Sorry for the lame title...

Say i'm a lone developer without a business e-mail... can I even develop PowerApps? If so, how? (If I get an O365 subscription, can I publish that way?) What manages the backend data connections? Is it more like Sharepoint or PowerBI?

Thanks,
Pieter

I'm sure you can get a PowerApps account for free.

Not much more than that, though. smirk.gif

My understanding is that PowerApps can connect to a huge variety of data sources.

So without a corporate e-mail (so corp job to tie it to), you're basically screwed. I guess my only option is to buy a .com and get an e-mail that way. Hmm....

So far as I know, that's true, but I've never investigated PAs very much...

You don't need your own domain. You'll get a yourname.onmicrosoft.com domain automatically with a Office 365 Business subscription.

Oh, so if I get a O365 Business subscription, I can build PowerApps?

Thanks!

Yes, you can. However, some features, such as the Common Data Service or SharePoint Services, are not available in the lower tier subscriptions and require an additional PowerApps-Plan or higher tier Office 365 subscription.

To get started and toy around with PowerApps, the PowerApps Community Plan might be a sensible option.

Look at the PowerApps Licensing Page to get the full picture.

[Edit/PS]: The PowerApps pricing page is a better resource for a comprehensible overview over the available features in the different plans.

The super annoying part is that I need a corporate e-mail account for most of this stuff... =(

I don't understand. Annoying in which way? If you have an Office 365 Business Subscription you automatically get your corporate email account, don't you?
