A "webviewbounce" option can be set to fix an app's viewable area in place on the iOS screen,
making it so that users cannot drag it and move it off the side of the screen. A similar setting
is needed for Windows Phone.

Currently, even if the viewport size is set to the device screen dimensions and the scale
is fixed at 1.0, Windows Phone users can still drag the app's viewport which results in a
bounce effect similar to what's seen on iOS when the webviewbounce option isn't set to false.

The Windows Phone WebBrowser control doesn't directly expose a property that lets you eliminate
the bounce, but the desired result can be acheived with a small amount of wrapper code around
the control. This would need to be implemented within Cordova. The following article explains
how to do it:

Justification: the ability to eliminate the bounce effect is important for app developers
who want to create an experience that's similar to a native app. This is not currently possible
on Windows Phone.
