    Hosted web apps


    Hosted Web Apps is an opportunity to turn a regular website into a full-fledged program using the Windows system API. You will need to write such sites ... in JavaScript.

    Some developers for iOS or web developers have probably created sites that support the Add to Homescreen button functions on iOS mobile devices: we can fix the website and it will behave as a full-fledged application. You can use some system APIs, cache files and gain access to the device’s WebSQL / IndexedDB databases. It should be said that IndexedDB in iOS 8 does not fully work now .



    Returning to Windows 10, there you can add such sites to the store. Sites will be able to access contacts, calendar, notifications, and more. You do not need to write a C / C # application, just add the necessary functionality and turn your website into an application.

    Spartan on the doorstep.
