    You actually could get something like wptouch, and then create a simple webview app of your site.

    It's the easiest way to go about it.

    A more expensive way would be for you to hire someone to build an app for your site from scratch.

    how do you created a drop down list with each item going to a html link?

    To be honest I am not sure, as I am pretty new to the app making biz myself. If you look at the link to my apps on the android market in my sig you will see that I mostly do soundboards and wallpaper apps.

    I just last week learned how to randomize textviews, and am starting to learn how to make games...kinda.

    make a spinner and have the onclicks link to the page.

    send it to a webview if you want to keep them in the app, or use intents if you want the browser to do it for you.

    first if your wanna create an app 4 ur website ,that means your have to know about jquerymobile and phonegap..before all check some information about mobile website from jquerymobile c om...you cant make or use it with "webview ".. that is bullshit...if only you use webview than all codes that runs the web site into your app that means your app really ll be crashed or forced....
