I just started developing on Windows Phone 8 platform, and decided to try the HTML5 apps as that is what I know.
For that, in Visual Studio I select a Windows Phone HTML5 App project and, without adding any of my code, I deployed it into a device. The result: users (me) can zoom in/out and scroll horizontally/vertically. Surprised, I tested different apps on the phone
and even deployed an empty native Windows Phone app to see that they do not have that behavior.
Following instructions online, I was able to tweak the HTML/CSS and remove the zoom effect. But I didn't find any solution for the scrolling/swiping for WP8 (some incredibly over-complicated ones for WP7, but not much for Windows Phone 8)
Is it possible to make an HTML5 app look like a native app? or is the scrolling/swiping going to be there always in the phone:WebBrowser? I guess I'm doing things wrong and the solution must be something really easy (as I said, I'm just starting)
Thanks for reading... and hopefully for an answer :)
