That's exactly the sort of thing the browser widget in LiveCode 8 allows you to do, and it really opens the door to all sorts of possibilities.
And, it works on all platforms, not just Android.
Once the Windows bug is fixed, it will get even better:
You can create any sort of polished UI that can be accomplished using web views, and use Angular, Bootstrap, and other established web-based UI frameworks to speed up the process.
You can place your UI code on a server and update it on the fly.
In short, the browser widget is a brilliant, much-welcomed feature.
