Glide apps are made from Google sheets. So what on earth is a template?
From Google sheet
Option 1 - create your own app from scratch. The working assumption here is that the available templates didn’t meet your specific app requirements. So you did everything from scratch on a google sheet. The next step in the process is bringing that google sheet to life as a mobile app. This is where Glide comes to the rescue. You do this by selecting “from google sheet”. To go live, tap share.
Option 2- select any paid/free ready made template, make changes, and go live. This means you don’t have to in theory open a google sheet and start from scratch. Others have already done the ground work for you. Hence, template. You open the template on your dashboard, load the google sheet from which the app was made, and off you go !
