Progressive Web App (PWA) VS Native App
First, what is the difference ?
A native application is an application that must be downloaded on iOS or Android. A web application is a highly specialized mobile website that does not require any application download.
The main advantage of web applications is the removal of the installation constraint on mobile devices. In fact, 90% of users are frustrated when they have to download an app to buy a product or try a service.
A native application is quickly uninstalled. 5.8 days is the average number of days that they remain installed on a user’s mobile.
The main causes of uninstallation are: not enough space on the phone and persistant bugs.
Of course, these problems do not exist with a Web Application as there are no storage and automatic updates.
Web applications are booming thanks to three factors:
– lower price of development
– 70% more usage than a native app
