hello…i want to ask before i buy this source code, what features are there in this webview? What there is a feature to download a file? What there is a feature to watch videos from youtube, and displayed full screen? What no file upload feature? and moreover features are there?

one more question … what software is used to edit the source code for this? sorry I was new in the making app for iphone (example for android can use android studio or eclipse), Thank you in advance.

Hi creat015 and thanks for your comment! There is no built-in downloader feature. However you can redirect to these files and handle them by Safari “Open with…” dialog. YouTube fullscreen videos are supported by default. File upload works with photos/videos from gallery. You need the latest version of Xcode software. If you have more questions, please feel free to ask. Best regards and have a nice day!

We just launched WebViewGold for Android: http://webviewgold.onlineappcreator.com/android/ :) Enjoy!

Hi there,

Waiting for a reply on my email. Please tell me how long you need to have a answer/solution.

Thanks

Hi NetRoute, please check your mail inbox :) Best regards & thanks!

Dear WebViewGold community! We just launched WebViewGold for Android: http://webviewgold.onlineappcreator.com/android/ :) Enjoy!

First off, this product is very nice and does exactly what it says on the box and for the price its a great saver.

Now for the but, and its a big one, iTunes will not accept this app on the store, after spending $100 on a developer license and $21 for this code my app was rejected on the grounds that my app provides no more functionality that could be achieved in Safari and was told in order to be considered I must provide Native iOS functionality aswell. (Your app provides a limited user experience as it is not sufficiently different from a mobile browsing experience. As such, the experience it provides is similar to the general experience of using Safari. Including iOS features such as push notifications, Core Location, and sharing do not provide a robust enough experience to be appropriate for the App Store.). My web design is html 5 mobile optimized and there is no way to tell its a webpage when inside the app, I already have 500 downloads on Google Play. So Don’t be fooled that you can trick iTunes into accepting this, they are not looking at the design they are looking inside at the code.

If you are adding a webview to an existing app then its fine, but as a standalone app unfortunately its of no use, I don’t mean this as an insult to the author but please be aware of this before spending money if this is what you were hoping to achieve.

Thanks for your comment and feedback, Flamery. I am sorry for you, please email us to support@onlineappcreator.com – there are many apps on App Store like http://www.onlineappcreator.com/webviewgold/example-app/ If we can’t fix it for you, we will offer you a full refund of all costs of your WebViewGold license. Thanks and have a great day.

Hello can posable add Apple Watch support?

Hi perao and thanks for your comment! watchOS does not support WebView content at the moment, but we will keep an eye on this topic. If you have more questions, please feel free to ask. Best regards and have a nice day!

Some competitors declare the full support watchos)

Thanks for your reply! According to our information the current version watchOS 3.1.3 is not ready for UIWebView or WKWebView elements. However feel free to send us a short email to support@onlineappcreator.com & have a great day. Thank you!

There is a problem when running on iPhone with 3D touch, when you long press the buttons, the app throws in Safari. Therefore I wonder which of the modules you can add (embed) exception code, if you long press the button, the application did not prepassivate in Safari

Hi bobrick! Nice to hear from you again :) Did you already try our first suggestion here: https://codecanyon.net/comments/15558174 ? :) Best regards & have a great day!

Thank you providing a screenshot. This should be disabled by default (https://developer.apple.com/reference/uikit/uiwebview/1617976-allowslinkpreview); please email your source code to support@onlineappcreator.com – we will solve this for you! :) Have a great day & best regards.

Your app declares support for audio in the UIBackgroundModes key in your Info.plist but did not include features that require persistent audio.

Next Steps

The audio key is intended for use by apps that provide audible content to the user while in the background, such as music player or streaming audio apps. Please revise your app to provide audible content to the user while the app is in the background or remove the “audio” setting from the UIBackgroundModes key.

Recived Error On Submission to App Store please do help me

Hi dhavalsankhala! Nice to hear from you again. Please make sure to delete the Audio key in “Required background modes” array in Info.plist file if you do not use audio objects. Or email your source code to support@onlineappcreator.com – we can solve this for you! :) If you have more questions, please feel free to ask. Best regards & have a great time!

hello sir i want to change something when the connection is down i want the page html in the local folder to be shown if that possible

Hi Mrjoo1 and thanks for your comment. This is not possible by default. Please edit this screen in Interface Builder. If you need a custom HTML page please email a short message to support@onlineappcreator.com – we can create an offer for a custom solution. If you have more questions, please feel free to ask. Best regards & have a great time!

Hi friends!

After closing the app are not stored cookies and session. The user has to again login. How can I fix this problem?

The website, which is inserted into the webview: rs.bobrick.ru.

Thank you very much for the help!

Thank you, bobrick. Your cookie lifetime was set to “Until browser session ends”. Please check your mail inbox for more details & have a great day!

Thank you very much for the help! Sorry to have wasted your time :) I corrected the lifetime of the session.

You are welcome! Happy to hear that everything works fine now :)

There’re lots pictures in my website and also some videos, can your application cache the pictures and videos after first visit?

Thanks for your comment, wschun! WebViewGold uses the default UIWebView/WKWebView caching functionality – this does not include video caching. However feel free to send us a short email to support@onlineappcreator.com to discuss custom solutions. Thank you and have a great day!

what about pictures? I had plenty products pictures in my Woocommerce, thank you!

Thanks for your answer, wschun! Yes, there is a caching mechanism for images by default. If you have more questions, please feel free to ask. Enjoy your day! :)

From Apple

4. 2 Design: Minimum Functionality (iOS)

Design – 4.2

Your app provides a limited user experience as it is not sufficiently different from a mobile browsing experience. As such, the experience it provides is similar to the general experience of using Safari. Including iOS features such as push notifications, Core Location, and sharing do not provide a robust enough experience to be appropriate for the App Store.

Next Steps

Please revise your app to provide a more robust user experience by including additional native iOS functionality.

If you cannot – or choose not to – revise your app to be in compliance with the App Store Review Guidelines, you may wish to build an HTML5 web app instead. You can distribute web apps directly on your web site; the App Store does not accept or distribute web apps.

HTML5 is the major new version of HTML and enables audio and video to play natively in the browser without requiring proprietary plug-ins. Using HTML5, web apps can look and behave like native iPhone and iPad apps, and using HTML5’s Offline Application Cache, a web app can work even when the device is offline. With web apps, you have flexibility to deliver as much or as little functionality as you desire.

To get started with iPhone or iPad web apps, please review the Safari Client-Side Storage and Offline Applications Programming Guide.

For a description of the HTML elements and attributes you can use in Safari on iPhone, check out Safari HTML Reference: Introduction.

WHAT TO DO … SECOND TIME REJECTION

Hello and thanks for your comment, dhavalsankhala! We are sorry for your current situation. This highly depends on the content you provide in your app – WebViewGold does not provide content by itself. Your app should be useful and it should behave like a classic app (for example by disabling user zooming on your site + using the URL handling feature by WebViewGold). We know hundreds of apps that were accepted (e.g. http://www.onlineappcreator.com/webviewgold/example-app/). Please email to support@onlineappcreator.com to receive more support related to your specific situation. Thanks and have a nice day!

So I tried to contact you, but I didn’t get a respond. How do I remove the Facebook like function for the application?

Hello HostSonny and thanks for your comment! We replied to your email – please check your inbox. Just delete line 239 to 267 in WebViewController.swift file in order to deactivate the Facebook dialog. Have a great day & best regards!

Hi , I read a lot of webview apps are being rejected now because of lack of native iOS functionality. Can you add rrs /atom feeds, map and open camera/save to roll feature? This will ensure they get accepted in the app store. Please advise if you can offer this in future versions. Thanks.

Looking forward to hear from you! By the way: WebViewGold uses latest WKWebView techonology ;) Have a great day!

Yes thanks. I will be in touch this weekend with my requirements.

Great, looking forward! :)

I really would like to thank you for this wonderful solution, as i have finally lunched my app to app store and google play store. I need to know how can i change the app color from (Blue) to any other color?!

Thanks for your reply. WebViewGold for Android does not use any launch screens (not even a blue one) as this is only required by Apple iOS apps. Best regards and feel free to ask any further questions. Enjoy your day! :)

Yes I know sir, but when i lunch the app in android the upper bar which is containing the battery level and clock and so on changes to “BLUE”!!

Thanks for your reply, bahaamohy! Just replace the #4FaFFf color in colors.xml file to another color of your choice. Enjoy and feel free to ask any further questions. Have a great day! :)

Hello, I’ve heard a lot of these webview apps get rejected. I know you have one demo in the app store, but do you know more apps in the App Store that use webview? If so, please send me some examples of apps that got accepted.

Thank you in advance.

Hi HostSonny! This highly depends on the content you provide in your app – WebViewGold does not provide content by itself. Your app should be useful and it should behave like a classic app (for example by disabling user zooming on your site + using the URL handling feature by WebViewGold). Please feel free to reach us at support@onlineappcreator.com in order to get more App Store samples than our current example application (http://www.onlineappcreator.com/webviewgold/example-app/). Thanks and have a nice day!

OK, I sent you a message. Thanks

Thanks, please check your inbox! :)

Any update on landscape? waiting for it to buy

Hi ooztumer, thanks for your comment. Please send us your envato license cert PDF to support@onlineappcreator.com and we will configure this mode for you –without any extra costs. Have a great day & if you have any questions, let us know!

Can you confirm if App Store will support this now or if people are still being rejected by appstore?

Also can i publish notifications from paid services such as firebase and others?

Hi BirdyUK and thanks for your comment and you interest! No, we can’t guarantee that Apple will accept your app in App Store. This highly depends on the content you provide in your app – WebViewGold does not provide content by itself. Your app should be useful and it should behave like a classic app (for example by disabling user zooming on your site + using the URL handling feature by WebViewGold). Sure, you can integrate third-party SDKs which fit your needs. Please feel free to reach us at support@onlineappcreator.com in order to discuss your plans (app content + SDKs). Thanks and have a nice day!

@onlineappcreator – I am very close to buying your app i just need to know a couple of other things. The reason for this is because i have no experience in Swift or Objective C, I am a frontend and backend developer mainly coding in html, css, node, angular, javascript, php, ect ect..

In terms of having a html folder in the app, Is it possible to serve the html pages content from an API as a pose to just using the app as a mobile version of the website? That way i could build custom html pages that make http requests to a backend api for the content.

Thanks

Yes, that’s 100 % possible! :) Sounds like a perfect deal using WebViewGold for your requirements. If you have any questions left, please always free to ask via CodeCanyon comments, email messages (support@onlineappcreator.com) or WhatsApp chat (number can be found on Item Details page). Have a nice day! :)
