How can multiple people work on the same app

February 1, 2021

There is no easy way for multiple people to work on the same app. However, this is a common question so this article will outline two possibilities: 

Option 1: Share log in credentials for a single Afterpattern account

This is the easiest way to work on the same app with others. But note, you can't work on the app at the same time (i.e. 2+ people can't work in the app builder for the same app at the same time).

Option 2: Use an App Community to share the app

An "App Community" is a place where you can publish your app; other community members can create a duplicate of the app. The workflow for this option mirrors what most software developers do: 

  1. You make an app, activate it, and publish it to the App Community (publish early and often; you don't need to wait for the app to be complete);
  2. Other community members can build off your work by (a) duplicating the app; (b) adding their own edits; and then (c) publishing their version back up to the community.
  3. You duplicate their version and the cycle repeats.
