Progressive Web App Development Services (PWA Development)

Our work   Free quote  

Scorchsoft designs and develops progressive web apps: With PWAs, we can create a powerful interface that blends the best of websites and mobile apps for an entirely user-focused experience. 

With more users browsing on a wide range of devices and from different locations, traditional interfaces might not be cutting it anymore. You need a more modern solution that puts easy-browsing first and isn't limited to specific devices, location, or even connectivity. Here's where progressive web applications (PWAs) come in. 

Cross-Device Support

Before PWAs, every time an application - like a native mobile app - was uploaded to a new operating system, developers had to create new code specifically for it to work. As developers, we know how much time, money, and knowledge this can take, which isn't always an option for businesses. With a PWA, we don't have to do that.

PWAs can work across browsers, devices, and operating systems using the same code. Once we've created your application, it's good to go. You can distribute it wherever you like, helping you reach a wider audience whilst reducing costs and saving time.

Available Offline With Caching

Every progressive web application incorporates a cache. The cache is a store of data that lets your app function offline, helping your users stay connected with your business even when they have no connection themselves. It works by storing the data from user requests and keeping a local copy within the database. When the application is loaded again, the data can be sent to the front end without a network connection, letting users browse on the go even when they're offline. In a busy world that's always on the move, this is a huge benefit. Caching also speeds up loading times. Whilst the initial load may take a little longer to render, every load after that will be rapid. With users expecting quicker loading speeds and leaving websites that don't meet their expectations, the offline cache could become an asset to your application.

Responsive to Different Screens

From their desktop computer to their mobile phone on the go, modern users browse the web using various devices. Each of these devices has a different screen, and your application needs to function correctly no matter what your user is viewing it on. PWAs make that an easy challenge to solve as they work everywhere. By being responsive across devices, your users can switch seamlessly without losing data or seeing changes in any of your features. We'll ensure that your app works without a hitch, no matter where it is.

App Like Experience

Mobile apps are usually much more comfortable to navigate than traditional websites and offer a seamless experience that users love. Progressive web applications have an app-like feel whilst being more versatile and often more powerful. They provide a rich experience on attractive interfaces and work intuitively to help even the most tech-phobic users find them simple to navigate. They also provide answers to some of the problems with apps, like the app store. By bypassing the app store, you don't have to adhere to their strict guidelines, giving us more freedom when creating your PWA. Users don't have to download your PWA, either, making it much more appealing to use.

Approach Used With Many Front-End Frameworks

There are many different technologies involved when making any web application, including a PWA. To make the most of your app, it needs to be compatible with a range of trusted technology and software. Progressive web applications don't let you down here. They're compatible with many popular front end frameworks, including Vie, ReactJS, and any JavaScript framework we can use to make web applications. Because web apps follow the same principles as PWAs, we can use the same frameworks to develop both. It gives you more freedom to choose what you use now and more flexibility for the future. If you find one front end framework that doesn't suit your needs in the long term, you can easily switch to another.
