    Hello,

    We are looking at building a major app for our organization. 
    We are looking at building the app with AppBuilder and we want the app to be as modular as possible.
    Are there any example apps or example code on how to load content dynamically? 
    Mainly we would like the ability to update portions of the app without having to release a new version of the app every single time a feature is added.

    Example would be, we would like to add an item to a list view, then the link the list view would go to a section of the app.

    Do we just load content in a section of the app by creating a new 'section' and loading our content in there?
    Maybe load content from a webserver such as a page or interactive we control as a "webpage" and just load the page that way?

    I hope this give a bit of information about what we are trying to accomplish.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Carlos,

    The first approach that comes to my mind is to open external pages from your app located on a server which you can modify whenever you want. You can achieve that using the InAppBrowser plugin we have already integrated to AppBuilder.
    Another approach is to use ajax requests to your server via the mobile app and change the data it represents regarding the received server response.
    However, if you want to release a feature that uses a native API you will have to update your app package.
    Thanks.
