Discussion on Web2App for IOS - Quickest Feature-Rich IOS Webview

154 comments found.

Hi. Just a question. There is any way (command or code) to recall a precise tab (the last one for example) from an internal html page. I want to make an app with all our sites in. 10 sites. So we thought about an home page to quickly pass directly to a tab. Leaving the scroll from left to right that works very well. Thank you.

Hi! At this time, it is not possible to link to or show an tab from within a another tab. If you’d like such an option, you’d manually have to include a function for linking between tabs.

Feel free to let me know if I can answer any further questions.

Apple sends me: Guideline 4.2 – Design – Minimum Functionality

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

To resolve this issue, 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.

For more information about creating web apps, refer to the Configuring Web Applications section of the Safari Web Content Guide.

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

So the whole app is useless because it cant get into the App Store..

I’m sorry to hear your app has not been accepted. This violation is in indication that Apple did not violate your app because of technical reasons (i.e. our template) but rather because of the content of your app (i.e. what you are showing, how you configured the template).

I’ve written the following resources about this:

im about to launch app to store , can you please confirm if it will be reviewed by apple or not , my website is :


It’s hard to say. While your site does look native, it appears that the menu isn’t persistent when switching pages (which makes it look like your app is a site). Also, if you don’t use tabs, depending on the reviewer, this might cause your app to not be accepted.

Is the UIWebView version still available for purchase and up to date with the similar features as the current version using WKWebView?

The following options, as added in V1.1 aren’t available in our UIWebView version:
- OneSignal support
- Loaded app urls outside the webview
- Option to open 'target blank' urls in safari
- Option to disable pull to refresh
- Cookies are stored between launches

That should be fine. In this case will proceed to purchase this. Can I trouble you to send the UIWebView version to me. Thanks!

Thank you for your purchase!

Actually, the UIWebView version is already included in your download. In the folder ‘previous versions’ you’ll find a zip file. If you unachieved it you’ll find the project right there. (In the archive is also a beta, but you can ignore this)

Feel free to let me know if I can answer any further questions for you.

how to add and edit tabs ??

Hi! The following documentation will be of help for this: https://sherdle.com/help/content-4/

pre purchase question. is it possible to use some native function?

Hi, we do offer native functionalities like the tab bar, navigation, admob, notifications and the option to open pages outside the web view. For a full overview, please read our description for the details.


We want to have Our Website as a APP like Webview for iOS.

Our website is eCommerce website and we use WooCommerce.

Can we use this plugin?

Hi! Web2App might just do exactly what you are looking for. We simply show your site as if it was an app.

Almost all sites (including WooCommerce) are supported by WebView, so you can use our Template. Feel free to let me know if I can answer any further questions.

Thank you for getting back to me. Sorry for the mix up (a ticket with the title ‘WebView’ got lost in the system so I, incorrectly, assumed it was yours based on your description).

Any new update coming? and support iOS 11 right? :p

Hi! We do plan to release an IOS 11 update and maintain Web2App with updates, but at this time I can’t provide you a timeframe for the next update.

Hello, I bought the web2app for android from you and I’m very satisfied. I want to buy this for ios also but I wnat a menu in the left like on the android(that burger menu). Do you think this is possible? Do you think appstore will accept my app? You can check on google play if you search for MultiClean. Many thanks!

Hi! Great to hear you like Web2App for Android. We don’t offer a drawer/side menu option on IOS yet, on IOS we only offer tabs at this time.

We do hope to introduce the drawer in a future update.
