Progressive Web App Development

What is PWA?

Progressive Web Apps are fast becoming the standard for mobile users, and businesses everywhere need to adapt quickly. If your company is still trying to figure out just what a Progressive Web App is, you’re not alone. However, if you’ve read this far, it means you’re interested in learning more about them and how your business can develop them effectively.

A Progressive Web App is a user experience that combines the best of the regular website and native app. Think of it as a single app that works across platforms, devices, and browsers. In other words, you can use it anytime, anywhere, and on any device. You’ll never have to download a new app again!

This new breed of hybrid apps is designed to work in all modern browsers and devices. It can be added to a user’s home screen, just like a native app. Once added, PWAs open like a regular mobile app. They load instantly and are always available offline. PWAs are also app-like in the sense that they’re discoverable: search engines can discover, index, and rank them as they do with apps. Users can also receive push notifications from PWAs.

 Reasons to Choose PWA for Your Web and Mobile App

Installable

An app that can be added to the home screen will be installed on the device by the user without any effort on the developer’s part. Being installable allows users to engage more with your content, as they don’t have to go through an app store to find and launch your app.

Responsive

A PWA should be responsive, so it will work well on any device. This means it will look good on both desktop and mobile devices, as well as any device in between.

If a user loads a PWA on a desktop computer, it will fill the entire screen. Then, if the same user accesses the same PWA on a tablet, it will adjust itself to fit the screen of that device.

Fast and Reliable

The experience of using a PWA should be native-like, including a buttery-smooth user experience. PWAs should load quickly, and be reliable, meaning they should load every time, and not crash.

Can be Launched from the Home Screen

If a user adds an app to their home screen, it means they want to engage with it more often. For example, if a user adds your PWA to their home screen, they can launch the app from their home screen at any time.

If they don’t add your app to their home screen, they might only use it once. On the other hand, if they add your app to their home screen, they might use it multiple times throughout the day.

Discoverable

To discover your app, users will go through their web browsers, rather than the app store. Being discoverable means that users can find your PWA through search engines like Google, or through links shared on social media.

PWA – MARKET SYNOPSIS

Full Report

What are investors looking for in this market?

According to Emergen Research, the global progressive web application market is expected to be worth USD 10.44 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 31.9%.

The development of progressive web applications has drawn attention over the last few years, because they provide an easy development process and a pleasant user experience. Because these applications are built using web technology, they do not require separate distribution.

The Asia Pacific region is expected to experience a significant growth of 33.3% during the forecast period.

According to the report, the Asia Pacific market is projected to witness a high CAGR during the forecast period, mainly due to the emergence of numerous small and medium-sized enterprises. However, the low browser support might reduce the rate of penetration of PWA technology in the region.

PWA Discovery & Design Stage

Empathizing

  • Defining and understanding the participants and roles in the product being created – in the development process and in the target solution
  • Defining and understanding the end user

Problem definition

  • Defining the problem that exists in the market for a given user profile
  • Frame your problem statement according to specific users

Ideation

  • User story mapping. Defining the Product Backlog (scope of work) with the help of User Stories describing the processes
  • Sketches (low fidelity) presenting the user flow in the application
  • Definition of processes interacting with other modules

Building prototypes

  • High fidelity wireframes visualizing the graphical interface
  • Extending mockups with a clickable prototype
  • Database structure. Database model describing table and field structure

UI/UX Product Design

The key is to select the most important problems whose solution will significantly change the life of the target user. Thanks to such an approach, already at the stage of Discovery and Design, it will be possible to build a successful product on the market much faster. It is always worth asking yourself the question “what value does the feature give to our user? Is it worth the investment?”

Budlex

From the beginning, GMI was able to anticipate possible risks and interruptions. The design environment was adapted to our working mode and was simple enough for the product owner to meet his requirements and those of the development team.

Thanks to the great attention to the quality of the code, the project was delivered on time and there were no internal complications associated with the product development. However, there were external complications (service providers), which GMI helped to solve with us.

Coders Lab

With the greatest pleasure and full responsibility, we recommend GMI as a professional contractor for web applications and CMS systems. We chose GMI primarily because they approached our inquiry very professionally. Very fluent contact at an early stage of talks announced that the implementation would be equally efficient and it actually was.

If there is an opportunity in the future to jointly implement another project, we will definitely use the services of GMI again.
