D.BUZZ PWA Ready for Download and Use!
Great day in the morning D.Buzz Fam.
You asked for it and you got it. https://Next.D.Buzz (testnet) now has a mobile & desktop app you can install and use.
D.Buzz is a progressive company looking towards the future, you are all progressive people as well and sometimes, together we have to unlearn systems and old ideas to move forward into a brighter future.
This brings us to what a PWA is. PWA stands for "Progressive Web App". It's a concept that has been around for a while but is now getting more adoption. A PWA is a combination between native apps (Desktop and Mobile) and Web technology, it is a hybrid between a web page and a mobile or desktop application that will deliver a better overall user experience.
PWA's do not need to be distributed via the Google Play Store or Apple web store. You just go to the web page and install the PWA on your device or desktop. Its fast, easy, and free.
This increases the idea of decentralization as there is no centralized authority reviewing and saying who can, and who cannot publish applications. This is important to the future of freedom of speech.
When you install a PWA, its like a satellite around the orbit of your web browser. It still relies on your web browser, however it's also its own separate application. Most modern web browsers support PWA's, however some don't and some do only mildly. Namely, Firefox does not support PWA's and Safari has limited support.

For further reading on what PWA's are, we recommend this article on Medium (Link).
Now that your informed, let's talk about how to install.
Because this is a PWA and not a native app, you have to install it a bit different. For now the easiest way to install is to go to, https://next.d.buzz/ on Chrome or the Brave browser, and you should get a pop-up that says "Install".
If you do not get a pop up, then look in the URL bar and you will see a new icon. Here it is on Crome.
Here it is on Brave
And yes, here it is on Brave via a mobile phone.
Whether you install it on your desktop, mobile device or tablet, you'll get a nice icon on your desktop to one click access D.Buzz, along with all the additional features and accessories that go along with it.
