Jen talked about Eddystone beacons and how they remove the need for a dedicated app to pick them up (Eddystone beacons can transmit URLs which can be automatically detected by the phone and have a web site / web app launched).
I couldn’t help thinking as I listened how this could work well with the Progressive Web App concept. And then today Jen tweeted a link to this article which did link the two ideas together. Getting all this right (the use of beacon technology) is a real challenge still for developers but I think the idea of Progressive Web Apps in combination with Eddystone technology is really exciting.
