We (Tasit Labs) would like to build a proof-of-concept native mobile app for simple ENS registrations. Thoughts?
The primary motivation is to make it as easy as possible to register ENS names of 7+ character length (and shorter ones when the auction is done).
Having a mobile app fits well with the new push for wider adoption of ENS.
- We’re thinking that this would be a stand-alone native mobile app in React Native, not a PWA (progressive web app) within a dapp browser app.
- Using React Native does leave the option open of using the same codebase to build for a mobile PWA deployment target in the future using react-native-web, which is nice.
- React Native also means that it would work on both iOS and Android.
- Finally, the fact that the manager app on the web is built with React means it will be easier for the same engineers to contribute to multiple front-end apps.
Open to suggestions, but push notifications on mobile would be nice for renewal notices.
Here’s an example of a 3rd-party native mobile app we recently built that lets you buy Decentraland land and estates:
We’re also interested in building a mobile app for the short name auction. A separate post for that will go in the Short Name Reservation WG category on this forum. We’re open to doing either or both.
I could go into a lot more detail here, but I’d like to keep this forum post short to get people’s initial reactions to the idea itself.
