Using Native WebApps you'll build an app that presents your mobile website through a web view. However, Native WebApps provides much more than a "website wrapper" as you'll build a stunning native app with advanced native functionality and features. You can add native navigation menus, push notifications from OneSignal and other push providers, and incorporate our premium native plugins to add functionality ranging from biometric authentication to In-App Purchases and much more. You'll also benefit from the Native WebApps build platform which has been supported and maintained since early 2014. As iOS and Android changes are released you can rebuild your app using the Native WebApps App Builder to maintain compatibility while avoiding the overhead that comes from maintaining your own code base.
We are continually impressed by the quality and functionality of apps created by our customers using Native Web Apps. If your website doesn't meet the requirements you have for your app consider a new web development framework that will enable you to add the required functionality. The costs of building and maintaining a web app are typically far less than a native app, and you will only have a single web app to maintain versus separate iOS and Android native apps. Also review our Native Plugins which provide a full native experience for many 3rd party services and device features. For instance using the Twilio Native Plugin will provide full-screen front and back camera video calling along with call interruption handling. And our native media player allows you to play audio with the device screen turned off and control playback via the native lock screen interface. Yes, you can build an app with Skype and Spotify capabilities using Native Web Apps!
