    Hi guys,

    There is an app I'd like to make for personal use (not going in the app store) but I'm not even sure its possible to make.

    All I want is to grab the snow report from a local ski resort since their page doesn't work well on the iPhone. I'm not sure of what kind of specifics that would entail but before I go digging through the documentation I was wondering if anyone could just tell me if it is possible.

    Here is the page I would try and get the ski report from:

    Thanks so much! I was looking in the wrong area.

    So far the site is working fine as a home button on my iPhones home screen but I know it doesn't always work.

    I have a bit more to learn with iOS anyway before I make that since its been about 2 years since I've touched it.

    You're really going to pay 99$ per year to have an app on your phone that downloads that page periodically in case it's "not available" when you want to read it ?

    Otherwise, you'll need to jailbreak to side load your App onto your device.

    I have a game I have been working on using Unity and I test on the device a lot, this ski report app would just be a quick side project.

    Thanks! I never saw that one before. I guess I don't need to make one after all.
