Who wants to bet that the apps will be web-based?
- Doesn't run Google Play Store
- Google Maps Go is a PWA
- Proxx is a PWA
- KaiOS is web-based
@nolan Wouldn't under-powered feature phones struggle with web apps? My mid-range Samsung does sometimes and it's got multiple GBs of memory (and cores…)
@nolan Interesting, so presumably this depends on big co’s making “lite” versions of their apps/sites available? Facebook for instance, I remember they have such a thing. There’s the plain HTML version of Gmail as well.
I see Google has invested; makes sense given the size of the market.
I do wonder what that version of Google Maps is like, even the native Android app is enough to cause my phone to stutter.
@ondra Awww, that link bounces to regular Google Maps in Safari on my iPad 😢
