Webviews. Android developers dislike using them as an entire app replacement and I'm no different. But when your client has no money left after spending it all on iOS development do you tell them no, or do you offer an alternative solution?

I would hazard a guess, and say this is where a decent chunk of webview apps come from.

There's a project in the pipeline at my work where this has happened and I can foresee it happening again as Android users are still seen as filthy peasants who don't deserve a native application.

While webview apps are easy enough to build I'm looking at making the experience a little nicer with some push notifications, default to device caching and a splash screen while loading.

I'm going to update the template I'm building over on GitHub, and I'll post a few more updates as I add features.
