What do you all think about the future of mobile apps with respect to Native, PWA’s, and web apps?
I’m about 50% of the way through an iOS course. I’m thinking about quitting because conceptually, it just seems inefficient that anybody should build both an iOS and an Android app. Also, I just don’t like a lot of things I’m seeing from Apple and (to a lesser extent) Google.
Originally, I signed up for an iOS course because I think that there are a lot of things you can do with React Native, but there’s a lot of uncertainty over the ability to access certain features such as Face ID, Cameras, and Microphones. Sure, Apple might allow access to the Microphone today, but maybe they shut it off to non-native apps on a Tuesday.
I really like the concept of PWA’s, but it doesn’t seem like the 2 big OS’s will fully embrace them for the foreseeable future for obvious reasons.
Does the uncertainty make it difficult for you to decide where to invest your time in learning new things?
