  • What's the latest way of submitting pwas to the app stores?
    Disclosure: I run https://webtoapp.design where I convert websites into mobile apps (and help publish them). Basically, yes, wrap it in a WebView. I'd need to see your mobile website to judge it better, but if it looks like a website, Apple might reject it. Your website really needs to look like an app to have some certainty of getting it through if your website only consists of a WebView. At webtoapp.design we... - Source: Hacker News / 5 months ago
  • Ask HN: Those making $500/month on side projects in 2023 – Show and tell
    I've been working on https://webtoapp.design for for 4 years now (in 10 days). It's my first business, so I've made plenty of mistakes. By now I have someone that handles the easier customer support inquiries and after all the other costs I can live off of it (not an appropriate software engineer salary for Europe, but it's enough). It can be very frustrating, since I help my customers through the entire app... - Source: Hacker News / 8 months ago
  • Ask HN: Most interesting tech you built for just yourself?
    To be fair, I'm trying to turn it into a public product since I think the use-case isn't very niche. I've recently started building https://responsebrain.com where I can add all my blog articles and automatically let ChatGPT generate responses to questions about my other product https://webtoapp.design It's a pretty basic setup with a knowledge base you can feed anything you want (your blog articles, help center... - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • Ask HN: Side project of more that $2k monthly revenue what's your project?
    I've been working on https://webtoapp.design since December 2019. I cracked $2k/month after around 2 years. Could've probably done it quicker if I did more things that don't scale (as people often say). Should've focused less on SEO and more on outreach or other growth channels. I've since got my CS degree and I'm working on it full time now :). - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Ask HN: Successful one-person online businesses?
    I develop https://webtoapp.design on my own and have a handful of freelancers for translation & some repetitive tasks. Basically I turn websites into hybrid apps (some native components + WebView). I started in December 2019 and I'm now closing in on making a regular european junior developer salary (3.5k/month). I'm experiencing good growth currently, so I can't say recent trends have negatively affected me. I... - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Learn PWA
    You're correct, the end users are the ones who want a "real app". One of the most successful websites that I turned into an app [0] had users constantly asking the owner for an app. There was already a PWA and guide on how to add it to your homescreen available. But now that I created an app that displays the website for the client, the end users are overjoyed and love it. To be fair, I add a couple native... - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • Learn PWA
    I agree with you, however keep in mind that the app stores have rules against just shipping a webview. Disclosure: I founded https://webtoapp.design where I create apps based on websites, which is how I know the following. If you have a well performing website that feels like an app (e.g. By being a SPA), you can get accepted with an app consisting of just a webview. If you have a regular website on the other... - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • Tips for Developers Who Want to Build a SaaS Startup
    I use Paddle on https://webtoapp.design and went through their and my TOS with a german lawyer. Basically they're only responsible for payments & customer support (however most customers come to me directly or get directed to me, as Paddle can only really resolve billing issues). Paddle checked my site & product 3 times to make sure it complies with their requirements (an important aspect in my case was that my... - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • Tips for Developers Who Want to Build a SaaS Startup
    It took me around 1.5 years (at first part-time and then full-time) to get to 1.5k-2k€/month with https://webtoapp.design Probably quite long but I had a lot of stuff to set up to get the product automated (and I did barely any marketing, basically just wrote a couple random blog posts for SEO). - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • Ask HN: What does your Mom tell people about your work or employment?
    My grandparents think I don't work at all - because I have no employer (self-employed) and work from home. My parents understand pretty well that I turn websites into apps [0]. Revently someone described it as "Oh you make the big thing (websites on computers) go into the small thing (app on smartphone)". I found that wholesomely funny.

  • Why to Start a Startup in a Bad Economy
    I needed to hear this. I wouldn't say we're in a bad economy yet, but I was worrying about the future a bit. I like the advantages pg mentions (like less competition), which are a great way to look at potential problems. There's always 2 sides. Since I run my business (https://webtoapp.design) with relatively low monthly fixed costs (around 200€) I think I should be fine. I don't think I'll run out of money under... - Source: Hacker News / about 2 years ago
  • Things I don’t want to do to grow my side project
    Yea, I can relate to this article a lot. I'm hiring people for everything that I dislike doing at https://webtoapp.design. - Source: Hacker News / about 2 years ago
  • Ask HN: Have you used SQLite as a primary database?
    Yes! I use it for https://webtoapp.design. - Source: Hacker News / about 2 years ago
  • Ask HN: Those making $500/month on side projects in 2021 – Show and tell
    I run https://webtoapp.design where I convert websites to apps. Been working on it for 2 years now. I started it while attending university as a side-project, but now my studies have definitely taken a step back. That has allowed me to get the business to around $1500/month (bad months are $500, best month was $4000). That's been possible due to free education in Germany and me being able to move back in with my... - Source: Hacker News / over 2 years ago
  • Publish Your PWAs to the iOS App Store
    Disclosure: I operate a similar but commercial service at https://webtoapp.design Whether your webview app will get published in the app store depends on how "app-like" your PWA looks and if you get a strict app reviewer. I instead add native components to the apps I create to make sure they look more like an app, which works well to get the app approved by Apple. From my experience, push notifications are a very... - Source: Hacker News / over 2 years ago
  • Ask HN: Companies of one, what is your tech stack (2021)?
    I turn existing websites into apps at https://webtoapp.design I went with Flask (python) + Bootstrap for my website. The apps are created in Flutter, which was a great choice looking back on it. This allows me to have 1 codebase for both Android & iOS apps (most customers want both). - Source: Hacker News / almost 3 years ago
