In this video, Max Firtman explains the technology central to mobile web development: the webview. He identifies the webviews available today and shows you how to properly configure them for optimal performance and security. You’ll explore the differences between UIWebView and WKWebView on iOS, compare Android webviews, examine available third party tools, learn how to use an embedded webview, and practice debugging techniques. “Mastering Webviews” is part of Firtman’s Mobile Web App Development Video Learning Path.
