-box user interface pages or adding custom ones. For example, you can create a native page with a list of pending expense reports that managers can process. You can further improve the user experience in your mobile app by implementing native components, such as mobile search or a floating action button.

  • Previewing mobile apps

    Before you generate an executable file for your mobile app, verify that the pages and layout correspond with your design, and that the application logic functions in line with your expectations. Use a mobile device with the Pega Mobile Preview app to preview a mobile channel that you configure for an application.

  • Enhancing mobile apps

    Increase the usability and improve the user engagement of your mobile app by enabling and implementing features that ensure a modern mobile experience. You can customize your mobile app and tailor it to both your business needs, and the needs of the users.
