What Is a PWA?

A Progressive Web App (PWA) is a responsive website that doubles up as a mobile app. They are fast-loading web apps that work like mobile apps, without the hassle of downloading them from app store. PWAs are experiences that combine the best of the web and the best of apps. They combine the flexibility and reach of the web with the experience of a native mobile app.

PWAs are-

Progressive : Works for every user, regardless of browser choice. As user revisits, the PWA progressively enhances and becomes more and more powerful. It loads quickly, has an app icon on the home screen, and loads in full screen mode.

Responsive : Works on devices of all sizes, be it mobile, desktop, or tablet.

App-like : Feels and works like a native app, with an immersive full screen experience, without the need for downloading it from the app store or play store.

Fast : Works offline or loads instantly even in uncertain network conditions, and responds quickly to user interactions.

Lightweight : As no download is required, it takes up very little space on your devices.

Safe : Served via HTTPS to ensure secure delivery of content.

Linkable and Discoverable : Being website by nature, they have the reach of the web, rank on search engines, can be linked and easily shared without any complex installation.

Up-to-date : You don’t have to worry about updating your app. All the updates will be handled in the background.
