PWA technology isn’t a fad, it’s here to stay and change the future of web development. How do we know?

Some of the brightest and best brands, like Uber and Twitter, are jumping on the PWA bandwagon. Here are 9 brilliant examples of big brands using PWAs. So, what does this mean for the future?
Better Mobile Experiences
The term ‘mobile first’ has been around for a long time, and every web designer worth their salt designs a mobile-first experience for their website. This approach means designing for the smallest screen first and scaling up and is based on the fact that most web pages are accessed via smartphones. In 2018 over 50% of all web traffic was generated through mobile phones.
Mobile first design has come on a long way in the past decade and PWAs are the latest development in this field. Native mobile applications have consistently delivered more engaging and more intuitive experiences for users as opposed to websites. It’s why apps became so popular. Progressive Web App technology now means web developers can give their users the best bits of native application experiences, a seamless UX, intuitive navigation, and push notifications for example, without requiring them to download.
