You should try capacitorjs.com/

It works by "wrapping" your app in a web-view and "generates" the needed code for it to run on IOS and Android. Its very easy to use, very friendly and you should be done in a couple of minutes.

Take a note that this way your app is not going to be NATIVE, because It would run inside a WebView inside the mobile OS, but performance would not be a concern, taking in mind that you want to transfer the existing web behavior in a mobile app.

Now, if you want to add more native-like functionalities or add CPU intensive logic, you should look elsewhere, but if using an existing web app on mobile is what you ask, you won't have any problems!!

Take care!

I am already working on it, but what I want is to upload my application to play store and app store, I need a native application to be able to publish it on these two platforms.

I got you buddy :) codecanyon.net/item/prime-web-conv...

There's probably also free alternatives, but this one works great and has a lot of good reviews. Definitely worth the $7 (currently on discount) price ;)

Thanks for your recommendation, I'll take a look at those scripts.
