With the recent move to a more remote workforce and a connected device in nearly everyone’s pocket, the internet is more embedded in our lives than ever before. Websites have been around for decades, but how people use them has transformed. Now, there’s a new tool for how internet users access a business and learn about its features or services: Progressive Web Apps (PWAs).
What Are Progressive Web Apps (PWAs)?
Progressive web apps are modern and tech-forward, built to behave like an app but run via a web browser. The major benefits of PWAs are that they are easy to access and have user-friendly capabilities. PWAs also offer an experience similar to a mobile app, even though users access them via a web browser (whether that browser is on a PC or a mobile device).
Progressive web apps have specific characteristics that make them worth the time required to build:
- They are app-like. They behave like an app, so they are intuitive for users.
- They are responsive. They work and look good no matter how a user accesses them.
- They are linkable. Unlike apps that are more complicated to share, progressive web apps can be shared easily by simply sending a link.
- They are discoverable. They can be optimized to show up in search results and other online directories.
Our online learning platform offers classes that will teach you the foundations of building a progressive web app.
