Today, I have some experience regarding both creating a PWA, and testing it.
This website, actually.
Upon opening the website in mobile (Android), it now prompted web to add to home screen, and I said no this time (because the name was wrong.
I also think that Add to Home Screen notification is annoying. (It is much less obtrusive in Desktop, though.)
After correcting the name, I tried to Add to Home Screen, but now the button is missing... It is hidden inside the
vertical three dots.
Benefits I can see from Adding to Home Screen?
- Definitely a benefit on mobile, as the space is limited. No more annoying top bar or bottom bar (in case of Brave browser)
- Can still drag down to refresh. Which is still needed, as this app is still not perfect.
