Bringing your PWA to App Stores
October 7, 2021, 7:10 PM - 7:30 PM (UTC)
App stores are an important distribution channel for Progressive Web Apps; they provide exposure alongside the other apps users are searching for, and have built-in ways to manage purchases and subscriptions. In this talk, BeFunky will share their experience launching their PWA into the Play store, from bundling it for release to integrating with Play payments with the Digital Goods and Payment Request APIs, all while sharing what they’ve learned and what getting into an app store has done for their product.
