Widgets give your app functionality, such as print and overview map. Each theme has its own preconfigured set of widgets and you can add additional ones.

5. Configure attributes

Attributes allow you to customize your app banner with a logo, title, hyperlinks and so on.

6. Preview and launch

Preview the responsive app with popular device screen sizes. When ready, save and launch.
