Sure you love your MobileUp app and the way it helps you engage your mobile audience.
But do you ever wish the home screen could look a little different? Check out these options:
Our classic home screen style is on the left. You know it. You love it. But what if you could adjust the tile colors (center screen) or rotate images behind semi-transparent tiles (right screen)?
Those are interesting twists on our classic app design. But wait! There's more! What do you think about these:
These options feature rotating images on the top of the home screens and 2-column tile layouts instead of the classic 3-column. Icons are optional. Colors can be adjusted. Tiles that don't fit on the home screen are accessible by scrolling upward. (There's no “More” button.)
OK, so while we are throwing out new home screen design concepts, take a look at these:
In these examples, we keep the rotating images sequence on the top of the app home screen. But now, we are using images as backgrounds for our tiles and running labels either across colored bars (left) or the images themselves.
That's right! In this month's product update, all these designs are available to you. And the best part, you can make the updates yourself in your MobileUp administrator tools.
This is a powerful upgrade and marks a large advancement in our toolset's goal to keep your app as current and engaging as possible. Here's what you can do:

This is the standard design with tiles and icons that MobileUp apps have used since the platform was created. Adjust each label’s background, text color, and transparency. Edit a tile’s name as needed. The hero image is a fixed asset in this style but can be replaced.
This style has a vertical image positioned behind the tiles. Use one or a sequence of images. They can also be role-based. The “More” tile doesn’t exist in this design so tiles will cover more of the background image as they are added. Adjust each tile’s background color, text color, and transparency. Edit a tile’s name and icon as needed.
Upload your own image(s) for the top, which can be one or a series of rotating images. Adjust each text label’s color and transparency. Edit a tile's background color and transparency. Edit a tile’s name as needed. Users scroll up to see tiles below screen level.
Upload your own single image or rotating image sequence for the top. Adjust the text and icon colors as well as tile colors and transparencies. Edit a tile’s name as needed. Users scroll up to see tiles below screen level.
Upload your own single image or sequence of rotating images for the top of the home screen. You also upload images for each tile background. Each label has adjustable colors and transparency. Users scroll up to see tiles below screen level.
