Episode 7 – Progressive Web Apps (PWD)

In this episode we are focusing on the rise of a new technology for web and mobile named Progressive Web App (PWAs).

These web apps are aimed to replace in the future some native mobile apps by providing a ‘native like’ wrapper on top of a responsive web site.

In this episode we covered the following points:

  • What is PWA?
  • What are the benefits and motivation behind such app?
  • What are the differences between a PWA to RWD vs Native vs Hybrid apps?
  • What are some of the growth challenges behind such apps?

In the upcoming podcasts we will provide a recipe to test such apps on both mobile and web either with Selenium and Appium or through other combination of tool stack.
