Your users have been asking you for years, “Is there an app for X(your website)? I don’t see it in the store.” People want apps from proprietary app stores, not on the free and open web.

Feels like an app (For Real!)

PWA’s were introduced to feel websites like an app, but the url reminds one often, it’s just a website. With hidden url, now your users would feel it like any other app.

Now you can hide url by default. Your users won’t even know it’s a PWA wrapped in APK, thus helps in branding better.

Frequently Asked Questions.

8. How is TWA different from Webview?

There are a few things that make Trusted Web Activities different from other ways to integrate web content with your app:
(source)
1) Content in a Trusted Web activity is trusted — the app and the site it opens are expected to come from the same developer. (This is verified using Digital Asset Links.)
2) Trusted Web activities come from the web: they’re rendered by the user’s browser, in exactly the same way as a user would see it in their browser except they are run fullscreen. Web content should be accessible and useful in the browser first.
3) Browsers are also updated independent of Android and your app — Chrome, for example, is available back to Android Jelly Bean. That saves on APK size and ensures you can use a modern web runtime. (Note that since Lollipop, WebView has also been updated independent of Android, but there are a significant number of pre-Lollipop Android users.)
4) The host app doesn’t have direct access to web content in a Trusted Web activity or any other kind of web state, like cookies and localStorage. Nevertheless, you can coordinate with the web content by passing data to and from the page in URLs (e.g. through query parameters, custom HTTP headers, and intent URIs.)
5) Transitions between web and native content are between activities. Each activity (i.e. screen) of your app is either completely provided by the web, or by an Android activity

9. Is this safe? Do we know it doesn’t inject code?

This is completely safe and there is no way which we can inject code to TWA. To add to more credibility, we are giving away the source code for the generated APK as well.

10. I am lost. What did you say this tool does?

It convert PWA to APK file in just few clicks. It works using TWA, which promises availability of PWA’s on Google Playstore. Using PWA2APK, you can convert existing PWA’s to APK file, which inturn can be uploaded to Google Playstore.

11. What are some examples of PWA?

Some PWA examples includes Tinder, Starbucks, MapsGo and many more.

12. Why do I find address bar in APK uploaded?

This is because you haven’t verified properly. Read more on how to successfully have full screen PWA Android app experience.

13. What was the inspiration behind PWA2APK?

The Medium article by Maximiliano Firtman was the starting point. The article was bit lengthy but at the end, he quoted “I really want to see a tool to enter our PWA’s URL and get an APK from it.” Thus our team decide to spent 2 whole days to make this into reality.
