[feature request] Make Epicollect5 a Progressive Web App

August 5, 2019 at 3:28pm

Let's use this chat as an issue manager: here is a feature request.

Adding a service worker and configuring the webapp to being a Progressive Web App would enable users to install the app on their smartphone without having to go through an app store. This may ease the installation of the app and lead to more people contributing data to our forms.

Hi, Epicollect5 is already available as a responsive web app, it works on any mobile browser. Please read https://epicollect5.gitbooks.io/epicollect5-user-guide/content/adding-data.html

We reckon having both a responsive web app and a mobile app makes a progressive web app redundant.
