As many of you may have seen, Progressive Web Apps are going to be a major focus of Ionic’s going forward. We want to help Ionic developers ship great apps to the App Stores, but also take the same code and deploy them to the web to maximize distribution and discoverability. We think this is a unique strength of Ionic that native SDKs are missing today, and want to make sure Ionic developers can maximize that benefit.
This is even more important today as Google starts to flex its muscles in mobile web search by lowering the ranking of sites that aren’t mobile friendly, as well as penalizing app store interstitials. They’ve also started publishing data on how app store interstitials contributed to 69% of mobile web traffic completely abandoning the page (without downloading the app!)
With that in mind, we are calling for Ionic developers interesting in building a Progressive Web App with Ionic to come forward. There are some interesting marketing and promotional opportunities available, including conference, blog, newsletter, and social promotion.
If you’re building an awesome PWA with Ionic, let us know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a little description of what you’re building and the company you work for, or by leaving a reply below.
Thanks, we can’t wait to see what you’re building!
