Web distribution offers a convenient way to deliver your apps to your audience as Progressive Web Apps (PWAs). This enables users to add the app to their home screen, providing an experience similar to native apps from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
- Branding: With web distribution, you can use a custom domain and remove Starion branding, ensuring your app maintains your brand identity.
- Limited native features: Web distribution doesn't support all native features found in native apps.
- Push notifications: Available only on supported browsers (e.g., Chrome).
- No offline functionality: Web distribution does not support offline features, meaning the app won't work without an internet connection.
You can personalize your app by adding a custom domain, with a limit of one domain per app. For instructions on setting up a custom domain, please visit our Custom Domain page.
Web distribution does not support push notifications on all browsers. Certain browsers, like Chrome, allow for push notifications, but it may not be a consistent experience across all platforms.
- All Chromium-based browsers (both mobile and desktop), which means Android devices are supported.
- Safari (iOS 16.4 or later). Please note that push notifications can only be sent to users who have added your app to their home screen.
Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) may have limited offline capabilities compared to native apps. If offline functionality is critical for your app, you might need to explore alternative distribution methods.
Due to limited access to native device features, location-based services such as geo-fencing might not work as effectively in a web distribution. To leverage accurate geo-fencing features, consider using the Starion Go app or a native app distribution.
