By Sam_crazy

Just 2 days ago, our most awaited MIUI 10 was unveiled with many features. One of those features was Progressive Web Apps support. But the thing is, have you heard of progressive web apps? You're probably wondering what a Progressive Web App is. Well, It's been a few months now since Progressive Web Apps have made their way into the web and mobile domains, but are you fully aware of all the advantages and benefits they offer? By the end of this thread, I'm sure you'll know everything about it. So, let's get started.

What Is Progressive Web Apps(PWA)?
Simply put, progressive web apps are a combination of best of the two worlds – websites and mobile applications. Progressive web apps combine the goodness of mobile apps in websites. They basically are websites with high conversion rates of mobile apps. Thus, a user doesn’t need to download them from the app store, but can simply browse them on their browsers.

Progressive web apps are a somewhat new and emerging concept, bridging the gap between what is currently possible with websites and mobile apps. Promising offline capabilities, improved speed, and performance compared to both apps and websites as key selling points.

LYNQ: Location Tracking Even When Cell Phones Fail
By Mohammad Enayat

If you’ve ever been hiking, or gone to a music festival or state fair, you know how easy it is to lose track of your friends. If you've ever tried to find your friends at these places, you know how terrible cell phones can be at tracking them down. Even if you could hear what they're saying over the noisy crowd, you'd still have a lot of a time trying to figure out just which tree they're next to, or exactly what kind of red t-shirt they're wearing. Apps like Find My Friends or Google Maps won't do much good in this scenario either. Lynq is a gadget that fixes this problem with an ultra-simple premise: it simply tells you how far and in what direction your friends are, no data connection required.

What is it?

The palm-sized device is as simple as can be: there’s only one button, and the sole purpose of Lynq is to show the distance and direction of other people in your group via a tiny circular screen. No pins on a map, no coordinates, no turn-by-turn directions. Just a vector accurate to within a couple of feet that works anywhere outdoors. The little blob that points in their direction moves around as quick as a compass and gets smaller as they get farther away, broadening out to a full circle as you get within a few feet.
