Progressive Web Apps (PWA) are a relatively new concept but fast gaining popularity among Indian app developers. PWAs provide an app-like experience but are built on web services using JS, React Polymer, or other such frameworks. They cannot compete with native app development but still present some very attractive features.

While native apps have to be developed individually for each OS, Android, or iOS, which makes them very costly and time-consuming, PWAs are a once-built-use-anywhere sort of deal. They work equally well on tablets, desktops, tablets, mobiles, and even on some wearables as they maintain the web’s low friction.

Speed of deployment
A PWA does not need to be downloaded and installed. Instead, it just loads through the browser, making the process quite simple. However, since they are not present on the system, they have limited access to system hardware like Bluetooth, camera, or volume controls. App developers can code in special system access requests to do away with this glitch.

Choosing to go mobile
PWAs are a bridge between websites and mobile apps. Even this transition is made seamless by the app developers. PWAs are evolving in leaps and bounds and can present an immersive, top-level native app-like experience.

As PWAs require only one-time development as compared to native apps, where you need to develop different versions for different platforms using a whole new set of app developers for each language, they offer a cheaper solution.

PWAs are an excellent solution for mobile-device-driven e-Commerce operations and sites because of the relative ease of access they provide. App developers recommend them as they can be used conveniently even with slow, limited, or unreliable net connectivity. But when it comes to security concerns, branding, and user engagement with ease of navigation, native apps are a way to go.
