Have you ever wished? Websites run like native mobile apps. Well, the answer is yes.
PWA can make that happen.
A fully functional and responsive website can expose to a lot of limitations when being accessed on mobile devices like slow page load speed, unnecessary URL bar, etc. Due to which business owners and merchants needed an alternative and they found the Progressive Web App (PWA).
Now let’s gain some knowledge about this technology.
What is Progressive Web App (PWA)?
PWA combines the best technologies used in mobile and web applications. To put in simple words, it’s like a website that acts like an application. It offers the user with excellent experience for users across devices, especially on smartphones.
According to DataReportal, 5.19 billion is the number of mobile internet users in Jan 2020.
One of the most frequently asked questions about PWA is “How Much Does A Progressive App Cost”?
Usually, PWA costs from $5,000 in Asia and will cost up to five times in the US and the UK. The pricing will differ depending on the complexion of the original website (including design and functionality requirements) and the web platform. This cost does not include app support and maintenance fees. The cost of creating a Progressive Web Apps seems to be higher than the website development but its worth as PWA brings a lot more amazing features to compare to the website.
Though, the cost of developing PWA is much lower than the cost of native app development. Because you don’t have to create separate apps for iOS and Android. When the native app is released, the developer has to submit it to the app store, further has to wait for approvals and then developers must pay the fee for publishing the apps which range from $25 to $99. Whereas in the case of PWA you don’t have to publish it in any app store thus it saves your submission cost.
Is It Worth The Investment?
PWA investment might not be a big deal for big companies but for small firms or start-ups, this investment can be huge. Therefore, they should consider everything before deciding to build a PWA or not.
Let’s figure out what exactly you will get in return for your investment:
Undoubtedly, the Progressive Web App is beneficial and to create a PWA you have to invest a certain amount of money. It’s worth it since you get the best site performance without using any third-party extension, effective marketing campaigns without paying for e-mail marketing fees, organic site traffic, and rankings.
