For a long time I've resisted the idea of publishing Pinafore to an app store, but I'm starting to reconsider. https://mastodon.technology/@pinafore/102938886400335485
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.
The Wandering Shop is a Mastodon instance initially geared for the science fiction and fantasy community but open to anyone. We want our 'local' timeline to have the feel of a coffee shop at a good convention: tables full of friendly conversation on a wide variety of topics. We welcome everyone who wants to participate, so long as you're willing to abide by our code of conduct.
