Apps on Shopify Mobile

Create powerful mobile experiences

You can bring the same apps your merchants use from the Shopify admin to Shopify Mobile. Using the same APIs as on desktop, your apps can reach thousands of merchants working from their smartphones, whether on mobile web or our native app.

The Embedded App SDK allows you to embed your app directly inside of the Shopify admin and our mobile app, as well as to access and customize many native GUI features of both. This means you can use the same SDK and app to deliver experiences to merchants no matter which device they're using.

Use Shopify Polaris to build rich and responsive experiences. Polaris is also designed to work directly with the Embedded App SDK; learn more in the Polaris Embedded app section.

All partners can access apps inside Shopify Mobile using Development stores.
