Re: I've made a forecast web app

This is a terminology discussion. On my PC it is a web address:

https://igetwind.com/

When I search the Play Store for IGETWIND I get no results.

It's a web page which provides weather data with a user input location. Presentation is user friendly.

Re: I've made a forecast web app



I should add, that I like igetwind for the information it provides

And wasn't exactly complaining about the terminology, I was mainly wondering if it was eventually going to be converted into what I consider an app to be on my iPad

You will see this more and more. Google is pushing hard for the development of Web-apps (they call them PWA's) and besides a few things, you can do the same today in a web-app as you can with a native app.
They can even be made to run off-line so you don't need internet connection, if an app has any useful use in that scenario. (It happens).
There are many reasons why this development is good for consumers, and I see a lot of app customers becoming aware of this. I am in the business of app development, and more and more customers do not want to develop apps for multiple platforms anymore. The ever changing conditions and moneytary terms of app-stores is also a driver for web-apps.
If a web-app is made correctly, it can be "Installed" on any device and the look and feel for the user will be similar to a native- app, with no browser address-bar visible etc.
I could go on for hours, I will let my self out now

Re: I've made a forecast web app

Thanks for your question and answers!

I did refer to https://igetwind.com as a web app simply because it's mostly a software into a web page.

As for a IOS or android app I am not currently working on that. Igetwind interface is mobile friendly and you can add a link to it on your device as an app icon (add link from your browser tab where igetwind is open). Thanks.
