Applications are dead, long live PWAs!
June 01, 2021
The average household has over 10 connected devices. Far gone are the days when your entire life could stand on your computer or your phone. Like most people, you probably jump from phone, to tablet, to laptop and back, sometimes juggling incompatible apps and platforms. How often were you comfortably settled on the couch, using your laptop, when you needed to do a quick little thing in an app that’s only available on your phone?
To make your life a little bit easier, we embraced the future of apps, namely a technology named Progressive Web Applications, or PWA for short. Unlike traditional apps which have become bulky, slow, and somewhat blind to the reality of our device-hopping lifestyles, Anywish is a fully-fledged, next-generation app that lives on the Web, and can be used and installed directly from your browser.
Effectively, this means that Anywish is available on a vast array of devices and operating systems, with the same experience. You can access it from your iPad, Windows PC, and Android phone, but also from your smart TV and refrigerator (should you own one). And once installed, it’s quickly accessible from your home screen or desktop, just like any traditional app.
PWAs install and load faster than traditional apps, and there is no need to fiddle around with app stores. Updates are also seamless, automated, and quicker since you only download what has changed, rather than redownloading the whole thing, every time.
By being on the Web, Anywish also doesn’t need to be installed if you only use it occasionally on a secondary device. Simply head to anywish.app in your browser, add a few gift ideas and close the tab when you’re done. There’s no need to wait for installation.
Anywish will also make efficient use of the storage space on your devices, always using just the amount it needs, automatically clearing the space it occupies when you’re running short, and instantly reinstalling itself when you need it.
Why not give it a try for yourself? If you haven’t already, sign up for Anywish and install it on your phone, tablet, or computer. You’ll be ready to capture gift ideas and share them in no time!
