Building a web app? Have users download directly to their desktop!

Whilst scrolling the forum the other day I stumbled upon a thread that caught my eye, so naturally I go read it! Id love to share what I found and turn it into a topic so more people can check this out!

@dilon_perera was trying to help another user and posted a link to, app.todesktop.com, Essentially this will take your web app and have become downloadable on your users desktop. I tried this out with my current web app (a Studio management software) and it was painless. I was able to get a download link that downloaded my app to my computer (Mac) as well as a windows computer. you are even able to deep link within the app, send native desktop notifications, and so much more. Thanks @dilon_perera for this great find!
