Supported Mobile Devices and Browsers

AppSheet apps run on iOS and Android devices in a variety of device form factors, and on mobile or desktop browsers.

 

iOS

We require iOS version 9.0 or higher. We recommend iOS version 10.0. Earlier versions of iOS can cause subtle bugs or performance problems. 

 

Android

We require Android version 4.4.4 or higher. We recommend Android version 5.0 or higher. Earlier versions of Android can cause subtle bugs or performance problems.

The memory required depends on:

  • The amount of data downloaded to the device. This depends on the number of tables and the number of rows and columns in each table.
  • The complexity of the app. This depends on the number of tables, views, expressions, etc.
  • The device features used by the app. The camera and scanner add significantly to the RAM required. The higher the camera image resolution, the more memory required.

If you are purchasing an Android device for use with AppSheet, we recommend choosing Android 6.0 or greater with at least 2GB of RAM. More memory may be required depending on the number and resolution of photos you capture. We recommend testing your app thoroughly on the device before committing to it. Android performance can vary significantly between devices with seemingly similar specs.

 

Mobile or desktop browser

While we primarily focus on mobile devices, AppSheet apps also run in a web browser, often within an iframe. In fact, on unsupported mobile platforms like Windows Phone, we recommend running within a browser.

Most functionality is supported in a browser except for:

  • Bar code scanning
  • Offline image and document caching
  • Offline app launch 
  • Some upcoming functionality (like push notifications).

To run the app fullscreen in a browser, use the URL: https://www.appsheet.com/start/{app-id} .

To run the app within an iframe, read this article.

We recommend using a modern browser. AppSheet works best on Chrome. AppSheet does not work on Internet Explorer versions lower than V10.0.
