In August, the Lottery Post mobile website officially became a PWA app, allowing iPhone and Android phone users to install Lottery Post right alongside their other apps on their phone's home screen.  The mobile PWA app provides phone users faster access and viewable content even when the phone loses network access.

Now those same benefits are available to anyone using the Lottery Post desktop website on a computer, tablet, etc.

This evening the latest updates to Lottery Post went online, which include the same PWA technologies used by the mobile website.  So now desktop (computer and tablet) users can access Lottery Post content even when the network goes out, pages generally load faster, and Lottery Post is installable as an "app" on your computer.

If you don't care about "installing apps" on your computer, don't worry — you are receiving the benefits of the PWA technology without doing a thing.  Pages load faster and you'll be able to view Lottery Post content even if your network is out.

That part about seeing Lottery Post content when your network is out means that anything you have previously viewed on Lottery Post is available for you to view anytime — even if your network goes out.  Naturally, you do need an active network connection in order to interact with the website (like posting on the forums) or viewing content that you've never seen before.  But it can be a big help to have access to everything you've seen before when your internet connection goes offline.

One thing to keep in mind about that feature is regarding logging on and off your Lottery Post account.  For security reasons, every time you log on or log off, the system deletes the pages you visited at Lottery Post from the app's internal storage.  So if you would like to keep a deep history of your visited pages on your computer, I'd recommend that you remain logged in all the time.  If you share a computer with others, it might not be possible for you to stay logged in, but at least you won't be expecting to be able to see a lot of content if your network goes out.

As with all new technologies, there might be a hiccup or two, but I'll be fixing anything that breaks ASAP.  You can use the Report a Problem form to report any kind of problem you're having.  Or, if all else fails you can write to .

If you have any questions or feedback, here's the place!

                Thanks for posting the info Raven.  You can also install the PWA app in Chrome by clicking the "plus sign" icon in the Address bar:

                (Chrome itself decides when to show that button, so although it should appear there for everyone, sometimes the browser doesn't want to show it for some reason.)

                 

                Check the State Lottery Report Card
                What grade did your lottery earn?
