In the last year, Progressive Web Apps have become an incredibly popular way to build next generation apps. PWAs bring many advantages to the table, and in today’s post I’d like to share why we think you should care.
Why should I care about PWAs?
PWAs bring unique advantages to the table for developers building consumer facing apps. They allow developers to completely skip the app stores and instead simply deploy to a web server. This allows you to get your app out faster and to more people than you would be able to with deploying to the App Store and Google Play. Also, because you are not tied to the app store, this means that updates can be immediately available to everyone using your app, by simply pushing your new code to your web server. And because PWAs run in the browser, your single PWA can then be reached from just a click on a URL, greatly reducing the barrier to entry to your app!
