    Use PWAs or even webapps to bypass the app store if possible. Bunch of crooks

  2. Bosonian says

    Has there been any more improvements in PWA support on iOS since this video made?

  3. 155 Degrees says

    Could anybody help me as to how to have an app which has native code plus web view to load webpages and both to interact with each other. Like sign in web view and use the signed in user info later to be able to work with native code too.

  4. Vertex DCW says

    i am having trouble in downloading a PWA using Chrome in iOS? is it supported only in Safari in iOS?

  5. Mathew Wang says

    Can we do background video yet?

  6. Abraham Yepremian says

    Does anyone know how to add push notifications to my PWA on iOS? I’ve been using firebase cloud messaging for push notifications but it is not working on iOS.

  7. Zsolt Szabo says

    Finally safari will keep the state. This was frustrating and I reported it to apple. Hey Google, you are pushing PWAs without the ability of Adsense "auto ads". It kind of makes no sense building PWAs if you monetise via Adsense, since there is no way to implement auto ads in them.

  8. Peter Húbek says

    Pwa sucks. Period

  9. Cesar Martinez says

    Kinda misleading video title. You can do better than "PWAs for iOS"

  10. Capitol says

    Quick question, we've considered doing a PWA app, but for our purpose we need to resize photos before uploading to a server. Is there a way somehow to implement client side resizing of images before they are uploaded?

  11. Horváth Bálint says

    Bit out of context question, but still related to Apple. Is there a way to install pwa-s on mac os, like on windows? (or does safari support the beforeinstallprompt some way?) I really struggle to find the answer. Thanks

  12. david Siegel says

    No can have android features that I phone doesn't have

  13. Osaetin Daniel says

    Still waiting for the Web Share Target to be Implemented so PWA's can receive shared content from other apps

  14. Darwin Medina says

    So you're telling me that Apple can be able to put a extremely sophisticated machine learning on a phone and can't able to make works PWA on Safari, come on this look pretty intensional we are not fools

  15. Ben Hayat says

    With that accent, it would help to speak slower to get the point across.Seems like these days everyone is rushed to speak so fast, that the mission is totally lost.Take your F* time and deliver the message properly.

  16. Fronbasal says

    video starts"Wait, is he German?" – "Thomas Steiner" – Ah, ja!

  17. Jerry Gagliano says

    Ok what about push notifications?

  18. Kono Paku says

    For real app, any company can’t wait for IOS support and it is difficult to ask all users to update into latest safari.The concept of PWA sounds fantastic in theory, but it is most like alpha and beta status of IOS in reality,. I am afraid that lots of developers lose their time on application for PWA in iOS.

  19. Abhishek Kumar says

    Thank u for this awesome video

  20. Ojasvi Singh 786 says


  21. Nadeem Shaikh says

    Great work but I think you should talk a little slower and clearer 🙂

  22. Go Fudge YourSelves says

    Do something like The Flutter's Boring Show

  23. Artem Tikhomirov says

    WPA on mobile platforms is a slow buggy gimmick. Save your users some brain cells – invest in a native app. It’s seriously not that hard.

  24. Tobias Järvelöv says

    Loving the PWA videos! Thank you!

  25. dasten123 says

    This PWA stuff looks really amazing but I've read some nasty stuff regarding the support on those damn Apple-devices ;( Seems like Apple is intentionally holding the technology back… That's really sad!I'm currently building a web-app for unfortunately mostly iPhone users and I would absolutely love to make use of some PWA features but I'm unsure if that is a good idea since stuff won't work well on those shitty phones :/

  26. Jérôme Pott says

    Thanks for this video ?

  27. Chris Enitan says

    Web Share is now on iOS PWA! That just made my day.

  28. Denis TRUFFAUT says

    Interesting subject !

  29. Kevin Sheppard says

    This is just what I needed to see. I've been biting my nails over the huge disparity in PWA support between iOS and Android, now I feel a bit more relieved.

  30. Abdullah Sari says

    Apple is never going to fully support it just because of the App Store (yes I know TWA is a thing, but still they won't do it)

  31. Olle Hellman says

    Love the PWA content

  32. Joni Rautiainen says

    Still no notifications supported right?

  33. mohammed wasib says

    Finally…apple is finally adopting PWA's. I always had a problem with PWA's in ios wherein it would redirect to safari for login and auth and the PWA would not receive the auth token, making it unusable in ios
