Web App Publishing

App Distribution

Google will discontinue web hosting support in Google Drive by August 31st, 2016. Please refer to this page: https://googleappsdeveloper.blogspot.com/2015/08/deprecating-web-hosting-support-in.html

We suggest you to distribute your app in the following ways:

1. TouchAppViewer
TouchAppCreator generates the zip file for distribution by default. First, TouchAppCreator uploads app zip file to any cloud storage. Your audience can download TouchAppViewer app (it is free) to import your app zip file.

2. Your web hosting server
TouchAppCreator uploads your app to your web server via FTP.

3. View app in browser
Your audience can unzip the file and double click the main page (index.html) to start your app using any browser.


Site44 is a new way to host your web app using your Dropbox folders. It can be used to replace Dropbox's Public Folder since this public folder is not available for new Dropbox users.

Steps to publish your mobile web app:

1. Go to http://www.site44.com to sign in using your Dropbox account.

2. Create web site using Site44, i.e. <your app name>.site44.com or your custom domain

3. Launch TouchAppCreator

4. Publish your app to the linked Dropbox folder, i.e. /Apps/site44/<your app name>.site44.com/

5. Go to  <your app name>.site44.com
