    Hi all

    I know that this was asked before, but he one I found only pointed the person to the android sdk and documentation and I'm sre that there must be an easier way for doing what I wanna do.

    OK, so I have a mobile site I built specifically for his purpose, which is sitting online as we speak, but I want to put it in an app.. so basically I want to have something with a browser in it that will only load my site (hiding teh URL off course creating the illusion of an app).

    Is there any way to do this quickly and easily with having to install eclipse and all that? Maybe a freestanding application that can just "frame" a site like that?

    I hope I'm not asking too much..

    It is possible to build an app that simply frames a web browser. However, you would still need to install a development environment to create the rest of the app - the icon, any menus, the version information, style data, etc. as well as digitally signing the app.
