PWAs, rather. Microsoft has not had much luck when it comes to official clients on Windows 10, but third-party developers are not sitting still now that the Progressive Web Apps platform is here.
This is a whole new category of applications, support for which was recently added in the OS.
With the upcoming Spring Creators Update, that is.
And while the jury is still out on whether these will be the next big thing for Microsoft, a number of neat looking PWAs have already made their way out on the Microsoft Store. Led by Twitter, we now have well over a dozen such apps working and ready for download.
Now you can add two more to the list.
YouTube and Uber are the two newest applications that have appeared on the apps repository, developed, in fact, by Pladoo Interactive — which is to say that they have definitely not been sanctioned by either company.
According to the app description, they are part of what is being called the Windows Revival Project that aims to bring apps to Windows 10 Mobile using PWA or even as native applications.
Noble intentions, but given how things have gone in the past, it remains to be seen whether these applications actually last on the Microsoft Store. Google has never really supported the Windows platform, while Uber actually ended support for its Windows 10 app a few months ago.
In any case, you can take a look at these applications using the links below.
