Meet the New Glide Apps

Glide Pages is now Glide Apps

As of March 2023, our flagship product, previously referred to as Glide Pages, is now called Apps, becoming our officially supported and recommended product. Legacy apps will now be called Classic Apps, and will only be available to users who signed up before March 20th, 2023.


Glide Pages launched late 2021 as a large-screen companion to Glide Apps. What we initially meant as two complementary products came into conflict as we noticed users struggle to choose one over the other. A year later, we decided to evolve Glide toward one unified solution for building beautiful, powerful, adaptive apps that work across any device or screen size.

Adaptive Apps

Our vision for the future of software interfaces is adaptive apps: custom software that works great on all screens and platforms. Here are some of the adaptive features you'll find in Apps that support that vision:

  • Screen transitions

  • Adaptive components

  • Slide ins and overlays that adapt to their form factor

Differences between Apps and Classic Apps

Glide's latest most powerful features are exclusively available in Apps:

  • Big Tables: scale your data up to 10M rows.

  • Actions: build custom workflows that automate your business tasks.

  • Integrations: connect to your favorite tools to build powerful workflows.

Missing Components

Most components are now available in Apps. The only components that we don’t plan to bring to Apps are:

  • Payment button

  • Stopwatch

  • Link relation

  • CSS in Rich Text

Migrating from Classic Apps to Apps

To migrate from a Classic App to an App, we recommend creating a new app from your existing data. Check out our instructions about creating new apps from existing data in our Duplicating Apps guide.
