This page is meant to be a reference page for responsive design layout patterns with Power Apps canvas apps.

2021-01-07: The last 2 layout patterns will be added very soon!

In November 2020, Microsoft released new Power Apps features to be able to make responsive canvas apps more easy:

  • Responsive previewer
  • Horizon container
  • Vertical container

There are already several responsive designs layout patterns defined by responsive design specialists. This reference page contains per layout pattern a link to a page containing more detailed information on how to achieve that specific layout pattern with canvas apps.

I am experienced with Power Apps canvas apps but no responsive design specialist. If you have any feedback related to this reference page or the layout pattern pages, please let me know using the form at the bottom of this page.
