    So I have all of the files that are used to make a certain app work online: I have the HTML, the PNGs (images), and the JS (javascript).

    I want to make it work as a native app that doesn't require being online. How do I do this?

    I've confirmed that everything is in the right directory structure to work, by running the application successfully on my desktop without needing to be online. Now I want to port it over to the touch.

    I also have a button icon file to use for it.

    Is there a way to put a local URL into the .plist file that tells the device what to do when the button is pressed? I basically need to tell the device to load a local webpage that is on the machine, not online.

    Do I use localhost:// instead of http:// or something? Are there other changes needed in the plist file to get it to work right?

    Also, do I need an actual "application' file or can I just have these HTML pages and the plist and default and button image files and be good to go?

    Thanks for any help.
