Progressive Web Apps (PWAs)

A PWA is basically a website that has many features that were previously available only in native apps. It can therefore also be described as a symbiosis of a responsive website (website that automatically adapts to screen sizes and devices) and a native app, offering the best of both worlds.

PWAs offer several advantages

Advantages over responsive websites:

  • Faster than websites
  • Functionalities like apps
  • Can be used offline

Advantages over native apps:

  • No installation necessary
  • Neither app nor updates need to be downloaded from an app store
  • High user acceptance even for one-time use
  • High security (encrypted HTTPS protocol)
