Progressive Web Apps (PWA’s) Are Here and They’re Changing Everything
So what exactly are PWA’s?
A PWA is a combination of mobile-friendly website and a mobile app. A PWA is responsive to almost all devices and it feels and functions like an app you’d get from the Google Play Store or the Apple. The key feature to a PWA is that despite it feeling exactly like an app, users do not have to spend time trying to find it, they do not have to download it and it doesn’t take precisious storage space. It makes use of modern browser features and allows users to upgrade easily.
Ok, so who is currently using PWA’s?
Twitter Lite, Google Maps, Tinder, Instagram, Uber, Trivago Hotel Booking, Starbucks Coffee, Forbes News, Washington Post News, Pinterest Social… just to mention a few.
In a lot of cases, progressive web apps aren’t “just as good” as traditional native apps; they’re better.
