PWAs do not rely on a lot of underlying code and this makes them much smaller that the native apps, making downloads very fast and also unlike the native apps, they will load and work regardless of your internet connection - slow or non existent, the PWA will still work.
They also share only one code base thus eliminating the need to maintain and keep track of multiple code bases.
Also when deploying a PWA, is pretty much like deploying a website, you dont need a Google Play store account or an App Store account - you just upload the code to the server.
PWA web pages can be accessed via a browser or can be translated to the homepage of any smartphone and accessed from there.
PWAs also share a lot of the functionalities of native apps and will provide a nearly identical user experience.
Updating PWA’s is also easy, just like a webpage, a PWA will automatically update when the website is updated, eliminating the need to manually update the individual PWAs.By behaving like this, they ensure all users they have the latest version of the PWA.
In terms of being cost-efficient, the same PWA can be used on any operating system, making the development and testing phases much easier and efficient.Looking for more PWA benefits?
It is estimated, by Gartner Research, that by the end of 2020, the Progressive Web Apps, will replace 50% of all consumer-facing apps.
