Not exactly sure what you mean. Are you trying to have an app access a website via http calls or something? Or are you wanting a full fledged app that simply uses a web-view and displays all of its content from the web?

The answer to both is "yes". A good example is the Netflix app. It is a completely web-based HTML 5 application that is designed to mimic iOS look and feel
