Google Chrome apps could soon be launching on iPhone and Android following the release of a toolchain which allows developers to convert their apps into iOS and Android-compatible formats.

Announced via the Chromium blog, the Google Chrome team announced that they had released an early developer preview of the Apache Cordova keychain which will reportedly convert Chrome apps into an Apple-friendly mass of code.

For those wanting to know the technical details Apache Cordova essentially takes the Chrome app written in HTML, CSS or Java Script and then wraps it in a shell which allows the app to run on iPhone, iPad and Google’s Android operating system.

Chrome apps recently took a major step away from the browser when Google announced that it would allow Chrome apps to not only run offline but also without any of the design features that clearly distinguish them as apps which have to run within a browser.
