    I have purchased a new tablet (Amazon Fire 7) specifically to run an app for my work. However, the app has now updated and now defaults to webview.

    I have made contact with the tech team and they say it will run web view on tablets and only app view on phones. The web view on this small tablet is useless! Very fiddly having to zoom and scroll etc.

    My question is...can I trick the app into displaying app view?

    Thanks in advance ☺

    Webview has nothing to do with zooming in let me explain what webview is:

    A “webview” is a browser bundled inside of a mobile application producing what is called a hybrid app. Using a webview allows mobile apps to be built using Web technologies (HTML, JavaScript, CSS, etc.) but still package it as a native app and put it in the app store.

    Your problem is a issue with the system software not registering your gestures to zoom in, is it possible they have a option in setting for zoom?

    I just want it run the same as it used to before the update. I also have the app running on my phone but this is not an option to use my personal phone.

    Is there anything I can change on the tablet to make it think it is running on a mobile phone?
