In case you want to make an app memorable I suggest you to take advantage of App Style SeattleCloud provides with. It is an easy way to modify navigation bar or the accent colours to make your application for iOS or Android unique. To apply these changes please access the Application Dashboard -> App Style section.

You will notice that the App Style section for Android and iOS are different and have different ways pf customization.

  • iOS

Select the color you want/need for each section and get an original and impressive theme inside your application.

To see these changes you can use either the simulator provided on the website or the previewer application. If you choose to review the application using the previewer you will have to sync each time you make a change. 

1. Base Theme (Light/Dark) - determines all base app color(such as window background, content text, default primary and accent color)
