For a long time I've resisted the idea of publishing Pinafore to an app store, but I'm starting to reconsider. mastodon.technology/@pinafore/

PWAs are great, but I worry they're low on discoverability. On iOS you have to dig into the settings to add it to the home screen, and I bet 99% of iOS users do not know that this feature even exists. Plus, push notifications do not work in iOS PWAs.

Even on Android, I wonder how many people tap the "house" button to add it to their home screen.

I did. Then I realized that seeing it there every time I looked at my mobile contributed to my spending far more time on here than is healthy for me. Something I'm prone to doing anyway. I really appreciate using Pinafore as a web client, so I have to want to use it and point my browser at the web address.
