Application "PWA" automatically generates a mobile and desktop application based on your site using progressive web app (PWA) technology.

The applications created using this technology are installed on users' devices and work on them, downloaded directly from the browser or from application stores such as Google Play and the App Store.

PWA applications can be either complementary to native applications (APKs) or full-fledged alternatives. It all depends on your goals and business objectives.

PWAs are very similar to native applications (APKs), but they have both advantages and disadvantages over them.

3 Appendix "How to use:

"
  1. Official application generator for your website.
  2. Sending push notifications. Using the application, you can send push notifications not only to mobile applications, but also to the user’s browser.
  3. Acceleration site. The application uses a Service Worker request that allows you to cache: pages, images, videos, audio, fonts, js, css. Create a static-dynamic site architecture (part of the site loads instantly, the other part is loaded from the server).

All methods can be used, both together with others and separately.

PWA advantages over native application (APK):

  1. Price. APK development costs significantly more than PWA.
  2. Support. PWA works on all platforms and is built on top of an existing site, meaning you only need to maintain your site. APKs are created separately for each platform (Android, iOS, Windows) and also require separate support.
  3. Control. PWA does not require a separate control panel. The application is updated automatically..
  4. Installation variability. In addition to downloading from app stores. PWA can be installed in one click directly from the browser. This avoids app store restrictions and commissions.
  5. Promotion. PWA does not require additional promotion, they are indexed in the same way as regular sites.
  6. Used space on the device. PWA takes on average about 1mb, APK 300mb.

PWA disadvantages over APK:

  1. Restricted access to the user's device. PWA does not have access to Contacts, Calendar, Bluetooth, NFC, Siri, Face, and Touch ID.
  2. Performance. Native app performance is better than PWA.

PWA features and benefits:

  • Installing an icon on the user's device. This is an additional advertisement for your business, increasing brand awareness and image.
  • Communication with the audience. Using web push notifications, you can communicate with your customers, notify about order status, news, promotions, etc.
  • Improve loading speed. PWA caches html, CSS styles, JS files, images, fonts, video, audio. This improves page loading to around 1 second.
  • Work offline. PWA can work offline. You can also set up a fallback response page where you can tell the user how to contact you when the site is down.
  • UI\UX. In PWA, you can implement UI elements just like you would in a native app. This will improve usability compared to the mobile version of the site.

All of the above will have a positive impact on site conversion, usability, customer acquisition cost, customer returns, number of orders, engagement.

  • 5 caching strategies that can be configured separately for each caching object.
  • The presence of pre-caching, with which you can create a full-fledged offline application and create a static-dynamic (island architecture) site architecture, this can significantly speed up the site and application, including PageSpeed ​​Insights indicators. In this example you can see that the left side of the "Sidebar" site loads instantly using pre-caching, while the main content a little later.
