Web App Insights
Progressive Web Applications (PWAs) are the future.
Progressive web applications (PWAs) or Serverless apps have made the Desktop Application to Web Application transition seamless. Not just seamless but preferable.
PWAs are solutions built on new technology stacks like React that allow the enterprise to break the dependency between the presentation layer and the server layer. This separation gives an experienced development team the tools needed to create a friction-less web experience.
Mobile apps vs Mobile Web apps.
For the past decade, the debate has raged on as to whether the mobile web will dominate or whether mobile apps will prevail. The answer is that they are not mutually exclusive and most organizations need both. The case should be made around the business needs and audience. Going through a proper understanding phase can determine the best direction for the presentation layer.
There’s a lot of possibilities with Web Apps these days.
With that approach solidifying, PWAs are emerging, which blur the lines between Web and Apps. PWAs use the latest browser technologies to meld the accessibility of the web with the presence of the mobile app. Most of the leading desktop and mobile browsers (except for Safari and browsers on iOS at the time of writing) have embraced the browser advancements brought forth by Mozilla, Google, Facebook and others to implement embedded features that enable the PSAs to feel like an app.
The embedded features take advantage of modern browser functionality. New browser functionality gives your audience the ability to install the PWA as an app icon on their home screen, utilize app features such as push notifications and the ability to work from offline storage.
Web App Recommendations
Who doesn’t want to save money?
Re-evaluate existing apps’ ROI and compare app maintenance costs to incremental PWA costs, but do not halt your mobile app initiatives, especially if iOS is important.
A solid support group.
Start adding support for Web Applications, especially if the Android operating system (OS) is a significant part of your mobile user base, based on improvements in mobile web performance and engagement.
Revamping old systems.
Consider moving older windows applications to PWAs in order to consolidate enterprise architecture.
Focusing on a full circle product.
Design PWA solutions with support for push notifications and offline storage to create applike engagement and performance. However, the UX should assume no service worker support, because iOS devices are not yet enabled.
Know the alternatives.
Presentation Layers that do not require use of native device features should highly consider PWAs as an alternative to native application development.
