What are Progressive Web Apps?

PWA’s are the latest game changers in the app world. They create fast, robust applications that benefit the users, irrespective of their connection speed or device constraints. PWA’s are built with a collection of design concepts, technologies and Web API’s that work synchronously to provide an app-like experience on mobile.

Features of the Progressive Web App Concept

Besides offering engaging, and faster solutions, the concept of PWA’s also bring along some great benefits and features:

2. Responsiveness

The user-interface of a PWA should fit all screens or devices. All you need to worry about is improving the performance of the application with high quality code.

3. Link-ability

Similar to websites, one can easily share a PWA with just a URL. Websites can easily direct users to the app and users can easily bookmark and share with others.
