What is the story on converting a website to a mobile app.  I see prices from  $45.00 to $1200.00.  Is this something that I can do myself? If so what do I need.   Or do I need to pay someone?  If I do.  Do they control my app?  Thanks.

Thank you.  I will look at these.  I am seeing all of these sites that are using wrappers to do this.
