    How to show App in Salesforce1 Mobile App?
    For example, we have many apps which are being present on the right-hand corner of Salesforce such as Sales, Marketing, Community etc. Then how can we show these apps in Salesforce1?
    As we have a requirement such as to show app which has only defined tabs to be visible in Salesforce1.
    How to show tab in mobile?
    Any kind of help would be much appreciated.

    Hi Prakhar,

    The concept of the apps is bit different on salesforce1 as compared to salesforce classic.

    Basically on salesforce1 you can add tabs and that tab will have the visualforce page which will be salesforce1 enabled.

    Through different tabs you can view your app and VF pages.

    If you want to see an "app" in mobile you will need to add it into Navigation Menu. Go to Mobile Administration --> Mobile Navigation.

    For salesforce1 there is concept of Flexipage introduced. The flexipage allows to view different list views in only one page.

    I hope it helps.

    Hi Prakhar,

    I tried this in my developer org and what I found is: In the left hand side section in lightning experience consists of tabs , not apps. So, for accessing apps, you have to click on the App Launcher, then you can see you apps. On clicking on any of app, will show all the tabs included in that app.

    Hii Surbhi,

    I think you might have misread my question.

    Actually what I was looking for to show my custom app in Salesforce1, I know that is visible in Lightning experience in App Launcher on the right hand side of the screen.

    Hope that makes it clear what is my requirement.

    Hii Abhinav,

    I have tried the solution of Flexipages in my org but was not able to show the custom app which will be having the tabs of different objects. Can you please explain a bit in reference of Flexipages that how can we show the app which consist of different tabs of objects.

    And is there any way that we can do it using a standard process. I know the process of creating Vf pages and then add it to the navigation menu. But the problem is, then we will not be able to show the tabs for different objects in that Vf page. It will then be displaying the data in table format for the different objects which doesn't looks quite user friendly in case of more than 3-4 objects. And also adding of new records in the objects that are displayed.

    Looking for a more clear solution.

    You can create the tab and every tab will have its VF page.

    Make sure that the particular VF pages have the view permission in "Available for Salesforce mobile apps and Lightning Pages".

    Related to the Flexipages i will provide more information on that.

    I hope it helps.
