Frequently asked questions about general topics

Meet the new Glide Apps

Glide Pages are now Glide Apps. Please refer to this article for up-to-date information, as some of this documentation is outdated.

If my project gets a lot of traffic, will Glide be able to handle it?

Yes. Glide scales with your app, so there is no difference if a hundred, a thousand, or a million people open your project at the same time. All of them will be able to access it.

Can Glide make web apps, in addition to mobile apps?

Glide Apps and Pages automatically work on any device; mobile tablet, laptop, desktop, television, or any device with an up-to-date web browser. However, when viewed on a large screen—your laptop, for example—your project maintains a mobile layout, although it works nonetheless.

How does Glide count the number of users of my project?

The number of users displayed on your dashboard is the number of unique devices that have visited your project. If one person opens your project on their laptop, and on their phone, that would count as 2 users in this context, regardless of whether they log in and use your project.

Do you support right to left (RTL) languages?

Partially - yes. Glide will render many different parts of a project with RTL text. However, not all parts of the UI support this. We hope to offer full RTL support in the future.

Can I embed my Glide app as an iframe, within another website?

Yes, our Business plan allows iframe embedding. Please upgrade to Business and submit a support request to enable iframe embedding for your app.

Can I make a dating app with Glide?

Glide is intended for creating custom business apps, mostly for internal use. It is not designed for large-scale public apps, like social media or dating. We strongly encourage you to try other platforms for large-scale public apps.

Can I make money with Glide?

Yes. The easiest way to make money with Glide is to become a Glide Expert and charge businesses to help them create apps. You can earn a full-time living as a Glide Expert.

Is Glide GDPR compliant?

Yes. You can learn more here.

Where are Glide's servers located?

Our servers are located in the United States. We use Google Cloud Platform as our main cloud.

Can I make a custom collection?

Yes, as long as you are using Glide Pages, you can use the Custom Collection component. This is not yet available in Glide Apps.
