"Native apps doesn't allow text selection, so mobile PWAs shouldn't." I'm sorry, what?!? I saw there's other people disagreeing as well, but I think it's worth disagreeing... again. :) On top of that there are plenty of great use-cases for text selection and highlighting, especially in education oriented apps.
This... "Native apps doesn't allow text selection, so mobile PWAs shouldn't." is an overly sweeping statement, and I'd be careful with those. :)
Otherwise great article!
I'm sorry but I think that all mobile apps and PWAs SHOULD allow text selection, and I'm stating this explicitly.
Only the meaningful text should be selectable tho – there is no need to select the button text or something like that. Article text or message are the entirely different story – disallowing selection there is a bad practice.
That's true and I agree, only content should be selectable in terms of text. I thought you meant disabling it all over the place. Good to know we're on the same page! :)
Edited the article. You're right – my initial explanation is pretty unclear. Thanks again
