The Microsoft Power Platform received quite exciting announcements during Microsoft Build, from Power Pages joining the Power Platform family as its own standalone product to new features being added onto PowerApps that will make the app building experience more seamless, exciting, and faster.
Understanding Express Design
Express Design is a new way to quickly get started with PowerApps by instantly transforming your visual design into an app. With Express design, makers can quickly turn existing design artifacts—including paper forms, whiteboard sketches, or Figma files—directly into a working app. Express design currently supports design artifacts in the form of an image or a Figma design file.
Understanding the Image to App & Figma to App features?
Image to App
The app making journey typically involve a design phase to plan out what the app should look like. Whether the design is based on an existing paper form, a whiteboard drawing, or even an image of a legacy app, it can take a considerable amount of time to build the app from scratch. With the Image to app feature, you can now create an app from a visual design and connect it to data through a few simple steps in the guided interface. This feature makes it easy for makers of all skill levels to jumpstart the app development process
Figma to App
Designers can create designs in Figma using the Create Apps from Figma UI Kit, which provides supported components for Power Apps and includes detailed instructions for how to use the kit. Once the designs are created, simply provide the link to the Figma design file and Power Apps will generate a new canvas app based on those designs. The design frames are automatically converted into screens in Power Apps.
