First, let’s look at how PWAs differ from native apps. A progressive web app is basically a website that behaves like a mobile app, whereas a native app is a standalone program that has to be downloaded and installed on a device.
A native app is essentially a piece of software that is stored and run on a user’s device. It has to be installed and updated by the user. A PWA on the other hand is accessed through a web browser, so users do not have to install or update it. And the benefits don’t stop there.
When creating a native app, you have to decide if you are going to develop it for iOS, Android or both. When building a PWA, this is not something you need to consider. Since it is accessed through a web browser, you don’t have to decide which operating system to use. A PWA works on any platform, device, operating system and browser. So users can access your content without any difficulty.
