Finalise your app

The widgets that you have just added are for your home screen template. Reptile has the option for you to have three levels of templates when you create more complicated apps.

For this release ignore the issue and section templates. They will not work in the Alpha release app.

The next phase to move onto is the Designer tab.

It currently shows three screens - home, settings and search. In this section you can currently only do two things:

1. Add a logo to appear on the top of your home template

2. Choose the primary and secondary colours for your buttons

Logo - drag and drop a jpg or png of your logo. If your logo is square or tall you should make a version which suits the layout of the screen better. Like this:

I drag the logo onto the design pallet on the right of the screen and it confirms it has been uploaded:

Please note the phone app image on the main screen will not show the logo at this stage.

I can then choose my Primary and Secondary button colours from the colour picker options below.

  

For testing purposes I have made this bold colours. The app image does show how these will look on my buttons. 

Press Save before going any further! You can add the same colours to the settings and search screens and save them as well. Now all of the screens which are currently available are branded to your colours.

Once each screen design choice has been saved you can move onto the Finalise section.
