App World App Help

Hi,

I wondered if anyone could help. I have an app I am developing for my school, currently at: http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/64873/?lang=en

 

The app is hopeless. I have created it in HTML and packaged it up in a cod file - but the config file is just a pain and it seems to work on some blackberrys and not others. Very frustrating. All seems to work on the simulator, and on the odd device. 

 

Perfect scenario would be to just have something that people can download from the App World that places the icon on their home screens. It then just accesses this website: http://webapp.conyersbite.co.uk , which would save me having to repackage up all the time I make a change. 

 

I know I can just direct people to the URL, but being in the App World Store makes it far more accessible. 

 

Does anyone know if/how the above would be achieved. I would really appreciate it.

 

Thanks.

Hi,

I think this is what you are looking for. Someone already created it and posted the sourcecode: http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Web-and-WebWorks-Development/Creating-a-full-browser-web-icon...

Hope it helps, good luck!

Re: App World App Help

Are all those services available online? A simple web launcher might be a better option than a webworks app (in my experience webworks apps don't run well on anything with a slower processor than the 9700, which includes my poor 9650).

If you need help making a weblauncher let me know and I can help you out.
