Progressive Web Apps or what we generally call PWAs have taken the world by storm. And why not so when they had not only beaten mobile websites but native apps too? If we take the case of mobile websites, they are fast and intuitive but when it comes to delivering a seamless user experience they often fail to do so. On the other hand, if we consider native apps, these are known for delivering a dynamic user experience but when it comes to compatibility with multiple devices these apps easily lose ground.
This is where PWAs come in. PWAs are a blend of both mobile websites & native apps and are known for delivering extremely fast, reliable, and engaging user experience. These are in essence web apps built using cutting-edge technologies that act and feel like mobile apps. Users can access these apps without downloading them to get a full-scale and immersive experience right in the web browser itself.
So if you are planning to develop a Progressive Web Application for your business, you are on the right track. But when it comes to PWA development there are a lot of factors you need to focus on. This blog will take you on a journey where you will get to know each and everything you must know about PWA development.
So let’s begin the journey without any delay.
Well, when it comes to the advantages of going with PWAs, they are numerous. We will go through some of the top benefits that can help you upscale your online business without investing a heavy amount of money.
1.Mobile App Features Without Any Installation
The good thing about PWAs is, they offer features and functionalities that any typical mobile app can offer but without any installation, as these apps work like a web page.
2.More User Engagement
PWAs offer high user engagement as compared to mobile apps due to their rich user experience. PWAs come with an interactive user interface and a native app-like experience that helps to retain users for a longer time
The good thing about progressive web applications is, they offer an immersive experience regardless of device and browser. Their faster loading and highly responsive nature are something that attracts tech-savvy customers.
Poor internet is something that has kept many potential customers away from enjoying a seamless app experience. But with PWAs things are different. PWAs allow users to access features and explore content even when they have no internet at all.
5.High Conversion Rate
A smooth app experience helps to attract and retain customers. This is something PWAs are good at. PWAs are capable enough to convince users when it comes to conversions.
You might be wondering how it’s possible. How can PWAs attain this all when both mobile websites and apps alone fail to do so? Well, here are some stats to verify claims.
