The only thing I can think of is to have an invoke function set in motion right when the application opens, but that would require your application to actually open and then direct the user to the browser.  Then the user would be left with an empty screen for your app.


Another approach would be to simply have a webview within your app as the opening page, which would show your website and therefore the user can use your app like they would the browser.
