During the last two years, web developers have started talking about PWAs (Progressive Web Apps).
Web Developers also want to use the technology that is mobile-friendly and can solve everyday needs.
PWA is the tool that can easily turn your boring and older website into a modern and mobile-optimized version.
We at WPLMS have also upgraded to PWAs and you will not believe how awesome it is.
In this article, we will discuss why we need progressive web apps and later we will see the features that make PWAs best for your website.
Why We Need Progressive Web Apps
Supported by Google, PWAs aims at delivering a high level of performance on any device regardless of any network condition. Having a PWA enabled website helps you in achieving native-app like qualities that make your website fast, reliable, and engaging.
To understand why we need PWAs, let’s consider the following scenario. Suppose you are traveling and using a cool web app for reading a book, meanwhile, you lose your connection or about to be in the area with little or no network connection and you lose your experience of reading books.
This happens because traditional web applications work only when you have a network connection. Whenever you will lose the network, the web application will stop and will load all the content from the start.
This is where PWAs (progressive web applications) came into play to provide a smooth user experience even in the little or no network connection. It uses “service workers” to intercept network requests and cache the responses from the device. A user can easily add a PWA application to their home screen so that they can easily access the site content even if they are offline.
