Today, we’re thrilled to announce Web Previews in Appflow, the easiest way to share what you’re working on with coworkers, stakeholders, and more.

Unfamiliar with Appflow? It’s a mobile DevOps solution by Ionic that makes it easy to continuously build, deploy, and update mobile app experiences across iOS, Android, and the web. With Appflow, you can fully automate your team’s app development workflow, and go from idea to production in less time.

New to Ionic or Appflow? Try our step-by-step app wizard to build your first app and generate a web preview in minutes.

Web Previews represent the next step in our belief in the web first development strategy, and we’re especially excited for what this feature enables for teams who want a quick and easy way to share pre-production versions of their app, without the overhead and complexity of managing TestFlight, iOS enterprise certs, or any of the more complicated methods of showing off what you’ve built.

Web Previews: Faster feedback loops

Much of the app development process, especially for mobile apps, involves getting the design just right along with fine tuning the overall user experience. To do so effectively, you have to get the app into your user’s hands – screenshots and mockups don’t cut it.

Traditionally, developers would accomplish this via testing and sharing apps like TestFlight, or by generating native app binaries and distributing them via iOS enterprise certs. When it comes to iterating quickly, such as tweaking a design change or fixing bugs, it’s annoying to get slowed down by native builds.

Fortunately, when you combine Ionic Framework’s UI components and Capacitor’s cross-platform APIs, you can develop and test 99% of your app in the browser. Also known as the web first approach, you create the app locally then deploy to mobile devices and app stores when ready.

Today, we’re taking that a step further – sharing your app with your team is now a URL click away:
