Open the app’s link and your browser will prompt you to add the app to your homescreen. Your app will automatically update with new features and information. On iOS, make sure to open the link in Safari.
You can read about free app limits in our documentation.
It depends on what changes you make.
Changes that are added within the app sync back up to your sheet in seconds. Manual changes to the data in your sheet—when a person edits values in cells, adds or removes rows, etc.—are synced to apps within three minutes, although sometimes these changes will happen immediately. Changes to the layout of your apps—changing components, themes, or other settings—can take up to 10 minutes to appear in existing apps, but should be available immediately for new users. Changes based on formulas like NOW or TODAY do not cause your app to update.

We're sorry, but we cannot help you build your app. We spend most of our time improving Glide itself, and writing documentation and creating videos to help you learn to use Glide, but we do not have time to help you one-on-one with your app.
Yes. Create a Glide Team and invite anyone you'd like to edit apps together.
Glide apps are shared as simple links rather than through the App Store.
The number on your dashboard is the number of unique devices that accessed your app in the last 30 days. This number is usually more than the number of users who actually signed into your app, so you may find you have fewer sign-ins.
For private apps on our Basic or Pro plans, this is a much more precise number—the number of unique users, identified by email address, that have used your app in the last 30 days.
We're working on that! Please tell us which sources you're interested in.
Our original builder grew organically as we added and enhanced the various aspects and features of Glide. This created a bit of a patchwork design, as we tried to incorporate new settings, new components and new features to the existing interface. When we introduced compound actions and started to think about our future plans around tablet and fullscreen views, we realized that we needed to step back and take a fresh look at the overall design of the builder.
After months of effort by our design team, our developers, and testers, we feel we have come up with a robust design that we will be able to build on as we incorporate some of the new ideas and features we have plans for.
All the same functionality is still there, but it has been rearranged in a way that will improve your workflow and leave room for the exciting new functionality to come. Here is an overview video of our new builder. More to come!
No, you upgrade apps individually—create as many Personal apps as you'd like, and upgrade just the apps that need more features or capacity.
A public app can be used by anyone in the world—anyone who visits your app can use the app without signing in, or they can sign in with any email address, depending on your app's security setting. These apps can have unlimited users.
A private app limits access by password or email address. Its price depends on the number of users that log in and use the app each month.
We count the active users for your private app, based on the unique email address they sign in with.
We do not count the number of emails in your allow list—you are charged for actual users, not potential users.
We do not count the number of devices used. If the same user uses the app on desktop, tablet, and a phone, this is still one user.
Your app will downgrade to Personal, and your account will be credited for unused time.
You can simply downgrade the first app, and upgrade the second app. This will issue you a credit for unused time, so it's equivalent to a transfer.
A sheet edit happens whenever your Google Sheet is changed by a person, either by editing it in Google Sheets, or by doing something in your app that edits your Google Sheet. Whenever this happens, Glide reloads your entire Google Sheet to show the latest info in your app.
You can use the Buy Button component to sell things within your app. The transaction fee is the fee that Glide keeps on in-app transactions. This fee does not include Stripe's processing fee.
