Android Instant Apps: 1995 just called and asked for it's idea back

How one of Google's ambitious new projects is 'breaking' app creators' worlds — in a good way
...people can tap on a URL and open an Android app instantly without having to install it...

Wow, what a concept. Click on a link and you can immediately see information. No need to download and install an app to view it. Back in the '90s we called that a web page. Then we called it an "Applet", after that we called it "Flash", more recently we call it "malware". But now, we call it "a new idea from Google".

Great work!

The thing we heard from every developer was, ‘Oh my god, this changes the way we think about things,’

Oh Shobana, now I'm just embarrased!
