Developers could soon port their existing Chrome apps to Android and iOS. The Next Web’s Emil Protalinski is reporting that Google is in the process of creating a toolkit allowing developers to create Chrome apps for iOS and Android as well as port existing Chrome apps.

According to the report, “The toolkit will help developers create Android and iOS hybrid native apps with Chrome app polyfills, through Apache Cordova. The steps include modifying for mobile design, fixing bugs, working around limitations, and of course, testing.

After all the work is done, Google says the apps will be good enough to publish to both Google Play and Apple’s App Store. The requirements suggest Android 4.x will be supported initially, although Cordova could work with Android 2.2 and 2.3 as well. iOS support is still marked as “TBA” but development has already started.”
