Native apps and Progressive Web Apps (PWA) are two different types of applications that can be used on mobile devices.
Installation: Native apps need to be downloaded and installed on a user’s device from the App Store or Google Play, while PWAs can be accessed directly through a web browser and can be installed on the device’s home screen.
Accessibility: Native apps need to be installed on a device and can only be accessed on the device on which they are installed. On the other hand, PWAs can be accessed through a web browser and can be accessed from any device with an internet connection.
Functionality: Native apps have access to device-specific features, such as the camera, microphone, and GPS, which can enable advanced features and better user experiences. PWAs are generally limited to the features that are available through the web browser, although they can still provide a rich user experience.
Updates: Native apps require regular updates, which need to be downloaded and installed by users. PWAs are updated automatically and do not require any user intervention.
Native apps offer more advanced functionality and better user experience, but require more development time and resources. PWAs, on the other hand, are more accessible and require less maintenance, but may be limited in functionality. The choice between the two depends on the specific needs of the business or organization and the target audience.
