WebView - An Excellent Tool for an Android Web Developer

Android is a powerful mobile operating system and provides a powerful web browsing experience. Android's Webview is one of the most used web application for Android web development. Android's web app - WebView - enables developers to build interactive mobile applications that take full advantage of handheld device. So, developing your Andriod web apps with WebView web technology is a great opportunity. Android web developers make the best use of this tool to build apps and optimizes your designs for Android various screen sizes and densities. Moreover, these developers also embed web based content into your Android app using WebView.

Let us find more in detail about this Web App.

There are primarily two ways to deliver an application on Android. Firstly, as a client-side application (built using the Android SDK and is installed on user devices as an .apk) and secondly, as a web application (developed using web standards and accessed through a web browser - there is nothing to integrate on user handsets.)

You can choose the web application for your android web development depending on the several aspects of your website. Nevertheless, Android - a Google application builder - makes the decision to develop a web application easier by offering two options.

  • Support for viewport properties that allow you to properly size your web application based on the screen size.
  • CSS and JavaScript features that allow you to provide different styles and images based on the screen's pixel density (screen resolution.)

Hence, your decision to build an Android web app can exclude consideration for screen support because it is quite simple to make your web pages display well on all types of screens powered by Android.

Another major feature of this Google application builder is that you don't have to create your application entirely on the client-side or entirely on the web. You can combine both the features by building a client-side Android application that embeds some web pages (i.e using a WebView in your Android application layout.) However, it is vital that you should not create Android web app basically as a means to launch your web site. On the contrary, Android web development should be carried out simply for the android environment only. You can even define an interface between your Android app and your web pages that allows JavaScript in the web pages to call upon APIs in your Android application that allows Android APIs to your web-based application.

In a nutshell, WebView - an Android web application helps developers build effective websites that are both client-based and web-based. Besides, they are also easy to run on all types of Android devices.
