Apps are modular apps that live on top of your Airtable bases. From map and chart which introduce new ways to visualize your work, to Google Cloud Vision, translate, and send SMS, which help put it into action, apps not only enhance your existing Airtable use cases, but also introduce completely new ways of building your own app workflows.
Why is an app I have installed paused?
For larger bases, when may pause certain apps if they could slow down the base during loading. You can still resume using them if you click the ‘Load app’ button on each app, or the ‘Load all apps’ banner at the top of the Apps dashboard.
Can I create a custom app?
With the Blocks SDK, you can use React to create your own real-time, interactive apps that live in Airtable. We host your code, so you don't have to worry about servers or setup. You can create your app in your own development environment and import your favorite npm packages.
The full API Reference and tutorial guides for the Blocks SDK can be found on our developers site. If you are looking for help with development, check out the Custom Apps section of our community forum.
How can I manage all of the apps on a base?
