Creating iOS & Android app from a simple html5 + javascript game?

By | January 12, 2018
Questions:

I’ve written some simple online games using purely HTML5 and JavaScript. Nothing fancy, no server side stuff involved, essentially each game is just a single .html (which includes javascript and css) and some .png and .jpg images.

Now, this kinda works on mobile devices as well (android/iphone/ipad) by just surfing to the particular page, but I guess a dedicated app would work better / be more convenient on these devices.

I have exactly zero experience developing for iOS or Android, so maybe this question is too complicated to fully answer right away, but:

Is it possible to create an app for Android, and similarly for iOS (iphone/ipad), based on my html page, other than basically rewriting the entire game for those particular platforms?

If yes, how do I go about this? What would be the easiest way? Is there a ton of Android / iOS knowledge required, or is there some kind of generic “conversion” that wraps my html page (+required images) into a mobile app?

Answers:

I guess that phonegap would perfectly fit your needs.

Hope it helps
