With the launch of the GoCanvas Mobile Builder, there are now two distinct ways to create and manage your Apps, so you may be wondering about the differences between the Mobile Builder and our Advanced App Builder.
The Mobile Builder was designed to be a mobile-only experience, but there may be instances where someone currently using this builder may want to change to using the Advanced App Builder.
