Hello, I'm a junior web designer who works for a small web developing studio. One of our customers asked us an app for his website, a simple internal seach engine. Pretty useless, but we have to do it. The searh engine is already done, we just need an app for mobiles. A friend told me about Titanium, so here I am. My question is: can I publish an app that works only with a WebView, displaying a local html (+css +js) file which includes the search form and then show another WebView, remote, that just display the result of the request as the normal website does? I've heard something about you can't publish apps that look like browsers, and this one is pretty a browser.. Any advice? Thank you!
yes its absolutely alright to develop the app which only have web-views in it. Well i have seen many apps which load all of its UI from the web-view.
But when it comes to the app store for apple its very tough to answer. I am sure that they not going to approve a single page app... But you can add some extra features in the app in order to publish your main functionality in the app.
AFAIK, you can do this with Appcelerator.
There is also another project named "PhoneGap" which just shows the webviews and the apps made with it accepted everyday.
Titanium is good with handling webViews. You can use it.
