Publish as a Web App (PRO)
How to publish your project to the Internet as a Web App
Publishing as a Web App is currently the fastest way to publish your Thunkable app. This means that you can get user feedback in minutes instead of hours or days. One major advantage to publishing on the internet is that you don't need to pay additional fees to an app market place.
The "Publish as a Web App" component is a feature just for Thunkable creators with active PRO subscriptions. To upgrade your subscription please visit your membership page. If you cancel your PRO membership, your app will be unpublished once your PRO membership expires.

Mobile Web App

Mobile web apps are best experienced by opening the link directly on your phone. To make your mobile app feel more like a native app you can add it to the home screen directly from your mobile web browser.
If you preview a mobile web app on a desktop or laptop computer you will see a phone frame around the app. This is to give you a rough idea of its final proportions, but ultimately this will vary from device to device depending on factors such as screen size, aspect ratio, and pixel density.
To get an app that can respond to devices of any size, consider publishing as a Responsive Web App.

Responsive Web App

Publishing your app as a responsive web app means that it will scale according to the size of the device that it is being opened on.
If your app in designed only to be run on phones, consider publishing as a Mobile Web App.

Demo

Here's a 3 minute overview of how "Publish as a Web App" works.

    unpublish your app by clicking on Disable published link text
๐ŸŽ‰ Congratulations - your Thunkable project is now live on the internet a published web app.

Updating your App

Each time you press publish itโ€™s similar to creating a new release of your app in one of stores. This means you can make changes and updates to your without worrying about users seeing a half-finished new feature that youโ€™re still working on.
When youโ€™re ready to release a new version, choose โ€œPublish as a Web Appโ€ then click the blue โ€œPublish current versionโ€ to update your app. The URL will remain the same, but the project that it links to will be updated.

Embed your app in a webpage

If you host a webpage, you can embed your Thunkable web app in an iframe using the syntax
<iframe src="https://thunkable.site/w/K0XDxMqwl" title="Chop Down the Tree Thunkable App" height = 1000 width = 500></iframe>
