Microsoft has had a bit of an app problem over the years when it comes to both attracting developers and developers continuing to support the platform. Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) are one of the latest tools out there that Microsoft is going to take advantage of, and that's what we're talking about today in the Windows Central forums.
PWAs aren't just apps we'll be seeing in the Store, though that has already begun for some with Twitter pushing out its PWA as a replacement to its old, forgotten Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app. "Normal" folks will have to wait until the Spring Creators Update to use it, but you can get the same experience right now by using the Microsoft Edge browser.
Windows 10 users can already experience PWAs but it's not entirely clear which services are supporting them. There are ones we do know about, such as Starbucks in the U.S., Uber and Google Maps, but there might be others out there we don't know about. That's where you come in.
If you've already found some great PWAs, hit the forum thread below and let us know what they are!
