This is similar to a traditional app but is in the category of Progressive Web App.
What's different from at traditional app?
The new app operates within a browser instead. It combines the best of web concepts and mobile apps. This will offer a one-of-a-kind user experience.
Does this App function offline?
Yes, just like a native app. Upon first launching the app, the content is cached, thus allowing later usage offline. The native app relies on iOS or Android’s SDK features while the new Soundrolling app relies on the service worker set up in the browser.
The new Soundrolling app will work offline in all browsers except for Safari.
This app updates Faster!
With the old app when i uploaded for a Play Store publication it took about 2 hours.
The iOS version of the app is built and published at the same time but In order to ensure that the App complies with the App Store guidelines, it needs Apple to manually review it by a human.
Apple usually take several days to review my app and publish it in the App Store.
The new Soundrolling App will be accessible in just an hour or so after its been updated.
Less Storage Space Needed
The last native version of the app was over 40MB which in app terms of a fair bit compared to less than 200KB at the moment.
OVER 95% SMALLER! And you can still view most of it offline!
