Native Mobile vs. Progressive Web App

With just over half of all internet traffic serving mobile devices, your users expect smartphone friendly services. But does that mean you have to invest in the creation and maintenance of native mobile apps?

There is an alternative. Progressive web apps (PWAs) give your users a native app-like experience but, under the hood, they’re just standard web applications with some mobile-friendly additions. The best of both worlds. Depending on your app’s needs, PWAs could help you get to market faster, improve discoverability, and reduce maintenance costs.

In this evaluation guide, we present the pros and cons of PWAs, alongside how the OutSystems app development platform can help. By the end of this guide, you’ll be ready to decide which route to take for your next mobile project.
