I want to know if we can convert our web application to a mobile application using appcelerator
our web application uses a lot of php. we use mysql for our database.
the mobile application will need to be a native mobile app because we plan to use most of the phone's apis. and the mobile app will need to be always online to obtain status updates.
what's your suggestion and comments?
For the mobile app you'd have to rewrite your stuff from PHP to JS and use SQLite instead of MySQL.
Both things aren't that big of a deal (depending on the size of your web app ;)), the only problem can be when you use specific MySQL functions that are not (directly) available to SQLite.
Yea, you could do it fine. You just have to use webviews instead. You can also load local html files
