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.
