Once you have synced your app with your project, every change you make to your project will be reflected in your app. Your app also lets you preview all your app projects from the comfort of your mobile device.

Download the Thunkable app(s)

The Thunkable app allows you to live test your app on your phone as you build it. Not even hard core developers have this super power. You can also preview all your app projects from the comfort of your mobile device.

If you don't have an iOS or Android device, you can also set up an emulator on your computer that will mimic what you would see on an actual device

Live Test

After you have downloaded and logged into your Thunkable Live Android or iOS app on your phone, please select Live Test on the Thunkable web platform to sync your project with your app. Any changes that you make to your project should be reflected in your app. Some changes that you make may crash the app itself so it may be helpful to exit out of and re-open the app.

Live Preview

For the first time, you can also now live preview all your app projects from the comfort of your mobile device. Simply login and you should see a list of all your projects on your Thunkable Live app.
