Create a mobile app from a Google Sheet in 5 minutes, for free. Beautiful apps, powered by data, easy to customize & share using Glide Apps.
Have you heard of Glide Apps? It\’s an amazing app creator that requires no code and allows you to create an app in minutes from a Google sheet! Yep, you heard that right, NO code. And its FREE! I\’ve got your attention now don\’t I?
Now the BEST Part 👇
After you\’ve created the app you can share a link with your teachers or students and when they open it on their phone they have the option to save it to their home screen which will create a tile on their phone and like magic🔮 they now have access to your app filled with great information or resources 📲.

Pretty cool huh?!?! Ready to make your own?
Simply click on this link and sign in with your Google account. It will connect your Google drive to the site and prompt you to open up an existing Google sheet. If you have not created one yet, you can create a new sheet and enter in the info that you would like in your app. Then link to that new sheet. For this example I chose 4 different columns of information:
- Resource Link
The app will connect to the data you have entered and do its best to place the information into the app the way it thinks you would like it to appear. You can also edit the view of the app a bit.
To learn more about setting up the app, check out Glide\’s tutorials channel.
Ideas for implementation:
- Create a conference schedule
- A mobile study guide
- List of resources for teachers and/or students
- Device check out forms
