What the digital world has been predicting since long, ‘rather than downloading the app and installing it, we would be able to just access the app through the web browser’, is now a reality. Progressive Web Apps are the future of the mobile applications. Progressive Web Apps are created using the latest web technology and they give the user a native app like performance.
The web apps couldn’t give a seamless user experience earlier because of the limitations of web standards-based technologies for development. And the native apps turned out to be too complex to develop, maintain and update as people used different mobile devices and different versions of the app.
But the scenario is now set to change with the advancement in the new web technology, new Web APIs, new design concepts, and new UI trends; the era of progressive web apps is here!
Progressive Web Apps are revolutionary but they still lack certain features. Those might find a solution in future as the web technology progresses further. Here are the few Progressive web apps features which are not currently supported by the PWA.
Progressive web app eliminates the need for developing three separate apps for desktop/ mobile web access, Android access, and iOS access; thus reducing the cost of designing and development and maintenance. Especially if your potential user base prefers laptop/ desktop, PWA is the best solution. Big players like Alibaba, Flipkart and even Twitter have adopted them; even Ola has launched PWA recently, which is the proof of its growing popularity.
As loading time of the PWA is quick, the instances of users getting away distracted are less likely to happen. The result is improved conversion rate. And it also reduces the quantum of data used for the app to a considerable extent; the users of your app would have one more reason to be happy.
