One of the android platform available user interface controls is the web view. The web view functions as a small web browser and is capable of parsing and displaying data similarly to any web browser. Its implementation is based on the WebKit open source browser. The same engine Chrome and Safari are based on. The methods we can call on a web view object allows us having a smooth integration between the data displayed within the web view and the native part of our application. This integration allows us to enjoy both worlds. This course focuses on this new type of applications, also known as hybrid applications.
