    Does anyone else remember the site "fullscreen.me" that went around a while back that allowed you to turn any site into a fullscreen "app" for your phone?

    I thought it would be handy for Google Maps, but it only makes old iPhone resolution apps, not iPhone 5 sized.

    Anyone found a way of getting the desired results for an iPhone 5?

    I don't have my iPhone 5 yet but I've been using this for several years, and it fills the screen on the 3rd generation iPad so I assume it will work. Basically, just go to the web app in safari, clear the URL from the address bar, then copy and paste this entire code into the address bar and hit Go. Then save the page to your home screen.

    javascript:var meta=document.createElement('meta');
    meta.name='apple-mobile-web-app-capable';meta.content='yes';document.getElementsByTagName('head').item(0).appendChild(meta);alert('You may now add this web app to the home screen.');

    That worked perfect, thanks! Looks very close to a native app now!
