The web is advancing at an unprecedented rate, and we should be taking advantage of this. I go over what makes a PWA amazing and how to make beautiful web apps that blur the lines with native apps, with their UI and offline capabilities; so much so that users might not even tell the difference.

Most people think if they want to build an app they must build two apps for Android or iOS. The web has become so much more powerful in what we can do though. JavaScript frameworks allow developers to build powerful web app with a fraction of the time and resources of native apps. While tools like Ionic are allowing developers to make beautiful web apps that look and behave so much like native application with their UI and offline capabilities; so much so that users might not even tell the difference. Even cooler is now you can install apps from the web onto your phone like a native app. The web is advancing at an unprecedented rate, and you should be taking advantage of this.
