NativeWrap

**NOTE: MARSHMALLOW USERS**
It seems NativeWrap can't install applications it has wrapped on Android Marshmallow. We are looking into it, and will come up with a fix soon. Until then, the application will be unavailable on Android Marshmallow.

NativeWrap is an easy to use app that provides a third alternative for accessing the mobile Web. Currently, you can either download the "app" or use your device's Web browser. Both have security and privacy drawbacks. NativeWrap puts the user in control of permissions. It also eliminates cross-site tracking by having a separate cookie store for each custom app.

Key Features:
- Pins the WebApp to the domain in the URL, each such NativeWrapped app has a separate cookie store, preventing cross-site attacks.
- SSL Pinning support.
- Integrates with the HTTPSEverywhere ruleset to provide support for forcing HTTPS on WebApps.

Instructions:
1. Visit the desired URL in a Web browser on the device.
2. Use browser options to "SHARE" the page/URL.
3. Select NativeWrap from the list of options in the Chooser.
4. Customize the target app name & permissions.
5. Choose the "Common origin" option to allow apps with the same second level subdomain (i.e. "google.com" in "accounts.google.com" & "mail.google.com") to operate in the target app.
6. Select "Make APK".

IMPORTANT SECURITY NOTE: When "wrapping" a URL, the "Unknown Sources" security setting must be enabled. The UI will navigate you to the settings page. Immediately disable "Unknown Sources" after wrapping the URL.

Permissions:
- NativeWrap only requires the INTERNET permission, to update the HTTPSEverywhere ruleset.

NativeWrap currently allows the user to customize a limited set of permissions for target apps, since our primary goal is to provide a privacy preserving alternative to highly overprivileged apps. Find more about NativeWrap here: http://research.csc.ncsu.edu/security/nativewrap
