Microsoft suffered a big setback in its efforts to boost the
market share of Windows Phone and the number of must-have apps
in its Windows 10 Store. The company hoped to motivate
third-party app developers to embrace the new Windows 10 app
platform with Project Astoria and Centennial but nothing
worked in the company’s favour.
Microsoft is aware of the much-discussed app gap problem with
Windows 10 devices and the company hasn’t given up yet. The
Redmond-tech giant Microsoft is trying to fill that ‘gap’ by
publishing the Progressive Web Apps (PWA) in the Store.
Microsoft recently announced that it will use its search engine
Bing to crawl, index the PWAs and publish them in the Windows
Store with the owner’s permission.
Microsoft quietly published new Progressive Web Apps
(PWAs) in the Store for Windows 10 devices. It’s a new series
of Progressive Web Apps and it recovers a wide range of
categories. It’s likely that Microsoft will be able to fill the
app gap to some extent with its Progressive Web Apps.
The progressive web apps Rand

and Rocketmiles are now
available for download in the Microsoft Store (formerly known
as Windows Store).
The PWA is a web app, and it can be installed on any device
including Android, Windows and Chromebook. The users would
never have to worry about the maintenance and features of PWAs
as everything is automatic, which means that there’s no need to
head to the Microsoft Store to get new versions of PWAs. You
just need to re-launch and wait a few seconds to see new
features and content.
