Progressive Web App – a revolution in mobile websites

In a nutshell, a Progressive Web App is a web app with traditional mobile app characteristics, installed with a single tap whilst browsing.  

PWA is based on Chrome, Firefox and Opera search engines. A website automatically builds a partial or a complete copy in a phone’s storage, significantly accelerating the website loading time and making it possible to browse offline. The solution solves all the problems regarding a smartphone net connection, e.g. on a train or underground trip. 

 

The benefits of PWA-standard websites:

  • Responsive – the websites get automatically adjusted to the device’s resolution – whether it’s a desktop computer, tablet or smartphone
  • Independent of an internet connection – the websites work also in low-speed network connection areas and even completely offline
  • “Mobile app UX” – browsing resembles that of a standard mobile app
  • Ongoing updates – thanks to implementing Service Workers processes
  • Secure – the application of HTTPS protocol prevents information interception
  • Highly engaging – functionalities such as push notifications raise user engagement, which results in the increase of their interactions with a website.
  • Easily installed – a user is able to keep their favourite websites’ shortcuts on the mobile screen with no need to visit a mobile apps store.

Additionally, if a website is in the Progressive Web App standard, a user is able to create its shortcut icon on their smartphone screen. When tapped it will work as a full-screen version with no URL bar.
