Overview

Progressive Web Apps (PWA) have become increasingly popular as developers are attracted to the hybrid approach of regular web apps and mobile apps. While it does not suite every target use, this methodology does bring many of the best features of browser-based apps with the benefits of a mobile solution.

A PWA includes features that let you make your web app look more like a native mobile app. You can create icons on your home screen to launch the app, and get full-screen execution, making it look just like a native app. You can pre-cache key resources to both make the response faster and provide access to functionality even while offline. You even re-engage users through push notifications.

Kendo UI and PWAs, a Perfect Match

To be successful, a PWA needs to be able to deliver the look and feel of a native web app. This calls for a UI with full functionality that can match the features a user gets with their installed apps. And, of course, to really satisfy the demands of a mobile app you need a UI that is completely responsive. What does this all mean for you as a developer? It means you need Kendo UI. Kendo UI delivers the high performance, full featured, responsive experience that your users expect from modern apps. Developers who need the best in UI components for their PWA development turn to Kendo UI.
