How Progressive Web Apps can help you (re)engage your users

With over half of all worldwide internet traffic coming from mobile devices, there’s no doubt about the fact that mobile is king.  However, user behavior seems to be going more towards being fed up with installing applications. Despite the general craze over native applications’ UX, only about a third of smartphone owners download apps each month.  Progressive Web Apps are here to tackle this paradox by solving the application-download burnout issue. The proof is in the 4 points to come.

App Store 4.2.6 rule and app builders

In June, 2017, Apple introduced the 4.2.6 rule into the App Store guidelines. This rule address those using app builders such as GoodBarber.   This new rule was followed by a lot of questions and lack of understanding, from users of app builders as well as app builders themselves. On December 20, 2017, Apple updated the wording of the 4.2.6 rule to provide some clarification.

SMS Notifications : Prices slashed by 90%

With the SMS add-on, you can send notifications via SMS to your Progressive Web App users.  SMS notifications are a reliable and solid way to send messages on a mobile phone. However, there is a significant difference in cost when comparing them to web push notifications.  Kevin and Seb3 worked on a system that allows for the cost of an SMS to be reduced by up to 90% in certain countries. This update is already available for users with the SMS add-on.

Apple & App Store guideline 4.2.6

During the Summer of 2017, the creation and management of iOS apps with GoodBarber was interrupted. This interruption followed a change made by Apple in their guidelines for publishing apps in the App Store. This had no impact on the creation of Android apps and on the creation of Progressive Webs Apps, beside the temporary suspension of V3 / V4 migrations. This post blog retraces the precise chronology of events and specifies the consequences of Apple's new rules on GoodBarber's commercial offer.

Font Management

Some time ago, Lesia, our Product Design Manager, set herself the goal of enhancing the fonts in the Builder. Today, we're letting you in on the series of improvements that have been made in regards to this task. These enrichments are a good example of what I appreciate the most at GoodBarber: the attention to detail and perfection.  Clarity and precision–these are the two words that guided the team in rethinking the way you apply a font to the text in your application.
