I have been developing functionality that runs under regular browsers, based on HTML/CSS/JS. I'd like to port it an app format and I have some basic initial questions. I am a newbie when it comes to app development.

Obviously, Icenium packages the developer-provided code, images, etc., with special purpose browsers to run on the phones/pads. How is the page size determined? My code involves multiple HTML files, each corresponding to a page of a different size. Is it possible to cause an auto-scale so that all pages fit neatly on the device screen, without resizing, scroll bars, etc.?

Also, is it possible to force the device to stick to one orientation only and not allow switches to landscape as device orientation changes?

Thanks in advance.

Hey George.
The best thing you can do is make sure you use a Mobile UI Framework like KendoUI or jQuery Mobile. 
They are both built from the ground up to support css responsive design so they are huge time-savers.
Luckily Icenium comes with built-in templates for both so you can get up and running pretty quickly with your mobile-hybrid app.

Regarding the device orientation lock. You can specify that on your project properties on Icenium

Hope this helps.
