I have been fighting with a solution for the past couple of days and thought that maybe what I am expecting cannot be achieved. I have a Modern Team site where I have a list that I want to create a custom form using the customize with powerapps option. I would like to create a link on the left hand navigation that points directly to the form and is accessible via the desktop browser and the sharepoint mobile app. I create the custom form and use the copy link option to get the link. I update the link in the left navigation and can access via the desktop browser. However, I receive an error "something went wrong" when accessing via mobile. Are custom forms not supported on the Sharepoint mobile app?

Currently they are not supported direct to the list: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Power-Apps-Ideas/Support-customized-Sharepoint-list-forms-on-Sha...

However you can create stand alone Power App using the list as the data source that can work on both.

Thats what I thought. Unfortunately, the standalone PowerApp is going to be a pain in the rear. I would have to create one for the phone view and one for the desktop view unless I wanted to spend all of the time required to make it responsive...which would be a huge pain.

Believe me I know your pain. I've wanted to do the same many times and had to create Mobile and Desktop versions of Apps. Honestly, I just create a mobile version and tell people they have to deal with the ugly mobile formatting lol.

You can always utilize the PowerApps Web Part which you can embed into a page to help with formatting on desktop by putting stuff around it, but again, still requires a custom app, and that app will populate into people's powerapps app list etc. I hope they fix it cause the App (form) sprawl can get out of hand over time.
