Platform Help

The Good Market community platform is a responsive web app that was designed to be used on mobile phones. 

 

The app can be used in any browser across any type of device by going to www.goodmarket.global

 

It can be added to the home screen of a mobile phone or tablet without any downloads. 

Good Market Platform

A web app was chosen for the following reasons:


  • Visible: It can be found in search from any device.
 
  • Easy to Access: Information can be quickly accessed from search or a link without needing to download an app.
 
  • Inclusive: People with limited data plans or connectivity can participate without having to download software or frequent software updates.
 
  • Open Web: Many Good Market community members choose to avoid “walled gardens” owned by profit-maximizing companies.

The Good Market software team is currently working on transitioning from a web app to a progressive web app (PWA). This will make it easier to use the app offline or in low signal areas, add Good Market to a home screen, and handle notifications. See below for more information.

Progressive Web App (PWA)

Native apps are developed for one particular type of mobile device and must be downloaded from an app store and installed directly onto the device. 

 

Responsive web apps are designed to be used on mobile phones. They can be added to the home screen of a mobile phone or tablet without any downloads.

 

Progressive web apps (PWA) make it easier to use apps offline or in low signal areas and combine the best of both native apps and web apps. 

 

The Good Market software team is currently working on transitioning from a web app to a PWA. This will make it easier to use the app offline or in low signal areas, add Good Market to a home screen, and handle notifications.  See below for more information.
