Giving Consumers Color and Text Size Configuration Options

Blog

This new app sample was inspired by someone who posted a Forum Idea regarding PowerApp Themes. We really enjoy reading all the forum ideas, and I refer to those who post ideas as our enthusiastic “innovators”. This particular innovator came up with the idea that we should expose our “Themes” (see screen shot below) to the consumer of the app (aka the person running the app), and not only to the designer (or app maker). What an awesome idea! It really shows that they appreciate Empathic Design. Empathic Design is a process that one of my past managers (Karuana Gatimu) has instilled in me. It is a user-centered design approach that pays attention to the user’s feelings toward a product. As I thought about this further, I realized that this could also be even more relevant in mobile app design because factors around mobility can affect the way we format the screen; low light, screen glare, etc. depending on where the person is when they are running the app. It also could apply to accessibility, especially for people like me who always wants to make the font size bigger! So, will all those good reasons in mind, I decided to see if I could create my own configurable theme, using the features and formulas that are already in PowerApps today. I love what I ended up with, and I hope you will too! (Please let me know if you expand upon this idea for your own PowerApps in the comment area below.)
