Are there any plans to turn WikiTree into a PWA app?
A Progressive Web App is a web site that looks and behaves like a mobile app. Rather than dedicate a team to develop the web site, and or hope someone else develops a Android or iOS (Apple) app, WikiTree developers could make the site as a PWA app.
I doing this, it allows a coherent and uniform presentation across every device that the site reaches. It also allows WikiTree to take advantage of the features available to mobile devices, or even newer features of modern desktop/laptop/tablet OSes, such as Windows 10.
More importantly, it would help facilitate a much needed overhaul of the UI. If no one has mentioned, WikiTree is really laid-out unintuitively to the point of being confusing. You constantly have to search, and more importantly the sight doesn't function well in the touch world.
It still boggles my mind that you can't unclick a radio button, let alone the fact that they are being used, and you have to go into a spouse page to indicate that the person isn't married instead of a check box. However, those are some of the minor ones.
This would also eliminate the need for a full, open API. It could remain a read-only API, with feature suggestions or new features, created by third-party developers, added in much like they are today or in some cases, even more tightly integrated.
