You may not have heard about them yet, but Progressive Web Apps are about to change the app development landscape. Though announced in 2015, they have really gained popularity this year. Before it becomes the ‘in’ thing, let’s learn what the buzz is all about.
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.
