Glide 2.0 – New Layouts, Actions, and Sound Effects

Glide is a great tool for quickly creating your own mobile apps from Google Sheets. I’ve been using it and recommending it for the last couple of years. In fact, I featured it in the last session of the Practical Ed Tech Virtual Summer Camp

Recently, Glide introduced version 2.0. The latest version of Glide introduced some new layout options including a layout optimized for tablet display and a new swipe layout. There’s also a new option to connect multiple steps within an application which reduces the number of screens a user has to clicks/ tap through to accomplish a task. But from my perspective the most interesting update in Glide 2.0 is support for audio. 

An overview of the new features in Glide is provided in this video

Applications for Education
One of the most common ways to use Glide is to create an app that houses review materials for students. Another common use is to create a directory app. You can use Glide to create a staff directory app that includes not only the basic contact information for staff members but also is a place where students and parents can find teachers’ websites and supply/ materials lists. You might also add teaching or course schedules to the directory app.
