PWAs are Mobile Apps

One of the most attractive features of PWA's is their ability to be added as home screen icons alongside native mobile apps, further blurring the line between the two technologies. Our UI/UX designers will create an on-brand icon for your PWA and ensure the quickest possible load time upon clicking. Like many mobile apps, PWA's can still offer much of its functionality offline.

Native-Feeling Push Notifications

Thanks to service workers - app-independent JavaScript files - we are able to program PWAs with push notification functionality. Even when users do not have the PWA open in a browser, they can receive regularly scheduled or manual notifications that look and behave just like a mobile app push. And because of the inherit nature of PWAs, opting in an out of notifications is even easier.

Indexability And Social

To optimize the PWA for SEO and social engagement, we make sure it is properly indexed and regularly crawled by Google, incorporates markup, and includes Facebook and Twitter Card metadata, canonical URLs and an API to update browser histories. This, matched with PWA's cache-first networking browser agnosticism, truly makes them a versatile application!
