The toolchain for running Chrome Apps on mobile is in early developer preview. Feel free to give us your feedback using the Github issue tracker, our Chrome Apps developer forum, on Stack Overflow, or our G+ Developers page.

A Chrome App running on both desktop and mobile


You can run your Chrome Apps on Android and iOS via a toolchain based on Apache Cordova, an open source mobile development framework for building mobile apps with native capabilities using HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

Apache Cordova wraps your application's web code with a native application shell and allows you to distribute your hybrid web app via Google Play and/or the Apple App Store. To use Apache Cordova with an existing Chrome App, you use the cca (c ordova c hrome a pp) command-line tool.
