A Comprehensive Review of Progressive Web Apps: Bridging the Gap Between Web and Native Experiences

Mani Shankar Srinivas Lingolu | Manoj Kumar Dobbala [3]


Abstract: Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) have emerged as a transformative technology, redefining the landscape of web development by combining the best features of web applications and native mobile apps [1]. This comprehensive literature review paper provides an in-depth exploration of the PWA ecosystem, tracing its historical evolution and examining the key advancements that have shaped its trajectory. The paper delves into the core capabilities of PWAs, highlighting how they leverage modern web technologies, such as service workers, web app manifests, and responsive design principles [2], to deliver an engaging and seamless user experience. Through an analysis of existing research, the review explores the performance benefits of PWAs, demonstrating how they can outperform traditional web apps and even native mobile applications in terms of loading speeds [3], offline accessibility [4], and overall responsiveness. Furthermore, the paper examines the cross-platform compatibility of PWAs, revealing their ability to provide a consistent user experience across a wide range of devices, from desktops to smartphones and tablets [5]. The review also delves into the challenges and best practices surrounding the successful adoption and deployment of PWAs, addressing security, privacy, and integration concerns [6]. By synthesizing the findings from various studies, this literature review offers valuable insights into the current state of PWA adoption and the emerging trends that are shaping the future of web development. The paper concludes by discussing the broader implications of PWAs, exploring their potential to revolutionize user engagement [7], improve accessibility [8], and drive innovation in the technology landscape [9].
