Yes, it could be longer, but it’s not!
Let me start out by saying that this isn’t a 9–hour, in–depth, comprehensive course on Angular. Instead, it’s a no–nonsense guide to getting your Angular app hosted as a Progressive Web Application (PWA) as quickly as possible, and with a minimum amount of fluff.
You’ll thank me for not wasting your time.
Forget the App Stores!
They are too expensive: While Google only charges a one–time $25 fee to join, Apple charges $99/year just for the privilege of hosting your apps there. And even if you are willing to pay, those companies still have veto power over the content of your application.
They are too complicated: Have you seen what’s required to submit an application to either Apple or Google?
Updates are painful: Each update to a mobile App Store requires going through the entire submission problem
You risk arbitrary rejection: When submitting to an app store, it is possible that a faceless stranger might reject your app. I actually had an app rejected by Apple because, it provided no user value. Ouch.
It’s time to say no.
As a software developer, you want your apps to reach as many people as possible, right? Which platform should you target to reach the most users possible? How about all of them? Progressive Web Apps, or PWAs, let you do just that… and without paying Google or Apple to be in their stores.
