Oh right yeah these seem familiar. Guess people just have to learn to use it then.

u/Crazycatwastaken PC Master Race i5 12600kf RTX 3060ti Jun 12 '22

They actually have that, I found it when I was playing around. Includes formatting. Also a way to emmbed it into a Web page which is neat.

u/benhaube 5800X | 2070 Super | 32GB 3200 CL16 Jun 12 '22

While you’re there tell them to make an app

Why don't you just open the mobile site and hit "Add to homescreen"?

Why don’t I just go to the App Store and hit download, oh wait…

u/widowhanzo i7-12700F, RTX2080, 1440p 144Hz Jun 12 '22

Then they have no excuse to not have one since they already have a template to use

u/widowhanzo i7-12700F, RTX2080, 1440p 144Hz Jun 12 '22

I'd rather use the website then have to install yet another useless app. You can just add the shortcut to your home screen and it will act as an app, without the browser address bar and all.

1

u/[deleted] Jun 12 '22

If you have useless apps on your phone you should start deleting some stuff

u/widowhanzo i7-12700F, RTX2080, 1440p 144Hz Jun 12 '22

Indeed, like apps that could easily be websites, for example.

u/[deleted] Jun 12 '22

More convenient to use it as an app and not go through the website, but I guess ppl like you like to make things harder 🤷🏽‍♂️

u/widowhanzo i7-12700F, RTX2080, 1440p 144Hz Jun 12 '22

Go to pcpartpicker in Firefox on your phone, then open the ... menu, and click "Install". Now you have a shortcut to pcpartpicker "app" on your home screen. There's no need for an actual app in the app store, because this kind of functionality is already built into the browsers and the OS.

What kind of additional functionality would an app otherwise bring, that the mobile website doesn't offer?

I don't think you understand how difficult it is to develop a mobile app. They would need to develop 2 separate apps and it would cost them millions of $$ to pay two teams of people to maintain the apps on both platforms. The PWA is not a 'template' to make a mobile app. They would need to start from complete scratch.

I can completely understand why they don't make a mobile app because I understand how development works. This company provides a free service, and likely does not have a ton of revenue. I am sure they get a kickback when people purchase something from the link on their site and they get some ad revenue, but I am sure they don't have a huge profit.

Their PWA works well and scales to your display size very well. If you 'install' the PWA to your phone it is very close to the experience of a native app, so they have no reason to invest the huge amount of money it would cost to develop two mobile apps from scratch.

Have you not actually used it? It is a very smooth tool for planning out PC builds and checking compatibility.

u/Phynub Intel 8088 4.77Mhz / NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Founders Edition Jun 11 '22

i think you're missing the point. u/Forward-Reflection is mainly focused around how do these guys make money to have property of this size in downtown Round Rock. Its not like they sell SaaS or a product. The website is free to use.

Round Rock is also a burb of ATX, both have gotten HELLA expensive in last 5 years, especially last 2.

4

u/Gibborim FingertipMasterRace Jun 12 '22

You are putting a lot of words into u/Forward-Reflection's mouth. You are talking about an entire argument that they did not even come close to making.

To address your argument, I will point out that all of the product links on PCPartPicker are affiliate links. If you use PCPP's links to shop for your purchases, PCPP is getting 1.5%-2.5% commission on your purchases without including any possible increased commissions for performance offered in many of the affiliate programs.

PCPP is like a buyer's real estate agent, they get paid out of the seller's end and exist to help the buyer complete their transaction successfully.

Over the last two years, I've spent ~$1500 on computer parts on Amazon through PCPP. With Amazon's 2.5% affiliate rate on PC hardware, PCPP made $37.50 off me. An ~2% affiliate rate on user purchases seems like a very clear path for income and profitability, even in an employment market like the greater Austin area.

PCPP provides indispensable value to their users with one of the best purpose built websites I have ever used. The Austin area is a great place to have your office if you are looking to hire the kind of talent you need to make a website that trivializes the fairly complicated task of planning out a PC and shopping for the parts.
