I can explain more. I want to build an application. It will be an android application. User can install the application in mobile. The user can open the application only if he have the internet connected in this mobile device. For this kind of app , do we call android web application ? Which type of layout should I use to build this app ...Is it Webview layout ? or any other type of layout ? Is it possible to code html webpages and use that webpages to develop this kind of application in android ?

I hope now the question is clear .
