Configuring the Music building block


There are several aspects of your Music block that can be changed in this screen; the name of the block, the icon (or image) that will be used in the app menu, and the top image for the "Music" screen. You can also choose whether you'd like the users to be able to share the events via twitter, Facebook, or email.

Click on the icon if you want to change the image used in the app's menu.

  • Edit provides a wide range of image editing options for you to manipulate your icon image.

  • Replace allows you to choose from a wide range of AppMachine icons or upload your own.

  • Remove removes the icon so that only text is used (in this case Music) is presented in your app's menu.

Should the need arise to keep the users of your published app from using this portion of the app, then you can always make use of the ON/OFF toggle in the top right of the settings section.

Toggle selector to OFF to keep users from seeing the Music block. Now you can continue developing your app without worrying about users coming upon areas that you haven't finished developing as of yet. Once you are satisfied with your progress, toggle the selector back to ON to publish this portion of your app.
