A possible downside of an AppImage is that the software is not

the AppImage documentation website work well.
In that case, its advantage over the static binary packages is only very minor.
Just the launch process might be a bit simpler for certain users.

It is a bit better than that. First, you can in general start an AppImage from your file manager without having to set up any path. Second, there is AppImageLauncher [1] which is  takes care of adding AppImages to the launcher and "storing" them in ~/applications instead of the download folder. Last, there is App Outlet [2] which offer an app store like experience for snap, flatpak and AppImage files. Click, install and run. It is very nice and simple.
