......@@ -139,19 +139,19 @@ This is a huge deal for several reasons:
- A friend sends me a link in a chat, I jump right into the game.
- I'm waiting in line for an amusement park ride, I see the QR code, play the game, win, jump to the head of the queue.
- A reality TV show displays a QR code for the game contestants are playing, I join *that* game and play with them.

2. Since Quick Apps use smaller file sizes than native apps, their resource impacts on phones and network is reduced.
- Less device storage impacts broadens the addressable market size.
- Less network impact reduces pressure on capped data rate plans.
- And as "aside", did you realize that 40% of a mobile phone's carbon footprint is due to usage, and that 28% of green house gas emissions from digital technologies are due to network infrastructure! [04] I'm sure that we would all like to be greener, and every little helps.

3. And if Quick Apps can be used without installation, then home-screens don't clutter so quickly.
- I see a QR code, or receive a download link from a trusted source, a acquire the app seemlessly, I use it, it decaches from my device after a certain period of time (unless I explicitly add it to my home-screen). *Ad hoc* app use becomes a painless non-event. And that is how it should be!

And what we don't want more than anything else in the world (excluding pineapple on pizza), is to stop, search in an app store, wait for download, realise we have the wrong app, "rinse and repeat", before actually doing what we wanted to do. "Time is money", mobile internet connections can drop out. The window of opportunity can be surprisingly small.
Beyond this slightly light-hearted regard is a serious issue. It's tiring, time consuming and quite frankly a pain in the butt for users. And from a publisher's perspective, it risks losing the audience at the very moment they have the time or desire to play your game.

If it's not now, it's never.

This doesn't just impact "first contact", but also re-use. Least we forget, most apps make their money from iAPs and ads, so getting people to re-use an app is kinda important.
