7 Reasons to Make your Magento Site a PWA
Progressive web apps are a developing technology, and with Apple now supporting them in the latest iOS update, their time has come.
Transform your Magento website and store into a seamless mobile experience and gain a range of benefits!
What is a Progressive Web App?
Historically, for the most part, websites and apps were two very different beasts requiring duplication of effort (across iOS, Android, and other platforms) and creating competing ways to sell to customers.
Now, fortunately, web coding has caught up with smartphones. Progressive web apps (PWA’s) help your website become the app simplifying the workload for your business.
When accessed, the website creates an app icon (just like a shortcut) on the user’s device taking them straight to the site. It offers the benefits of update alerts always being current and secure by default with HTTPS and transport layer security, and much more.
1. Follow the Trend to Mobile
A growing percentage of users now do their shopping on a mobile device over a desktop website.
Research suggests over 27% will do so in 2018! That figure goes up as the age-range goes down, and mobile devices dominate internet browsing time.
Basically, your audience is going mobile, and you need to follow them. By updating your Magento 2 website to a PWA, you will do this efficiently and save on the cost of app development and subsequent maintenance and updates.
