Progressive Web App

The concept of “web application” comes from software engineering. It refers to those tools that users can use via accessing a web server through an internet browser such as Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari. Traditional web applications are installed for Windows, Mac, Android or iOS.

There are also other types of applications that do not depend on any operating system, but run on a web page in a browser, such as notifications, weather consultation, language translators, converting one type of currency into another, etc. To run these applications, it is necessary to consult databases, reconstruct images, make intensive calculations, etc., etc.… Depending on the complexity of the tasks that the web application fulfills, the response time of these applications can be degraded to a point where the User Experience is at risk.

To avoid this, native applications were created for Windows, Mac, Android and iOS platforms. The only purpose native applications have is to obtain the best appearance and the best possible response speed on the operating system’s own platform. The downside of this is that the use of these applications is restricted to users who have that particular operating system.

How could you have the advantages of traditional web applications and the advantages of running native applications regardless of the operating system and the browser that hosts them?

We already have the answer: using PWA.

PWAs are right in the middle between web applications and native applications. PWAs are websites that perform tasks that generally only native applications could perform, guaranteeing a perfect mobile experience from any device and operating system. They are fast and versatile, adapt to any company or business needs and provide an excellent user experience.

At Performa Technologies we are dedicated to offering the best for our clients using cutting-edge technology, efficient web design and programming strategies that will make your PWA generate a qualitative leap in obtaining customers and increasing profits.

App development for your business

By this time, you’ve probably heard your share on the importance of having an online presence for businesses. A good website, accounts on major social media sites, etc. But today we’ll focus on something that gets more and more important by the day: App development for your business.

What is an app? Basically, an application is a software program designed to perform a specific function. There are two types of Apps: the mobile app (the ones you use every day on your phone) and the web app (ones you’ve used without noticing, probably). Web applications are accessed through a browser just like a website but there’s something fundamental that makes them different: the primary function of a web page is providing information, while a web application performs a specific task, like for example letting you access your email or provide an online shopping service.

The great differences between websites and apps (for both mobile and web) cause their creation, use and look to be very different too. A website is usually made of static elements with occasional images and videos to make them more interesting. An app must be interactive and dynamic, making it easy for the user to complete the task the app was designed for.

There are many things to say about app development that we can go about in depth later. But for the business owner seeking to grow, what’s important to know? First, that having an app that can make your product or service more easily available for your potential client would make a huge boost to your sales. Second, for your business app to be successful you need to know your customers very well, and think how could an app help you get your product or service to them. Third, consider the design of the App itself a vital part of how your business presents itself to your customers, since it will become the deciding factor of them engaging with your company or not.
