Appscope is a new appstore that makes it easy to for the users. Appscope is a store for Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) which work in your browser, requiring no installation and offering a native experience so it’s almost impossible to tell you’re actually just using a website.
Appscope is essentially a handy directory of PWAs that are grouped into categories, and it’s designed to resemble an app store replete with short descriptions, screenshots, and some technical info for its listings.
What users need to do is head to appsco.pe in their mobile browser, rifle through the currently short list of apps available, and launch them from their description pages.
You’ll find social networks like Instagram and Twitter, tools for managing your time and shrinking image files, simple games, and educational resources to help you improve your vocabulary and learn about the natural world, and a board to track the prices of your preferred cryptocurrencies. If you like the PWA enough to want to use it again, you can add a shortcut to your home screen for easy access later on.
Well the most good thing about the PWA is that they don’t take up any room on your device that’s great if you’re low on storage or are using an older model. Native apps not only take up space when you install them, but they also store data locally, which can eat into your limited storage. You might also want to avoid installing apps if you find yourself using them too much.
Appscope itself is a PWA, so you don’t need to install it either. Now it is an great option for the users who have low storage or who just want to test an app before installing it and many more. It doesn’t have a very good design yet but it will surely get better in coming time.
So if you are an Android or iOS visit appsco.pe in your browser and give a try.
