Discussion on: Please don't make a mobile app (unless if you have to)

As a matter of fact, Whatsapp wouldn't be the hardest app to replicate if supporting low-level (and iPhones hihi) phones wasn't a goal.

I think the most advanced use cases for Whatsapp are notifications and registering itself as a share app, both supported by PWA tecnologies.

I get your point, but my title and the comment disclaimer both make it clear that web apps aren't a silver bullet now. I hope it becomes one someday, but it might not, and there's no problem with that.
