More Progressive Web Apps (PWA) published by Microsoft come to the Store
Another wave of Progressive Web Apps is now available in the Microsoft Store, published by Microsoft itself.
Following the first wave of Progressive Web Apps (PWA) to hit the Microsoft Store earlier in April, Microsoft has published another batch. In all, there are six new apps being added to the 14 previously published by the Microsoft Store.
Here's a look at what's new:
- Subway (opens in new tab)
- Trip Check (opens in new tab)
- HealthyWay (opens in new tab)
- Tom's Guide (opens in new tab)
- The A.V. Club (opens in new tab)
- Decider (opens in new tab)
These PWAs are part of a new push by Microsoft to get more apps on the Microsoft Store. Microsoft is relying on two ways to do this: developers can submit PWAs themselves, or the Microsoft Store will automatically index quality PWAs with the Bing web crawler and add them to the Microsoft Store. The benefit, as Microsoft explained in a recent blog post, is that users get access to app-like experiences while lightening the load on developers.
Progressive Web Apps (PWA): What they are, and what they mean for Microsoft
Over time, and following the release of the Windows 10 Redstone 4 update, we'll likely see more and more PWAs hit the Microsoft Store over time. We Expect to hear more about PWAs at Microsoft's Build 2018 conference in May as well.
Thanks for the tip, Brent!
