Do you own a blog or a website and want to turn it into a fully functional Android app? Having an Android app is a plus point as it stays close to the users and they can access your website anytime with just a single tap!
So if you have the same intentions, then this tutorial is just for you. You will learn how to convert a website into an Android app with just a few lines of code using WebViews concept.
A WebView is basically a container which renders a predefined or user-defined web address. Hybrid apps mostly work on the concepts of WebViews which enable web developers to reuse the website code and target multiple platforms at once. WebViews runs the web technologies on your device and also write the code in those languages to leverage the native components like camera, sensors, etc.
In this tutorial (link above), we will create a simple web-based app for our blog using the WebView control and also how you can make it more usable by enabling zoom, navigation, and safe browsing.
