In the resources section, there is a help center where you can find more than three hundred articles on features of design and app building process.
All these resources you can use in order to increase the overall performance of your app that you are going to create.
In the left side of the windows, you can see menu like Dashboard, create, publish, manage, grow, settings etc. we will go into deeper analysis of those menus as we proceed ahead.
 
 

Create

We actually design and build our app under this menu. This menu contains both the options like Design and Build. Let’s understand what the design menu contain and how we can implement it on our app.

HomeScreen

HomeScreen Layout

The first customization tool that is available in HomeScreen tab is HomeScreen layout where you can select from four presets to give the look to your app. it is very important as it is the layout of your app and the user is going to see it when it opens the app every time. So it is important for the overall experience of the app.
 
There are four layouts i.e. slide out menu, grid menu, Scrolling menu and top bar menu that you can choose from. I am going to select the first one. You may choose whichever you want.

The second customization is available in this tab is the color customization for the app where you can change the Background color, Brand, Homescreen Background and Carousel Image for the app.
 

Background Color

This is the color below your home screen background image i.e. if you are not going to use any background image for the app, then this color is going to be the main color of the app.
 
Background color is the main color of your app. you can change it as per the relevance of the color in your app depending upon the type of business the app is going to represent. The following image shows how you can choose from a vast range of colors. You can also set the Hex code of the color if you know one.

Branding

Branding is giving a logo to your app. It also represents your company logo. You can add banner image here. Here I am using the logo of our website i.e. Kumar Janglu logo. Choose your logo that is relevant to your business.

And now comes the last option available in the home screen tab, i.e. desktop home button text. This option allows users to get back to the home screen of the app easily when viewing on a desktop. Set the label as Home.
And with this, we completed the Homescreen tab. Now let’s go to the Navigation tab.
 
 

Navigation

The navigation tab under design menu provides some customization on color for an icon, menu text, menu background, home screen shortcuts etc.. Here you can also turn off or on the Button Text and Button Icon.

Under this tab, you can change UI bar text color, main text color, background color. You can change the font, its weight. Different backgrounds like Global screen background and Header background can also be changed under this tab.
Basically, the design menu as the name suggests is all about the customization of the look of different components of the app, its home screen, navigation, and overall user interface. The credit will go to you if you build a great customized good looking app for your business that truly represents your business. As has been said by someone:
 
“If you can’t make it good, simply make it look good”
 
 
In the next part of this tutorial, we will see the details of the Build menu where we will be working on how the app will interact with the user. In this menu, we can allow the app to take the user through a walkthrough at the beginning of the app, ask users to log in or create an account and other interactive features.

I hope you enjoyed this part. We’ll come back with its second and last part soon.
