What are Pages on Apptile?
Pages refer to the individual screens or pages within apps built on Apptile that serve a specific function or display specific information.
In the Apptile platform, Pages can be accessed through the navigation menu on the left panel. For instance, an e-commerce app may have pages like homepage, product display page, cart page, wish list page, etc. for browsing products, adding items to a shopping cart, and completing a purchase.
Each page is designed to serve a specific purpose and may contain different user
interface elements, such as buttons, menus, forms, images, and text. Collectively, Apptile pages create the overall user experience within the app and enable users to interact with the app's functionality and content.
Different types of Pages
The main view (also known as the home screen or landing page) is the first screen that users see when they launch your app. It typically contains a navigation menu, search bar, and featured or popular content that you want to highlight. Here, you can leverage our extensive range of pre-built templates or customise your app design to make your app’s main view visually appealing and easy to navigate that encourages users to explore the app further.
A collection page displays a group of related items or content. It is typically used to showcase a set of products, photos, or other types of content that share a common theme or category. It displays items in a grid or list format, with each item including an image or thumbnail, title, and other relevant information. Users can typically scroll through the collection view to browse through the items and select those that they are interested in.
Collection pages can be useful in organising and displaying content within a mobile app, allowing users to quickly and easily browse through related items and discover new content.
Customise your collection menu with banners to create an aesthetically dynamic experience.
We recommend labelling your collection menu as ‘Shop All’ or ‘Collections’ to clearly explain where the menu item will navigate the user.
Cart page provides users with a clear overview of the items a user has selected for purchase in their shopping cart. It provides users with a quick and easy way to manage the items they have added to their cart before proceeding to checkout. Typically, the cart page displays the name, image, quantity, price, estimated shipping time and total cost of each item in the cart.
The wishlist page allows users to save products they are interested in for future reference and create a list of items they may want to buy later or keep track of items they like.
Account page helps users to manage their purchases and account information in one central location. It allows your users to manage their account information and preferences. It typically includes features such as viewing and editing user profile information, managing billing and shipping information, and tracking order history.
The rewards and favourite options will only appear within the account view if you have the loyalty and/or wishlist integration enabled.
The orders page displays a user's order history, including details such as the order date, order status, and order total. It allows users to track the status of their orders and review their purchase history.
The notifications page is where you can provide users with timely and relevant information, keeping them engaged with the app and informed about their activity. It can include notifications for various activities such as new messages, completed orders, shipping updates, or other account-related activities.
The product page is typically a virtual storefront for a specific product that helps users learn more about it before making a purchase. It mainly includes product images, descriptions, features, specifications, pricing, reviews, and other relevant information that can help users make informed decisions about purchasing the product. The product page may also provide options for users to add the product to their cart, wishlist, or favorites, as well as to share or recommend the product to others.

It’s important to note that there are a few other ways to access pages as well. One way is using the preview button on the top right.
