- Web apps on OSX? 6 answers
How do I export a website to an app in safari? There is this feature in iOS 7 called 'save to home screen', I'm looking for something similar on OS X.
The only way I've ever seen this done on OS X is via the Fluid app. Fluid is just a WebKit wrapper around a specific URL and without the browser navigation tidbits in the windowing. It presents the website as an "app" but it's still running in a browser window, albeit one with fewer decorations.
It's free to use but for $4.99 you can get some features that make it a little cooler. Most importantly you can get per-instance cookie stores so you don't cross-pollute your apps.
I used to use it for Fogbugz and it was alright. Not great, but decent. And I used to get all kinds of questions about the Fogbugz icon in my dock from my colleagues. It's still possible to click away from the main app in the Fluid-ized version of it, leaving you on an unintended web page with not a lot of nav options to get back to the main app. That was probably my biggest gripe with it.
Not clear if op is asking about iOS or OS X. Ian C answered for OS X. In iOS, AFIK all that's possible is to place an icon on the home screen, which is simply a shortcut to open the web page in Safari.
