Some people wonder why Apple/Safari/WebKit folks often refer to “Web Apps”, “Home Screen Web Apps”, “Installed Web Apps” or similar terms, instead of “Progressive Web Apps” or PWAs. There’s a couple of reasons:

1. We like to reflect language that appears in the UI when possible.


@jayphen Seems like a bug to me! We support a related concept of how screen bookmarks (for sites that don’t support running as a standalone web app) but Twitter installs as a real web app.

@othermaciej Maybe! I am using the latest beta. I will try to figure out how to report this.
