Abstract: A recent advancement of the mobile web has enabled features previously only found in natively developed apps. Thus, arduous development for several platforms or using cross-platform approaches was required. The novel approach, coined Progressive Web Apps, can be implemented through a set of concepts and technologies on any web site that meets certain requirements. In this paper, we argue for progressive web apps as a possibly unifying technology for web apps and native apps. After an introduction of features, we scrutinize the performance. Two cross-platform mobile apps and one Progressive Web App have been developed for comparison purposes, and provided in an open source repository for results’ validity verification. We aim to spark interest in the academic community, as a lack of academic involvement was identified as part of the literature search.
