Every web app should be a progressive web app tbh.

    In your dreams maybe, not in reality.

    @010001111 Practically speaking, it would be very difficult to implement. But ideally, if someone is making a new web app, they might as well make it progressive.

    No. Every app should have no web in it.

    Sometimes I'm actually annoyed by them. When adding to the homescreen, the user should be able to activate/deactivate PWA. Ex. Where I live the busses, metros, etc. All have their schedules on the company's website which is a PWA, but if I try to ex. Add the page with the bus scheduled for the bus closest to me to my home screen as a shortcut it doesn't work. If I open the PWA app it loads the main/start page not the specific schedule page!

    @shakur Introducing that possibility as well as complying with all other requirements for a PWA. This will make the user experience a lot better with the option of installing the app either on the phone or the desktop.

    Dev.to is the perfect example.
