We like creating interesting, distinctive, and pleasant online experiences with the most up-to-date web design technologies. That’s why we’re so excited about Progressive Online Apps (PWAs), which combine the greatest elements of mobile and web development. You shouldn’t, however, take our word for it. PWAs are already being used to achieve higher efficiency by some of the most technologically sophisticated organizations. There’s obviously something to get excited about if it’s good enough for Twitter, Instagram, and Uber.
Here are a few of the greatest examples of businesses that use PWAs:
PWA technology is being used by Twitter for its Twitter Lite platform. In April 2017, this became the default mobile web experience for everyone logging into Twitter — which is about 100 million people each day! What are the advantages of Twitter Lite over the standard app? For starters, it takes up less data, it is 3 percent less disk space for the Android version. It also saves a significant amount of data. Twitter claims that as a result of this, the number of Tweets has increased by 75%, .The average number of pages per session has grown by 65%, while the bounce rates have dropped by 20%.
Uber is synonymous with technological upheaval, and they’ve been fast to adopt PWAs as well. You may have a ride using Uber’s PWA without having to download and install the regular Uber mobile app. It’s really small, with the main service taking up only 50kb, allowing it to load rapidly even over the slowest connections. Uber’s PWA technology allows it to load in as little as two seconds, which will help them rank higher on Google because its algorithm favors fast-loading sites.
You’ll be using a Progressive Web App (PWA) if you visit Instagram on your mobile device right now. You used to be limited to only browsing your timeline or profile due to a lack of capability. The PWA now looks and functions much like a regular app. You may submit photos as usual, but not everything is available. You won’t be able to utilize Instagram Stories or tag users. It appears that Instagram would prefer that you download the app.
When you consider Pinterest’s user interface and design, you can see why they chose to use Progressive Web App technology. Because of the site’s image-heavy nature, its conventional mobile experience was sluggish. As a consequence, they couldn’t persuade anyone to download or sign up for the app. Their PWA allows users to add it to their home page without having to download or install anything. Time spent on the mobile site has increased by 40%, while user-generated ad income has increased by 44%.
Hopefully, these large businesses adopting Progressive Web Apps have encouraged you to do the same! There are several advantages of using this technology. Faster loading times, app-like experiences, no downloads, and less data consumption. If that isn’t enough to pique your interest, consider higher conversion rates, engagement rates, and mobile revenue.
