    I work for a large contractor in the Midwest and have been developing a comprehensive web application for estimating, tracking, etc, etc. The app is coming along nicely, I am a certified Apple Developer but for the sake of provisioning much faster and rolling out changes effectively I have chosen to run the application from the web for now.

    I ran across a few snippets of HTML that could be added to a page(s) that removed the Safari scroll bars, address bar, etc, and allowed for the use of a custom icon. This gives the user the feel of a native app. I cannot seem to find this information again.

    If anyone knows what commands to use I would really appreciate it.

    Thank you in advance!
