I have been scoping the possibility of building an app that basically wraps around a responsive website.
Build a database driven website. Keep the website up to date.
Build an app that wraps up and displays the website. The app would retain the users login details through a local storage variable.
Need both an app and a website and only wish to keep one updated
The website content is dynamic and will be updated daily.
An app has a feeling of being more idiot proof/easier/familiar to use for non techies
Problems I can see so far
Have read Apple and Google Play wouldn't allow simple HTML5 website wrappers
If all else fails I would need to build a native app and make database calls to the website and present them within the app
As this is a scoping exercise, I was wondering if anyone had come up against such a project in the past and which route would be the best to take from a usability/timescale/cost viewpoint.
