WebView Mobile App

A WebView mobile app shows a web application in the form of a mobile application in a flexible yet fantastic way. In simple terms, a WebView app resembles a website’s view when opened from a mobile browser.

Advantages of a webview app:
1. Replicates a website’s view inside a mobile app
2. Time-saving in terms of time-constrained development

Disadvantages of a webview app:
1. Show the features only available on the web application
2. Tough to add new feature on the mobile-side

Program (Java):

package com.khalnayak.webview;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.KeyEvent;
import android.view.Window;
import android.webkit.WebSettings;
import android.webkit.WebView;
import android.webkit.WebViewClient;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    WebView web;

    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        web = findViewById(;
        WebSettings webSettings = web.getSettings();

        // JavaScript must be enabled to view the site
        web.setWebViewClient(new Callback());

        // web URL to show the view

    private class Callback extends WebViewClient{
        public boolean shouldOverrideKeyEvent(WebView view, KeyEvent event){
            return false;
