This is probably the best WebView app I have ever come across. Hope the development will continue well as until now and just want to say: “Excellent App”.
– Pierre Soria, WebView App
I wish I could give more than 5-star rating because not only the app is wonderfully coded, but Robo Templates provide great video instruction, have excellent FAQ, and are quick to respond to support questions. This is app from experienced Android developer and completely worth to buy. I’m excited to see what I can turn it into! Thanks for the awesome app design!
– Weblab Design, WebView App
Robo Templates are very responsive to my questions and reply to my comments in a very short time. I like the way they treat me as non developer experimenting with Android Studio. Kudos for that.
– Evalcaine, WebView App
Great template, fast support and excellent documentation. It’s easy to work with this project. My first experience with Android Studio and it works just great.

Great customer support. I had some troubles and Robo Templates helped me to resolve it. Very cool. Highly recommended!
– Hiim Naruto, Cookbook
This is my first real experience with building Android apps. I had my first app up and running in no time. The code seems really clean, the documentation is excellent and the app seems to adhere to most of the current design guidelines for Android apps resulting in a beautifully polished and fast app. Cheers guys!
– Adam Newton, City Guide
One of the best Android application, simple and easy to use, and what is great – the application is really fast.
– Steven Dahdah, City Guide
Great start point to build your own app or to use it as it is to create a basic app with the provided functionality, with limited or even “none” knowledge of coding. Great work! Code structure is clear and it follows all Google guidelines.

I can confirm that I'm facing with virus issue almost every day. For example yesterday I got report from the user: "After malware scan today of my phone with Malwarebytes is got notion that your app was infected with Trojan Inazigram" - I tested Malwarebytes some time ago and I got the same warning. And yes - this webview is the only script which has such issue. I hope that this whitelist documentation and overall app update will come soon.
Hi. We are working on a new update. Please could you send me more detailed info? Did you white-list your app? Thanks.
you can install malwarebytes and test it how it looks. How I can whitelist the app?
Hi. New version of the app should work fine now and there should not be any false positive alerts anymore. We made a lot of improvements and optimizations in the webview. It is secured and it works great! We tested the new version with 7 most popular antivirus programs (Avast, Avira, Bitdefender, Kaspersky, Malwarebytes, McAfee, Virustotal) and no false positive was found. See the screenshots below. Thanks.
great news, thank you - another question about the new version: can I turn off this native loader icon? I had my own loading progress and I don't need the new one since I have better.
You will have to change the code. Which progress bar do you mean? The big one when a page is loaded for a first time or the small one on top?
I mean the small one. I tried several codes I found in the comments but it didn't work. I only removed the large one.
Try to disable it with
where should I add or replace this code?
Open MainFragment and find a definition of setupSwipeRefreshLayout() method. Add it for all 3 swipe refresh layouts.
How we can enable pinch zoom images effect... if image is open in webview.
Hi. Please see this FAQ link: https://codecanyon.net/item/universal-android-webview-app/8431507/faqs/21463 Thanks.
Can we hide the Zoom (+/-) buttons while pinch zoom is enabled.
I did the zoom button issue thanks anyway! How can we desable swipe down refresh page feature
Hi. You can disable swipe to refresh in the config. Please see the documentation. Thanks.
is there any splash screen included ? While app loads can we put our logo into it ?
Hi. Please see this FAQ link: https://codecanyon.net/item/universal-android-webview-app/8431507/faqs/21330 Thanks.
hahaha, nice explanation.
can we call current geo location from your script??
Hi. I recommend to use HTML5 geolocation. Please see our demo app how it works. I recommend you to try our demo app on Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.robotemplates.webviewapp and test if it works for you. Thanks.
Hello, I would like an application that will load only the URL of my site without additional menu without anything, do you have a solution? I have a website with login with facebook. here is the website www.camairquiz.cm. Thank you

If i buy your item and making my website app using your method, and after sometime if i deleted my website and want to make new website and new app the is it possible to use the same purchase key ?
Hi. You have to buy a license for each end product. So if you are going to publish 3 apps on Google Play, you have to buy 3 licenses. If you are going to sell your app, you will have to buy an extended license. The Extended License is required if end user must pay to use end product. Please see this link for more info: https://codecanyon.net/licenses/standard?license=regular Thank you.
Hello Works upload images? Thank you
Hi. It is possible, but you need to add some extra code to make it work (app doesn’t support it by default). See this articles for more info: http://rost.me/2013/04/18/android-webview-and-file-input/ http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18568566/webview-input-of-type-file-camera-and-image Hope it helps.
Hello. If you are looking for a solution how to upload file/image via webview, see following FAQ link. It is quite simple. Note that file is usually uploaded as application/octet-stream content type. http://codecanyon.net/item/universal-android-webview-app/8431507/faqs/21475

I am facing problem at last stage. On command line when writing "gradlew assemble" its saying command not found: gradlew . I am on root folder and all gradle folder and gradlew file is here. But command not working...
Please make sure that: 1) You have a Gradle Wrapper included in the project. 2) You are running the Gradle Wrapper (gradlew) from the right directory - it should be the directory where gradlew script is - it is root directory of the project.
gradlew is just a bat/shell script.
Hi, When I imported app to Eclipse I am getting following error - lots of similar errors Description Resource Path Location Type error: Error retrieving parent for item: No resource found that matches the given name '@style/TextAppearance.AppCompat.Widget.ActionBar.Menu'. styles.xml /MainActivity/res/values line 268 Android AAPT Problem See the below screenshot link https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10537642/Error-Values.png Hope I will have solution soon.
Hello. We don't support Eclipse IDE. We recommend you to use Android Studio. However, you need to include necessary libraries (AppCompat, support library) to make it work.
This app is cool ! I like it !
Thank you very much. We are going to introduce Material design soon. Stay tuned! :)
A minor issue or bug I've noticed: you can add six links in the drawer menu, but anything past six links doesn't seem to work. You can tap on it, but it doesn't go anywhere. This is a great webview though.
Hi. Please make sure that all 4 arrays have the same number of items in navigation.xml. See documentation for more info: Configuration -> 6. Setup navigation and web pages. Thanks.
I forgot to add an item to the last array which was causing the issue. Thanks.
Hello Testing the application ... By tapping the back button the application is closed. Please, I want back to the previous page and not close the app, is that possible?
Hello. There are 2 modes according to opening web pages. If there is a browsing history (previous page exists) and you press back button, you return back to the previous page. If there is no page in the browsing history, back button just close the app - it is a standard behavior. This feature is supported if the configuration is following: OPEN_LINKS_IN_EXTERNAL_BROWSER = false. Hope it helps. Thanks.
Dear developers. A lot of apps uses "Press again to exit" method how to prevent unwanted exit. Example: http://www.tushroy.com/2014/03/double-back-press-exit-android-app.html. Can you explain best method and how to integrate it in FAQ? Thank you.
Hi. Please try to modify onKey() callback in the MainFragment.java. This feature is very specific and you are the first who asked for it, so we will not add it to FAQ. If you need some customization, let us know via e-mail and we will try to help you. Customization is a paid service and it isn't a part of our support. Thanks.
Hello! I started the application on the phone.. and for example one page from the site, I loaded 10 seconds... why so long? in application settings I have disabled mobile advertising, google analytics I've been tortured and left as is... push notifications, too, didn't touch... use Wi-fi The main question: Why so long to open a website in your application... for 10 seconds... maybe something you want to configure advanced... help... P. S. the site itself on the computer, I loaded very fast 0.6 seconds...
Hi. Please see this FAQ link: http://codecanyon.net/item/universal-android-webview-app/8431507/faqs/22212 Thanks.
Thank you. Replaced code. Now download is 6.7 seconds.... tell that to the normal rate.. at all by the standards of how much has loaded site? and I didn't disconnect GoogleAnalyt and Push... of resources inhibit the website? can they still be turned off? how else can you optimize the application?
and without wi-fi on 3g at all of 18 seconds to boot... help you optimize your app...
Did you try different device? Which device do you have? What is your web url?
looked at another phone... it feels good... tell me I created a local html page and pasted from your site to the search form.... enter the word to search but can't find anything... though the site is supposed to find... I think maybe the site truncates the search query? what could it be? thank you)
How did you implement the search? Note that local page is just a HTML. For example, you cannot run PHP locally. You need a PHP server.
Roger that. So the word that I enter in the search field is not transmitted to the website because not scanning script search due to the lack of PHP servers.
Yes. You probably don't have PHP server on your Android device so you cannot do this. Technically it is not possible. Thanks for understanding.
hi there how to add admob intertitial ads? thanks
Hi. Currently we support only banner ads but it is very easy to implement full screen ads. See this tutorial https://developers.google.com/mobile-ads-sdk/docs/admob/android/interstitial and this code snippet: http://pastebin.com/R10TfxQk This is an example how to use interstitial ad. In this case, the ad will be shown if user closes the app. It is pretty easy. If you have any questions, let us know.
can I just copy paste that code into MainActivity.java?
Yes, you can try. It should work.
hi there, I got error , can we discussion via email? thanks
Please contact us via e-mail. Thanks.

Hi. Actually we've replied to your e-mail. Try to check your spam box.
The application is already fully edited. I just want to send you the draft For you to make my application more quickly. It takes too long to load the page ):
Hi. I am sorry but this is not a part of our support. We provide only text form support. We cannot program the app for you for free because it takes a lot of time and we have a lot of requests. Thanks for understanding. Please see this FAQ link about webview cache: http://codecanyon.net/item/universal-android-webview-app/8431507/faqs/22212 Also test the app on more devices. If you need a customization or help with the programming, contact us via e-mail. Customization or custom programming is a paid service. Thanks.

Hi, I have a website that uses "facebook login" inside the webview app, when the user click to authenticate through facebook ; the webview app load the facebook login page inside the webview, but I want use the facebook android app to authenticate the user (if user is already logged in) Can you help me to integrate this ? Thanks in advance.
Hi. Unfortunately I don't have experience with this. Please check Facebook documentation or contact Facebook support. Thanks.
Thank you I'll try, and I'll probably contact you soon for a paid code customization : I'll need 2 or 3 custom options (with this request)
Hi again, I think I made some big mistakes. I had uploaded to google play an app that I made in an other app before. And this time i tried to upload an update with the universal app theme. But google play says that the certificats aren't the same. [ SHA1: 7E:DF:....) how can i change that? where can i find this to overwrite it whit my previos certificat code.
Hi. If you already published your app on Google Play and you wanna publish a new update, you have to sign APK with the same certificate (keystore). If you lose your certificate, it is a big problem, because there is no way how to workaround it. You will have to publish your APK as a new app. Please see documentation for more info: https://developer.android.com/tools/publishing/publishing_overview.html
