What you can do with AppStudio

Build using a platform

AppStudio for ArcGIS is a low-code platform for creating native apps. It allows you to quickly build apps for distribution in your organization or to publish to app stores. 

Start with a template

Create your app by configuring an out-of-the-box template with a user-friendly interface, no coding required.

Develop a custom app

If you are an experienced developer, you have full control over your code. This means you can build a completely custom app to fit your requirements.

Write once, deploy anywhere

Build a single app and deploy it to any platform–iOS, Android, Mac, Linux, or Windows—with the click of a button. 

Distribute apps how you want

Reduce app delivery friction and distribute your app the way you want by generating builds in the cloud or using AppStudio Player.

Powered by ArcGIS Runtime

AppStudio leverages the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Qt, giving you access to all the powerful mapping capabilities of the ArcGIS platform. 

How it works

1. Begin with an idea for a native app

In today's world, users access data through mobile devices. Do you think others would benefit from leveraging your data and maps via a native app?

2. Use AppStudio Desktop to build your app

Configure app templates, extend templates with custom code, or create new apps from scratch—you're in control.

3. Quickly test your apps

Use the built-in tools in AppStudio Desktop to preview your app and easily collaborate with stakeholders using AppStudio Player.

4. Distribute apps to your target audience

Deploy and manage apps within your organization using AppStudio Player, a mobile device management system, or the Apple and Google Play app stores.
