  • Yeah PWAs would have been cool to have on a you know, mobile platform with a large app gap, but oh well...
  • Ha Ha...HOW TRUE.   
  • And would still be cool on an upcoming mobile device. What would not have been that good, is to have them on a device that was meant to be killed off to save resources.
  • Yeah, I do actually agree with that. I didn't mean that the new device shouldn't exist. I was just wishing that this could be on my dead phone as well in the meantime as i probably won't be able to afford the new device right away as it will probably end up being a full 2 in 1 device price.
  • Did MS said it wouldn't come to WM? They told us we would have some of the RS4 and RS5 APIs in our RS3 builds, besides, won't they be UWP apps availlable on the store? I still hope it will come, but even if it doesn't, right now, PWAs do run way better than common web sites.  
  • The way I see it. Just because PWAs are the stuff that could save Microsoft's mobile efforts, I don't think Microsoft is capable of doing so. PWAs do not only mean that Microsoft is ready to launch a mobile platform without the app gap. They mean that anybody is capable of. And by anybody I mean anybody, who is capable of putting together a platform of any kind with a browser, and not mess up on the provided services side, that Microsoft had proven to do so so many times. Let's face it. Microsoft platform is not a mess because of the app gap. It is a mess because of whatever is available as 1st-party app is useless in many ways many times.
