Glide Pages are now called Glide Apps.
This change keeps us moving towards our 2023 goal of having a powerful, unified Glide platform.
As of today:
- Glide Pages are Glide Apps
- Glide Apps are Glide Classic Apps
- Only users who signed up before March 20, 2023 can build Classic Apps
Your existing Classic Apps will not be affected. They will simply be referred to by a new name. They will continue working, and you can continue building Classic Apps.
That said, starting today, we strongly recommend you build all future projects using Apps rather than Classic Apps.
Apps are fully optimized for mobile and desktop devices, maintain all the same core capabilities you love, and include powerful new functionality like Big Tables, Actions, and Integrations.
Classic Apps will not support these features.

I’ve been hoping the tiles on the Projects page for the software formerly known as Pages would get a makeover, and they did!
Can’t get more appropriate than that.
What is the difference between choosing Mobile and Large Screen when creating a new Apps?
Nothing. It’s just the starting view when you start building a project. You can still switch between either view when building your app, and the published app will automatically adapt between mobile and large screen depending on screen resolution.
This is a confusing choice. I think asking for it when starting a project is unnecessary. Especially for new Glide users who will struggle to choose.
Are you referring to the choice between Apps and Classic Apps?
If so, we agree – and that’s why we set today as the cut off date.
New Glide users won’t have access to create Classic Apps.
No, the choice between Mobile and Large Screen.
Gotcha. Thanks for the feedback.
We’re watching the data for the new user experience. We’ll keep refining it.
Since this choice is not affecting the building properties, it should not be there… If I would not know better… i would have a big problem starting the App
What’s going to happen to some of the gestures we love in the mobile app? Example: Swipe. Are they going to be migrated to the new Apps?
sorry for going off topic, can’t the card collection scroll horizontally like in the app?
Is there anyway to migrate a full Classic app over to the new cooler app?
Or will you have to build everything again?
Nooooooo, we need to have CSS!! Will there be a way to add custom css? So the apps can have that extra custom, premium enterprise feel to it.
Maybe a CSS component? No?
It will soon be able to do this, yes.
