PWAs Are Going To Be Trending Than Hybrid and Native Apps

PWA

Businesses mostly use native apps, hybrid apps and PWAs or progressive web applications. It is used depending upon the needs of the business. Even though each of them serves different sets of functions and have their own advantages and disadvantages, PWAs are better than hybrid and native apps. They are written in JavaScript and HTML. They are websites that are specifically developed for mobile users. It is also more cost effective when compared to native and hybrid. Another benefit is that they do not have to be installed in the device so it becomes easier for people with low memory in their phone.

Low Data Usage

Data usage is generally very expensive and even more so in developing countries. When compared to native apps, PWA only uses a small fraction of data. They also do not need storage space in the device.

No Updates Required

The native apps either get updated automatically or have to be updated manually using a wifi connection or data. This increases the cost for the user because updating consumes a lot of data. However, this is not the case for PWA. It performs just like a website. In a website, the update happens while on use in the background and this is exactly how PWA also gets updated. The user will not even know about the update. You will be able to see it even as you load the app. It is also easier and quicker to update, as it does not require a Play Store or App Store approval.

Costs Are Kept Low

Production cost is a big factor when it comes to app development. Production cost is less for PWA compared to a native app or a hybrid app. Even though the functionality is less, the cost will be significantly lower. Even an Android or iOS app will be much expensive. However, a PWA will not even cost half of that much. Thus, an app can be developed even with a small budget. It also entails low-cost maintenance.

PWAs Are Great For SEO

Apart from consuming less data, storage space and reducing cost, they have other great benefits too. One of these is how SEO friendly these apps are. They can make your app more accessible and searchable to the public, which increases your potential traffic. Their loading time is very less. It is less than two seconds. Users prefer apps that load quickly. It makes them want to use it more and increases the ranking. Like the loading, the indexing is also quick which enhances the experience of the user. This is why it is very successful as an SEO friendly app.

Progressive Web Apps Are Really Impressive

Progressive web

Progressive Web Apps are nothing but websites with modern and recent browser capabilities. They also adopt best development practices that make them as good as or even better than native apps. They make full use of features like worker caching, notifications, responsive designs etc. They implement these features and deliver applications while giving importance to user experience. In short, they are much like native apps but much better. Following are the features that make progressive web apps impressive.

  • Offline Mode

When there is no internet connection, most websites have limited functionality. However, mobile apps are not like this. They let the users browse even when there is no connection. There is an offline mode that helps you to automatically save any information that you were browsing when you were last online. With such an offline mode, there is more user engagement and the users will be able to visit your business catalogues even when they do not have an internet connection.

  • Features of Both Website and Mobile Apps

Even though they are designed like a mobile app, they function fully like a website. They have very dynamic data as well as a database. Websites have a greater framework while mobiles provide an enhanced experience to the users when we compare both. Progressive web apps let you have the best of both the worlds. What makes progressive web apps better is that they are ‘indexable’ by search engines. This is also what makes them different from native apps. Businesses in particular benefit from this.

  • Improved Performance

The performance is also much better than other apps. This is because of its underlying framework. Because of this, content, user experience etc. on the website benefits and improves.

  • Installation is Easier

Another impressive feature of progressive web apps is that when users download them, they do not have to wait for a long time like mobile apps. They are also not redirected to the Play Store or the App Store but it is directly downloaded into their device. Thus, it is just like web apps in appearance and performance but without the slow app store submission process.

  • Specific Hardware Features

They have specific hardware features, like for example that of push notification. The developers and those who publish have absolute control over this feature and can be effectively used for advertising purposes. This is very beneficial to e-commerce websites as their push notifications on the phone are much readily read than other emails etc.

  • No Store Submission

PWAs also do not have to be published on the Google Play Store, Windows Store or the iOS App Store. This saves a lot of time. With traditional apps, every time there is an update, it has to go through many approvals. However, PWAs allow regular and easy updates. The updates will also be automatically downloaded.
