Absolutely, you can use any converter available online to convert a website to a mobile app; however, there are some limitations stuck with it. Here, we will list out all the limitations of using app converters.

Without waiting much, let’s get started:

6 Limitations of Website into App Converters

First & foremost, the converters will only provide a specific type of feature.

The majority of online converters can only convert a website into an app only if your site is built in JS, HTML, or CSS. However, if you want to develop an app from scratch, then it will require a lot of time, money, and effort.

It can’t convert your website into a native iOS or Android app with a highly interactive UI & improved performance.

Several converters will not be able to utilize the particular features of mobile devices.

Some converters convert it using WebView-wrapper. Here, your website is made somewhat responsive and looks like an app when you open it in a mobile browser.

Lastly, it is not very easy to enhance the features of the app in the near future. Therefore, if you have to upgrade it to build a highly scalable product, then you should build an app from scratch from a highly skilled mobile app developer.

Which are the Most Suitable Ways to Overcome these Limitations?

There are two best ways to turn a website into an app. They are as follows:

Native App Development

If you don’t have any issue with the money and want to develop an app for a specific platform such as Android or iOS, then you should go with this approach.

Hybrid App Development

If you have limited costs & resources, but want to launch the app for both the platform simultaneously, Android & iOS, then go with this approach. It allows sharing the same code for both operating systems.
