Your Dawn site uses a new technology called Progressive Web Applications (PWA). PWAs provide all the benefits of a native app without the hassle of an app store.

All you have to do is point your browser to the website and save it to your home screen, and you can access your site from an icon on your phone, receive notifications, and store application data just like you would with a native app.
