How do I Setup a Web View?

The easiest way to setup a web view is to use PhoneGap. iOS developers consider this “cheating” to some extent. Using a WebView alone does limit the ability to take advantage of native functionality, however, PhoneGap provides plugins to access most  features via JavaScript extensions.

The plugins can be somewhat challenging to install, but if you are just creating iOS apps, you’ll only incur the challenge once. Besides, if you are familiar with iOS already, figuring out how to install a plugin is a little easier.

If you are really a die hard native developer, here’s use my simple project to get the job started.

git clone
