It's Time To Make Every Web Application A Progressive Web App

Mobile Apps Will Slip To A Niche Role As PWAs Combine The Discoverability Of The Web With The Experience Of An App

February 12, 2019


Why Read This Report

The technology pendulum has swung from the web being all the rage to the web being a terrible experience. Now, it's swinging back to the web being all the rage again, thanks to progressive web apps (PWAs), which deliver an app-like experience with the discoverability of the web. This report details what application development and delivery (AD&D) pros need to know about PWAs, in what scenarios PWAs are a better option than a native mobile app, and why it's wrong to build any new web application that's not a progressive web app.
