Then again, you’re using a beta…

My team is using Ionic 4 with Capacitor in a production app. The application uses image caching, offline data storage, local video/audio recording, offline PDF viewers, and e-learning support.

Hate seeing all this “can’t” and “not ready” talk. If you put in the work, Ionic is ready. We’ve plugged bugs, ran temporary forks for stencil components that had bugs; ran our own implementation of infinite scroll lists, etc. The core platform is ready.

I’m not as certain as you, but at the moment, it looks that way to me too. I’ve been using parts of the core with Ionic 3/Stencil literally for months. Finally transitioning to Ionic 4 full on, no problems yet.
