What is a PWA?

A Progressive Web App (PWA) is basically just a website with some added features, which enable it to provide an app-like user-experience.

This means it can work practically just like a native iOS or Android app. It can be installed to the home screen of your mobile device, work offline and receive push notifications, among other things.

A well-designed PWA is indistinguishable from a native app, but it also offers some strong added benefits:

  • It's just a website! You don't need to build separate apps anymore. If you have a website, you can easily turn it into and iOS and Android app as well!
  • A PWA is much smaller than a native app. Your users no longer need to install tens of megabytes of code
  • No need to get your app into the App Store or Play Store. Just share the link to your website and users can install it as an app
  • There's no need to get users to install updates anymore. When you release a new version of your app, all your users automatically get the new version
  • By default, PWAs are served over HTTPS and are therefore safe and secure
  • PWAs are lightweight and offer high performance
  • Especially on Android, a PWA can almost do anything a native app can
