French-based cloud gaming provider, Blacknut, has announced that they are releasing a Progressive Web App, or PWA, for iOS users.
A Progressive Web App is essentially a way for developers to combine Web and Mobile applications into one. With the PWA, you will now be able to access Blacknut's 500+ game catalog and play on your favorite Apple devices.
According to Blacknut, "The first version of the Blacknut PWA runs exclusively on Safari, the default browser on Apple devices. Players can create a shortcut to easily access the service directly from the home screen of the iPhone or iPad. The PWA can be installed directly from https://app.blacknut.com."
The PWA is Bluetooth-controller ready and also offers 'virtual touch controls.' This feature will overlay your game with a "virtual controller" that will allow you to control your game without the need for an external controller. Perfect for gaming on the go!
“Our team worked tirelessly to bring the full cross-play experience we pride ourselves on to all gamers in this latest PWA update. We are proud to reach this milestone, bringing cloud gaming on iOS to all our subscribers and making cloud gaming even more accessible.” - Pascal Manchon, CTO, Blacknut.
With the release of Blacknut's PWA, this now puts the french cloud gaming service in line with other major cloud gaming providers in terms of compatibility. Blacknut now offers access on PC, Mac, select Smart TV's, Amazon FireTV Stick, Google Chromecast, Android, and now iOS devices.
