PWA and Native Apps

WHAT IS A PWA? 

A progressive web app is a hybrid between a responsive website and a mobile app. PWAs are designed and developed as a website but offer an app-like experience when visited via mobile. They can also be placed as an app on the home screen by the users without needing to install the app. PWAs are developed using modern JavaScript frameworks – designed to give a near-native experience and can be installed on a mobile device instantly.

What is a Native App?

Native apps are developed for a specific OS, they promise faster performance and can use the hardware’s capabilities more effectively. Native apps for iOS and Android platforms are developed separately, which means more investment in terms of money, time and effort.
