App-making piracy is a problem that often new app-makers aren’t aware of. It’s easy to make any website into an app, but if you don’t own it, you could face legal action if you try to pass it off as your own.
Be very clear not to claim to own content that you don’t own. If you didn’t create the site, your app should be labelled as the unofficial app and should refer to the original content.
If you’re not sure if you can use someone else’s content in your app, send them an email and ask.
