MobileViews Podcast 393: iPhone batteries vs. cases? Google Flutter adds Windows support; Office PWA for Chromebooks; Digital connections with your SO

In this pre-Super Bowl/pre-Valentine podcast, Jon Westfall and I discuss:

  1. Is your iPhone case damaging the battery?
  2. Google Flutter adds support to build Windows apps
  3. CNet: How to use Microsoft Office on a Chromebook
    Since the PWA behaves like installed software, you can do things like pin it to the taskbar, get notifications, work offline and easily resize it. The rest of the experience is the same as using the web versions.
  4. Google: Use Progressive Web Apps
  5. Discussion Topic: Connecting with your spouse / significant other using Technology

Post-podcast note: I went through the process of installing a PWA on my Chromebook after the podcast. You can see two screenshots here showing the installation icon in the browser and the chrome-less PWA running after the installation.

Available via Google Music Podcasts and Apple iTunes.
