ⓘ Note
  • You can upload JPG and PNG images up to 10MB in size.
  • Dropsource automatically scales your uploaded images to fit different screen sizes. For optimal image quality across all devices, you should upload custom images that are four times larger than the intended use. For example, if you are adding a 100 x 100 image, upload a 400 x 400 asset.
  • Your files are displayed by upload date.
  • You can’t rename a file once it’s uploaded, so it’s best to use a short, descriptive file name.
  • Images for icons in your app should be PNG files of a single color with a transparent background.

On iOS you can play remote video and audio within your app functionality.

Loading Images Dynamically

To load an image into your app dynamically from the web, use the Display Image from URL Action.
