Note: shared web apps are supported on mobile devices. Mobile users can view shared web apps in real-time.

Appending User Information in Web App URL (Advanced)

When adding a web app to your content library, you'll notice a checkbox setting to "Append user information in URL." 

This option allows you to append user info from our platform as part of the iframe query string to render the inserted web app within. 

This is a useful way for developers to process any server code that is specific to the user viewing their web app.
