I am looking to replace my branded mobile apps. Too much trouble.

 

We are however still interested in a branded experience with a homescreen icon, for continuity.

 

I want two simple apps that just webview in.leadingre.com (my docebosaas url) in a fullscreen webkit browser within the app.

 

Any suggestions for a reasonably priced yet good dev for this purpose for iOS/Android?

If just doing a web wrapper, there's a bunch of open source solves for that that are pretty straight forward. At that point though, can you just direct folks to use the add to home screen options to get your icon on their homescreen instead of dealing with managing the apps as well?

150,000 non computer savvy users. Hence the ask for the webwrapper app. But yes, I agree with you.

would just google for a couple of the best open source ones, it’s a pretty straight forward process and then you don’t have to pay a dev just for a wrapper.

This looks pretty correct. It sounds like wkwebview is better than sfsafariviewcontroller, but tbh idk
