I have used PhoneGap Build (https://build.phonegap.com) to turn a HTML5-published Storyline project in apps for both iOS and Android, see some general info here: http://wp.me/p2BoUf-6Z. The process is quite simple. For iOS apps, you do need an Apple developer license to get the required certificate and provisioning profile.

Hi Michael,

Just a few question, How to make a config.xml, and whats the ideal size of the icon?

Cheers

I doubt my config.xml file will be of much use to you, because each config file is unique to an application, with app-specific permissions, icon resources, etc. In any case, here is the one I used for my test app: http://dev.keypointlearn.com/xcl71_SL/AndroidApp/config.xml. You’ll have to adapt this to your Android app. I use Dreamweaver to edit xml file, but you can use any editor. Here is a great icon generator that creates the various sizes for an Android app: http://android-ui-utils.googlecode.com/hg/asset-studio/dist/icons-launcher.html#foreground.space.trim=1&foreground.space.pad=0&foreColor=33b5e5%2C0&crop=0&backgroundShape=bevel&backColor=ffffff%2C100 . For iOS app icon sizes and naming conventions, check the Apple DevCenter.

Teejay, Glad I could help. Keep us posted on your progress, I always love to see what other folks are doing with apps. Also, in case you missed this recent thread here, which shows a sample of an Android app: http://community.articulate.com/forums/t/41079.aspx


Hi Michael,

Just want to ask you about the config.xml, what's gonna be in it? (sorry for the question) .

If you don't mind can you give me a good example of cong.xml for mobile app that you use, so I have a backgroud on what to put and what's needed.

Thank you Michael

Here is some info on the structure and content of the config.xml file: http://docs.build.phonegap.com/en_US/2.9.0/configuring_basics.md.html#The%20Basics . For example, you would add references  to the various-sized application icons to this file, here is the applicable snippet:

   
   
   
   
   

That's just one example, the content of this file will be different for each app.
