How will my app look like?
Your app will work as a full-screen browser. All the changes you have done on your website will be applied to your iOS app immediately. Users will navigate your web app exactly as your web app on iOS Safari Browser without the browser interface. Please take a look at our example apps.
Do I need any coding skills?
No. WebViewGold is a 100%-ready app template, and the setup of your app works without any understanding of coding. Just insert your website address, and you are done. Documentation, free updates, and support are included.
Will Google approve this app for the Apple App Store?

However, make sure that your app content does not contradict the legal requirements of the Apple App Store. If Apple rejects your app, we can offer you a full refund of the WebViewGold license (by claiming within 14 days after purchase).
What do I need, what are the requirements?
WebViewGold is a 100% ready full app template.

Can you create an individual demo app for me?
Unfortunately, we cannot build custom apps as a demo. But your app will look and work like your web app in Safari (iOS). If this is not the case, you get a 100% refund of your money paid for the WebViewGold license (by claiming within 14 days after purchase). We want you to see us as a partner you can always rely on – even in the unlikely case of trouble with the Apple App Store Review Team. Please check out the example apps.
Will my app work offline?
If you provide a local HTML folder, yes. If your web content is hosted on a website, your app will display a beautiful Offline screen with a “Try again” button instead. Moreover, WebViewGold offers a fallback mode that uses an HTML folder if the user is offline, and uses a remote URL if the user is online.
