Our goal is to turn your website into an app in a way that requires no website changes from you. Unfortunately there are some app issues that we can't resolve at the moment. Mostly these are features that most web browsers support, but our apps don't. That means, if your website relies on such features, they won't work in your app.
Our apps can't display PDF files inside the app. We can't resolve this ourselves, we have to wait on Google for a fix.
Currently, our apps can't download files. To resolve this, we need to wait on a change by Google.
Some websites follow the bad practice of showing different content based on user agents. This can also cause issues with webtoapp.design apps, as they use a custom user agent. Here's some more information about the apps' user agents and why they're modified.
We believe this is the reason why the Paypal checkout form does not work on some websites when using our apps on an iOS device. This issue can usually be resolved by embedding the Paypal checkout differently.
It can be difficult to classify what an issue, that's occurring in your app, is caused by. In this guide we discuss various methods for you to find out exactly that.
If you already have an app, but want to switch to an app by webtoapp.design, it makes sense to publish the new app as an update to your existing one. That way, your existing users automatically receive the new app as an update, without manually having to search and download it.
Here's a quick guide on how to install an Android app before publishing it in the Google Play Store or another Android app store.
This website is operated by me, Jan, and my team. I have previously developed a bunch of apps for clients and my own projects. Back in 2019 I noticed that none of the existing website to app converters provide the kind of service I'd expect as a customer. That inspired me to develop a better solution - webtoapp.design. By now, the apps I've created with my team have already been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times from the app stores.
