How to Turn Any Website into an Android App in Seconds
MakeUseOf has a post: Android has a problem. The Play Store is filled with apps that are notorious for invasive permissions, and many apps keep running in the background even when not in use, draining your device’s battery. The culprits are some of the biggest and most popular apps out there. Facebook is definitely ruining your Android. Snapchat, Google+, and others constantly work in the background even if you’ve shut the app, silently guzzling battery.
But while Facebook has TinFoil and Swipe, what can you do about your other apps? A new tool called Hermit is the answer. Hermit is essentially a browser, much like Chrome or Firefox. Its job is to take any website you point it to and turn the website into an app that resides on your homescreen.
NOTE: this is a new app, and free at present. It may change to charging for the app later.
