Understanding PROGRESSIVE WEB APPS



We all know how complex the web is, and we certainly know that most of us are very much reliant on the kind of usefulness that web applications give us. We certainly enjoy how these apps give us the ability to do things such as make transactions easily compared to what we used to do a few years back.


But did you know there are various types of apps? When we talk about a web app that uses modern web capabilities to give an app-like experience to users, we’re talking about a Progressive Web App (PWA). The word Progressive itself means it can work for every user, regardless of the kind of browser a user chooses.


When compared to a native app, Progressive Web Apps represent the best of reach as the previous one represents the best of capabilities. Why do we say this? Simply because PWAs can deliver native-like capabilities, reliability, and installability while reaching anyone, anywhere and on any device.


An app can be considered a Progressive Web App if it’s:

  • Responsive

  • App-like

  • Up-to-date

  • Connectivity Independent

  • Safe

  • Discoverable

  • Engageable & Re-engageable

  • Easy to install

  • Linkable


To give you a unique opportunity to deliver a web experience your users will love, Progressive Web App is the name of the game. Further, PWA makes the task of app updates and approval quite simple and less time-consuming. PWA’s are a step forward because you are offering a service that few apps have. It can help grow your business too, bringing more engagement and conversions. But of course, you have to keep in mind that not all users are into PWAs and you would need to analyze if your users would prefer using a progressive website than a native app.
