Hi,

We have a special mobile version of our site that we would like to promote in the android marketplace.  The "app" would effectively be a shortcut to the website, but you would be able to download it and have an icon for it, just like any other app.

Is this possible?  If so, can you link me to instructions?  I was not able to find any info searching google.

Thanks,
Jonah

Or simply make an app which only starts the browser:
