What is a PWA?

PWA is a type of web applications based on a stack of web and mobile innovations (JavaScript, CSS, HTML, and Service Worker). PWAs look and interact with the client as native applications. Advances in the improvement of browsers, cache, and push-interfaces allowed to get such applications installed on the home screen right from the browser, get pop-up notifications, and even use them offline. This is an absolute necessity for organizations working in the eCommerce, Shopify segment, where keeping up consistent communication with the client winds up one of the keys to be the best.

Why Build a Progressive Web App?

Progressive mobile applications are a product of the joint evolution of the mobile site and the native application. Simply put, a hybrid that incorporates the very best of its predecessors. Now, the ease of installation and opening of the mobile site and the functionality of the native application (push notifications, GPS-navigation, and other native functions) became united.

The technology benefits both customers and users.

  • Progressive web application development comes out several times cheaper and faster than native engineering, which opens up many new opportunities for small companies.
  • For users, the benefits are no less significant: a PWA doesn’t take up space in the phone’s memory, there is no need to download the application from app stores.

One of the top advantages of PWA over native apps is that there’s no necessity to upload software to App Store and Google Play stores. Progressive web technology applications are completely standalone. Developers no longer need to stick to the established rules and policies of Apple and Google while users get simplified installation procedures. In order to open PWA, it is enough to go to the company’s website from a mobile device, and the linked web application will open automatically.

At the same time, you can add the PWA icon to the phone desktop. As opposed to the full-on installation of native apps, here, all a user has to do is agree to “install” an icon. The PWA icon is a picture with a link to a web application that opens through a browser, with which the user can launch the application he likes at any time. Another important difference between the PWA and the ‘heavy native’ is that PWA occupies almost no space in the user’s phone memory.
