    Hi! We are deliberating about the state of iOS. We know it needs a lot of TLC :-)

    Thanks Frank. I understand that. I just don’t understand why you can’t update the website to be PWA-compatible now as an interim solution before a longer term solution if found. People have been complaining about iOS support for months, you are likely losing customers as more and more people become mobile-first or mobile-only. PWA would be a low-cost, high benefit change. Any reason not to do it now to stop this bleeding?

    If you do make Workflowy a PWA, please do it cross-platform, not just supporting Apple's non-standard specs. Here are the standard ones I've found:

    Adding the various bits of PWA metadata feels like an easy win. I don't think it would fix the main issue I have though, which is that unless you use actual browser tabs you can't have 2 Workflowy views side-by-side. Tweetdeck is a PWA I use on my iPad, and it still only allows you to have a single instance of the "app" launched at a time.
