Web Development Trends to Check out in 2022- Progressive Web Apps

What are Progressive Web Apps?

Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) are a new type of web application that offer a native app experience to users. PWAs combine the best of both worlds – they are web-based, so they can be accessed from any device with an internet connection, but they also offer a full-native mobile app experience, complete with push notifications, offline functionality, and access to device hardware.

Benefits of Progressive Web Apps

There are many benefits of Progressive Web Apps for businesses and developers alike. For businesses, PWAs offer the ability to reach more users with a single investment – there is no need to develop separate apps for iOS and Android devices. For developers, PWAs offer a more efficient way to develop mobile apps, as well as the opportunity to create cross-platform applications.

How do Progressive Web Apps work?

Progressive Web Apps are built using web technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. These apps are then “wrapped” using a tool like Cordova or Ionic in order to be distributed through app stores. Once installed on a user’s device, the app operates like any other native app – it can be launched from the home screen, run in the background, and receive push notifications. However, unlike native apps, PWAs are not platform-specific and can be used on any device that supports the required web technologies.
