Native Mobile WebViews

Using the Web SDK inside of native mobile WebViews

The Web SDK is designed with cross-platform compatibility in mind, and native mobile WebViews are no exception. There are some things to be aware of before proceeding with a WebView-based integration inside of a mobile application though.

Alert Widgets

Links on Alert widgets will open in a new tab when clicked in a browser. Inside of a WebView though, they may appear not to work unless they are long-pressed. This is because of the <a> element has a target="_blank" attribute on it, which most WebViews do not have a default handler for. Consult the documentation for your WebView implementation to see how this scenario can be handled.
