  • Hi Kranthi,

    you could use the Webbrowser-Control for that and just display your Website inside of the control. But then the question is, why do you want to create an app for that, when it just has no functionality itself. :)

    Alternatively, what many apps do, they're accessing the same services as the Website, and so are loading the same data to display. But the apps are natively built and they have typical style & functionality, like Appbar, Charms-integration etc.
