Google recently added support for Trusted Web Activity (TWA) to Chrome for its Android browser, essentially streamlining the process for people making progressive web apps (PWA) for in the Play Store. Now, a new service appears to take advantage of this development, allowing people to quickly turn their progressive web apps into APK.
PWA2APK, seen by XDA-Developers is a web-based service that is some of the tasks of doing all the important APK files. At present, developers need to manually create an APK from their progressive web app if they want to publish it on the Play Store. But this service quickly enters a signed APK enabled TWA, as you copy / paste the URL of your progressive web app and verify the ownership of that website.
The service is free to use, and it also adds the ability for developers to view an APK source code. So if you have any hesitation about using PWA2APK due to security concerns, additional additions may go some way to allaying your fears.
PWA2APK news is then after the addition of TWA support to Chrome for Android earlier this year. The functionality replaces the WebView standard used by previous web apps, which really hide the Chrome UI (eg Address bar and other elements) to have a better look.
TWA also provides web apps for the Play Store by providing native support for notifications, background sync, Chrome autofill, and API Sharing.
