Here’s one of the best essays I’ve ever read about why progressive web apps are important, how they work, and what impact they have on a business:
PWAs are powerful, effective, fast and app-like.
It’s hard to imagine a mobile web property that could not be significantly improved via PWA implementation. They can also potentially eliminate the need for many “vanity” native apps that exist today.
My only small disagreement with this piece is their use of the term “mobile web.” I know it’s a tiny thing to get persnickety over but my hot take after reading it is this: it’s important to remember that progressive web apps are for everyone, desktop, and mobile users alike. I think it’s important to reiterate that there is no mobile web. And that our goal is to be better than native.
