Can I just use the WebView Control to bring a HTML5 Canvas game to the App Store? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi. I've been working on an HTML5 canvas game and it's nearing launch. As a quick win, I tossed the URL into a WebView control in a Store App and had it fill the screen - it worked great. I'll need to do some tweeting with navigation but for the most part, this was an easy win.

    My question is will this be allowed on the web store? I'm I breaking any rules?

  • I can't answer if it will pass or not, but if your app is just a WebView hardcoded to your URL then what value does it add over going to the site in a web browser?

    Why not put your HTML code into the app and connect it up with the system?

    For the official regulations see Windows 8 app certification requirements .
