Before you download, we recommend first adding an App Icon and Name to your app

Download limits

Due to special circumstances from Apple, there is a limit of one downloaded app per phone on iOS. Download wait times will also be a bit longer.




Download app limit

No limit

One app per phone

Download time

Up to a few minutes

Download and install Android app

Select Download Android app

To download your Android app, select Download Android App and an .apk file will be generated on your desktop

Keep your .apk file

If you are using the latest version of Chrome you might see a notification that your app "is not commonly downloaded and may be dangerous". While some .apk files can potentially contain malicious software you are downloading an app that you have created yourself so there is no danger here. You can click on the "More Options" menu and choose the "Keep" option as highlighted below to complete your download.

To install, allow apps from Unknown sources

Anyone installing your app directly, instead of from the Play Store, will need to change the setting on their phone to allow installation of apps from Unknown sources

Download and install iOS app

Select Download iOS app and enter your email address

You will receive an email when your app is ready to download. This usually takes 15-20 minutes but can take up to an hour

The link to download the app is only intended for your own use and will expire after 24 hours

To install, trust Thunkable on your device

On your first time downloading apps for iOS, you will need to open your Settings app, navigate to General and Device Management and then Trust "Rappidly Inc" (the business name of Thunkable)
