Now the exciting stuff starts to happen! In the Finalise tab you will see the App Prototype section 

Use the links to find the Android or iOS Reptile App and download it. Then enter your unique PIN code into the App and load content 

Your app will load you content, the home template and all the screens, including the colour setting you applied.

Congratulations - you are at the end of the process. Now that you have an overview you can go back and start to refine things and work on your real app designs.

Troubleshooting

If you generated a PIN code but it failed to load any content into your app these are the most common mistakes:

  1. You did not publish your content - go back to adding content and make sure all your content has a green published light
  2. You did not publish your app project - follow the same tutorial - you need to publish the app project. So stage one is to publish individual pieces of content, stage 2 is to publish the whole project. 

  3. You did not add any widgets to your Home Template. Follow 'Designing your app' Tutorial. Click Edit on the widgets panel. You should see the widgets you applied to your Template. If there are none perhaps you did not save them? Just add them again and press Save.
  4. You did not publish your saved Home Template. Under Options Publish should be greyed out. If not your template has not been published. Just publish it.

Now check your Pin app again (pull down to refresh or 'Check Content'). If all these four steps have been followed you should see content in your app.
