Progressive Web Apps are significantly faster than the mobile apps. The navigation of PWA is seamless, and its smooth animations make the use of the app livelier. One of the main reasons why users bounce from the website is because of its load time. Recently, Forbes adopted the PWA and experienced that PWA loads in 2.5 seconds compared to the previous 6.5 seconds of mobile site load time. Impression also increased by 10% per session .
2) Offline Mode
In this world of internet, things stop working without the internet connection. With PWA’s offline mode, the changes you make get saved automatically. For an offline page, all you need is a brand logo, product information and features you wish to highlight. The offline mode allows your customers to see the product catalog as well without any internet connectivity. It helps not only to keep the customer engaged but also in retaining them.
3) App-Like Feeling
Another highlight feature of the Progressive Web apps is they offer an app-like feeling, yet having all the features a website has along with dynamic data & access to the database. With a similar setting to the site, it makes it easier for customers to access other things they want to look.
4) No Download & Install Hassles
Unlike mobile apps, PWA does not have the hassles of download or install. Also, you need not go to the Google Play or App store as you can download the PWA through links on your device. You can also share the link with your friends through various social media platforms.
5) Better Customer Experience
The customers access the same version of your apps until they allow the auto update or install the latest version of the app from the app store. However, PWAs have uniformity across all the platforms and help you to deliver consistently dominant and enhanced experience to the users.
