How to Create the Blur Effect

Last Updated: May 15, 2018 01:59PM PDT

We offer a background image blur effect that helps you create great-looking applications in less time than ever before.

Starting with just one image, you can now toggle the blur effect on globally or on a feature-by-feature basis to complete graphics for your entire app. If you want to spice up some features with a bit of added color, try adding the blur effect to images from our included gallery.

Works On:

  • iOS apps published September 1, 2015 & later
  • Android apps published September 15, 2015 & later

  • Navigate to Create and select Design. Click Edit next to Home Screen Background. 
  • Or, choose to navigate to the Build Step and select the feature you want to edit. In this case, click Custom Design > More Options > Screen Background.

  • The blur effect does not apply to carousel images.
  • For Web apps, the blur effect's success depends on the browser. Refer to this article for more details.
