Since 2010, when the term “app” became the word-of-the-year by the American Dialect Society, apps have expanded to be widely used far beyond their initial intention as a productivity assistant for email, contact databases, and calendar usage. Today, they allow us to take pictures, work offline, play games, set up factory automation, use geo location, send push notifications, access files, and so much more. 

And, some additional ways to get that “app” feel on your website.

The world loves apps. 

And, as evidenced in this ad from Webflow’s early days, Webflow intended to offer app-like functionality, as well as their quintessential responsive website designer. Around seven years later, it seems they have changed their plans, due to technical constraints. 

They do an amazing job as a site builder, and a lot of designers and developers would love to be able to take it further, with a dedicated mobile app, or at least more mobile functionality. Because the web has a bounce rate of around 40% after 3 seconds, it makes sense to try and get your app on individual devices, where distractions are minimal, and you get a better user experience.

Webflow Desk application

In addition to a dedicated mobile app,  a Webflow Desk application is another wish of the community of users, where data is stored in the cloud, and accessible on any device. To have the ability to make changes to your site while on-the-go, or away from your computer would be very advantageous. But, sadly, it does not exist. Webflow Wishlist

Building software with Webflow

Although designers and developers are hungry for this kind of capability within the Webflow designer, it’s not on their roadmap. Their stance right now is that a fully responsive website is better optimized for SEO, and a dedicated “app” is not necessary. 

There are options available when you really need that app, however. Webflow itself delivers this video,  “Prototyping a mobile app in Webflow” by Nelson Abalos, Jr. from 2017, which can be cloned here. This takes you through how to design an app using the mobile portrait and landscape views in the designer to achieve an “app” feel.

Similarly, Timothy Ricks tutorial from 2019 has a more current version of how to achieve a mobile app-like functionality in the Webflow designer. His clear, concise, and fast-paced tutorial takes you step-by-step through the process and will have you building that app in no time.

Or, if you are comfortable with code and like the “hands-on” approach, we have some excellent options. 

Quickly turn your Webflow website into a desktop app using Node.js, a command line tool, and a terminal app.

  1. Download Node.js (nodejs.org/)
  2. Open a terminal app, like Putty 
  3. Using Node.js in the terminal app, install ‘nativefier’ by typing: npm install -g nativefier, then hit Enter.
  4. After it goes through the installation, change your directory to desktop so it doesn’t go to your root folder, with: cd desktop.
  5. Finally, run: nativefier “add the url for the site”, then hit Enter. 

This will install the website onto your desktop in an app frame that looks and feels just like an app.

Progressive web apps

Some clever developers have successfully made Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) with Webflow by using the Lighthouse tool in Chrome dev tools. If your browser supports this feature, you can register a JavaScript file as a worker, then use a library like Workbox to set it up for you. To have the ability to view your new app offline, you’ll need to cache the url’s, then create a manifest.json file with meta data and icons. Once you’ve completed all the tasks, you’ll see a PWA achievement in Lighthouse and you can load the app onto any device. 

This also allows you to quickly build websites that look, feel, and function like native web apps. You’ll have the benefits of excellent distribution, as well as everything living in a single code base for web, iOS, and android. A bonus point for PWAs is that you’ll be able to keep revenues earned instead of sharing with the app store.

Suggested by several developers in the Webflow Forum over the years, you can also build your site in Webflow, making it responsive, then use a third-party service like appypie to make your site look like an app, which can then be shipped to an app store.

Alternatively, from a July 2020 discussion in the Webflow Forum, yantiarifin figured out that she could mimic a native mobile app by adding these snippets of code to the <head> tag of her site:

<meta name=”apple-mobile-web-app-capable” content=”yes”>

<meta name=”mobile-web-app-capable” content=”yes”>

When launched from a ‘short-cut’, both Safari and Chrome will display the “app” in a browser without a frame. See this page from Web.dev about building a PWA with offline streaming
