    Hi everyone,

    I'm thinking of building a mobile app with articles on how to use a piece of software. I'm hoping to code it in html,css and JavaScript with a bit of native code for the phone. I want the user to be able to search, add, edit and delete articles. Does anyone have any advice on how I can achieve this? Thanks in advance

    It all depends on for which platform you intend to build the app.

    I would build the HTML, CSS and JavaScript part as you mentioned to be responsive and host it somewhere reliable (Smart Hosting comes to mind). You may find it easier to simply deploy an instance of a popular CMS such as WordPress. If you go with WordPress, I'd recommend for you to check out the WP-Touch plugin.

    Next, download the Android Studio IDE and have a play with the web browser functionality - you should be able to 'frame' your website in there so it appears somewhat native.

    I hope this helps. If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a PM.

    Have a great evening!

    Look at phone gap, Apache Cordova - that seems to be what you are looking for. Ionic is a good library to help build native looking apps in html/css/angular js.

    If you want a responsive site, I recommend that you use a mobile first web framework (such as Twitter Bootstrap).

    Ah brilliant this stuff is great, what's an easy piece of software to install? Ionic is quite complex and I don't want to install multiple things and use git

    ^ complex and doesn't want to use version control... thinks they understand HTML/CSS and some JS for a mobile app. No wonder employers are hiring outside the UK. :sigh:

    Anyway, this is a duplicate thread, my response is in the original: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...7&postcount=12 where I actually provide a lot of helpful info and advice to the OP.
