What is WebViewGold?
Create your own apps for Android with just a few clicks and without any understanding of code. Use your mobile web app as the basis, and the WebViewGold app template wraps your URL content into a real, native Android app! No more coding, no more plugins needed, it just works.
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 Android app immediately. Users will navigate your web app exactly as your web app on Chrome for Android 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 Play Store?
Yes, WebViewGold comes with a Google Play Store approval guarantee. Take a look at our example apps. However, make sure that your app content does not contradict the legal requirements of the Google Play Store. If Google rejects your app, we can offer you a full refund of the WebViewGold license (by claiming within 14 days after purchase). Feel free to send all the details to email@example.com – we are 100% here to help you!
What do I need, what are the requirements?
WebViewGold is a 100% ready full app template. You need to have an existing web app or website that you want to convert into an app. Afterward, just download the WebViewGold app template and follow the easy step-by-step documentation. For Android, the latest Android Studio app is needed. For a Google Play Store app submission, a developer account from Google is required. No coding knowledge is required.
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.
Do you have a refund policy?
Yes! If Google rejects your app, we offer you a full refund of your WebViewGold license (by claiming within 14 days after purchase).

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 Chrome for Android. 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 Google Review Team. Please check out the example apps.
How can I ensure that my web app/website has a great, app-like user experience that satisfies my future app users?
Please consider a professional User Experience/UX Review on UXreviewer.io or similar services. Such a UX review with suggestions for improvement helps you to achieve better customer retention for your website, web app, and app.
Can you help me with the Play Store submission process / publishing with Google?
Yes, support for specific questions or problems during the publishing process is always free. Or choose the all-inclusive publishing service from appsubmitter.io.
