Hey, your app is great! However, I really need to know how to remove the silly house icon from the toolbar. It has no purpose in my app. Please don’t tell me that there is no way on earth to remove it because there is. I just need for you to tell me where in my apk to modify one or 2 lines to get it gone. Thank you! Please answer when you read this because I would like to publish my app to the playstore asap!

Hi! You can edit the menu xml file (in the /res folder) and add an android:visible=”false” attribute to any item you’d like to hide.

Hi! Please refer to the following document on defining which urls should open outside the app: https://sherdle.com/help/configure-what-should-open-outside-the-app-or-as-download/

Hi! my application gives a blank page error for about 3 weeks. I use wordpress and https url. how do I solve this problem?

website: https://turkcusozluk.com/ application: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tengri.turkcusozluk&hl=tr

Hi! I’m sorry to hear you are having trouble. If something changed in the last 3 weeks (without any changes to your app) it is very likely that something on your site changed that caused this.

What version of Ads SDK does this have? Reason I’m asking is cause AdMob said the following: “Beginning Jan 23, 2018, Google Mobile Ads SDK versions older than 7.0.0 for Android will no longer be supported”

I really hope this doesn’t apply to Web2App… If it does, I don’t have a need for this tool.

We use Google Mobile Ads V10 so you should be good for now :)

Hi! I am happy to answer your questions: 1) There is no plugin.

Hi! I’m happy to answer your question: 0) Universal supports several content providers like Facebook, Instagram, Youtube and WebView. Web2App only supports WebView. 1) For all our templates, no coding knowledge is required. 2) We offer videos for some steps, and for others we offer written step-step documentation. And if you have any questions, you can of course drop us a ticket. 3) If you use Wordpress with Universal. Content will be updated automatically in the app, no action required. 4) With Universal, we support RTL. 5) Yes 6) For all products on CodeCanyon goes: For each app you publish, you need an additional license. The difference between the regular and extended license is in whether or not users pay for your content (i.e. paid app, requires an extended license).

thank you very much sherdleapps so with an ecommerce app i need extended version ?

You only need an Extended license if you sell your app for money or for in-app purchases. WooCommerce and eCommerce WebView doesn’t count as a paid app or in-app purchase, so a regular license should be ok for you.

Pre sales question > Can we send Push-notification Via Our own Google Firebase Account with our API KEY? thanks regards

By default, we support OneSignal for notifications. You can send free unlimited notifications from OneSignal.com to your users, with your own API key.

We don’t support Firebase by default, but it should be easy to integrate firebase if you’d like to use it.

Hi, how can I change OneSignal.NotificationOpenedHandler to a default URL when users click on notifications

Hello! You can manually change the handler in App.java to fit you needs if you’d like.

Like this?

public void notificationOpened(OSNotificationOpenResult result) { try { JSONObject data = result.notification.payload.additionalData;

String webViewUrl = (data != null) ? data.optString("url", null) : window.open("https://www.site.com/notification");
        String browserUrl = result.notification.payload.launchURL;
if (webViewUrl != null || browserUrl != null) {
        if (browserUrl != null || result.notification.isAppInFocus) {
            browserUrl = (browserUrl == null) ? webViewUrl : browserUrl;
            Intent browserIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse(browserUrl));
            Log.v("INFO", "Received notification while app was on foreground or url for browser");
        } else {
            push_url = webViewUrl;
    } else if (!result.notification.isAppInFocus) {
        Intent mainIntent;
        mainIntent = new Intent(App.this, MainActivity.class);
        mainIntent.setFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_REORDER_TO_FRONT | Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK);
} catch (Throwable t) {

I’m not sure about your edits (it seems like javascript) but make sure that browser url and webviewurl are both equal to the string you’d like to show.


I’m going to buy your site because the videos in full screen interested me, but the videos in the “Universal” are appearing the bar of notifications, even in full screen, already in “Web2App”, the entire screen is perfectly. But “Universal” interested me to have other apps like Facebook. Anyway, even if I buy “Universal” I can leave the videos in full screen without the notification bar? Because in the demo was the bar

Hi! Web2App has more WebView dedicated features than Web2App. It can be that Fullscreen videos for example are better handled in Web2App then for Universal.

I will ask our developers to look into the fullscreen video support with WebView for Universal anyways :)

So. I ended up buying “Universal” thinking that it would have the same features as Web2, but I was wrong. Until now I could not generate a decent apk, the videos are not full screen. Anyway, can you provide me with Web2 and cancel Universal? Or cancel the purchase of Universal and I buy Web2? Well, apparently Web2 is better for me and I need it urgently, I can not expect future updates from “Universal”. Universal the videos of the site are not full screen, do not have the option of “splash image”, not to mention that until now I could not put a logo, or anything of the type.

I’m sorry to hear that you’ve purchased the wrong item.

In general, Envato’s refund policy does not cover accidental purchases as this concerns a downloadable product. However, if you accidentally purchased a copy of one of our items, and you meant to purchase different template from us instead, I’d be happy to offer you a refund as a courtesy.

1. Purchase the item that you actually meant to purchase. This must be an item published by ‘sherdleapps’. 2. Go to https://codecanyon.net/refund_requests/new and submit a refund request for the item you accidentally purchased. In this refund request, you should include a copy of the license code of your new Template. 3. If everything checks out, I’ll accept your refund.

Feel free to let me know if you need further assistance.

I have questions:

Can u give notification history in your app in future update?

Thank you for your feature suggestion!

Hey, I’m not sure if you received my email yesterday, But I would like to hide the status bar/notification bar. I tried some lines of code I found online, but they either don’t put the app in fullscreen, or just make it crash. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi! I’ve replied to your email :)

I actually found a solution on how to make it full screen. Just 2 lines of code. Delete this comment if I’m not allowed to post this here, but might help out others.

Go to res/values/styles.xml/styles.xml and styles.xml(v21) and in the main theme paste this: <item name=”android:windowNoTitle”>true</item> <item name=”android:windowFullscreen”>true</item>

Also if you want to force the app into landscape, go to AndroidManifest.xml, and under main activity paste this: android:screenOrientation=”landscape”

Hi! Great to see you’ve worked it out. You’re certainly allowed to post here. Hopefully you can help others too :)

Did anyone else have problems with video display? Mine plays audio only from the video. I tried with flowplayer and JWplayer from my own site. I also tried from youtube directly. I was using the emulator from my Mac and dont have any Android devices so I am wondering if its just me or a broader issue.

Hi! Other users can’t reply to your comment (code canyon by design), but I’ve never heard of this issue. It can very well be that this is an issue of the emulator only and that it doesn’t occur on actual devices (especially youtube works on all my devices in Web2App).

Can I hide the Toolbar and show my Website in Fullscreen Mode and is it possible to Force that App needs geolocation? So that User must give the App the permission to use geolocation?

This is certainly possible. You can hide the toolbar.

You can configure Geolocation to be prompted as the app starts (but you can’t force users, that isn’t good practice): https://sherdle.com/help/add-webview-permissions/

One question: Is it possible to enable GPS on phone by starting the app and asking for geolocation, if GPS is disabled? I hope you understand. How I can enter more than one required permission?

In the config.java: line74 public static String[] PERMISSIONS_REQUIRED = new String[]{Manifest.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION};

If user gives the permission but GPS is disabled, there must be a permission to enable GPS

I have entered this in MainActivity.java and it works fine when GPS is disabled, but when it’s enabled there is an error message that “Required XML Attribute “adUnitId” was missing”. Can you please help me?

// Location Service
LocationManager locationManager = (LocationManager) getSystemService(LOCATION_SERVICE);
if (locationManager.isProviderEnabled(LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER)){
    makeText(this, "GPS ist eingeschaltet", LENGTH_SHORT).show();
private void showGPSDisabledAlertToUser(){
    AlertDialog.Builder alertDialogBuilder = new AlertDialog.Builder(this);
    alertDialogBuilder.setMessage("GPS ist nicht aktiviert. Möchten Sie dies tun?")
            .setPositiveButton("Einstellungen öffnen",
                    new DialogInterface.OnClickListener(){
                        public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int id){
                            Intent callGPSSettingIntent = new Intent(
            new DialogInterface.OnClickListener(){
                public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int id){
    AlertDialog alert = alertDialogBuilder.create();

I have a solution. Thanks

Good to hear, have a nice week!

You uploaded an APK with an invalid signature (learn more about signing). Error from apksigner: ERROR: JAR_SIG_NO_SIGNATURES: No JAR signatures

Firstly congratulations for the fantastic App. How can I put Google Cast in this webview app?

Hi! Thank you for your purchase. To answer your question, we currently do not support Google Cast with this WebView template.

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


I asked this question because it has an app that has this function. See this app below. It is Webview, can access any website and when it finds a video, it gives the option to play for Chromecast, DLNA and etc.


It can be that there are some apps that have extended the WebView or added a custom implementation that allows for Google Cast support. But unfortunately isn’t the case for Web2App.

hello ,, if iwant menu support rtl What should I do and if iwant add social media icon What should I do thanks for your helping :)

Currently we don’t support RTL for the native layout. However, if you set your app to be fullscreen the native layout is hidden and this should not be an issue. You can change icons in our dashboard or you can follow the documentation.
