Choose device type dialog

The Mobile App Designer presents a workspace optimized for the device type chosen here.

Tip:

Although both types can be opened on any device, Oracle recommends that you consider carefully the use case for your app and design for one target device. If your app is for your users to get specific information quickly, a phone app is appropriate. If you intend for your users to spend more time interacting with your app, choose tablet.

3.3 Choose Your Data Source
