Web view extension brings a large amount of possibilities to your app. As you can reflect any existing web page via URL, you can accomplish almost anything.
Some common uses of this module include web-based e-commerce solutions, forms for gathering data or pages that are absolutely essential to your app’s purpose.
The URL added through this extension can be opened inside of an app, using our own “child browser”. Think of it as a wrapper for the webpage, used to deliver the same content, in-app. There is also a possibility to choose external option. In that case your website would be opened outside of the app, in default browser.
How to Add your Website
To add your website you need to choose Web view extension, in-app or external in Screens tab.
When you add in-app Web view extension, you can also choose if navigation toolbar should be shown and if website requires location permissions.
That is not the case with external option, as website is not opened inside the app.
This is how your website would look like in the app:
As a note, Apple tends to reject apps that rely heavily on this feature as they prefer apps that are different than a traditional web-browsing experience. We recommend using this extension sparingly to avoid this scenario.
