The growing usage of mobile phones
Because more and more people are only using mobile phones to access their services, our client, a leader cyber-administration platform in Switzerland wants to provide mobile app features to its users.
A website with superpowers that looks like an app
Offline and low network capable, push notifications, geolocation, camera, fingerprint authentication, are features frequently used in our favorite mobile apps. Our client requests to benefit from these mobile device features as well on their website! Is that even possible? To figure it out we built a website as a proof of concept that would include all these features. It's called a Progressive Web Application.
Many benefits and much more to come
Based on W3C standards the website we built has mobile app like capabilities. We don't rely on a store like the App Store or the Play Store, this allows us to deploy faster and simpler, the same goes for development where we can spare some costs. Some features are not available to all mobile phones, yet standardization is moving at a high speed and should bring these features to all devices in a near future.
Web push notifications
Push notification have always been a feature of mobile applications and now they made their way to the standardized web. It is a huge improvement to reconnect with your users
It allows for a better security against identity theft and credential theft. It will be the unavoidable companion of the secure web of tomorrow and today
Offline and low network capable
Even in the worst network condition or no network at all you can reach some critical features of your app. Opening a new case and taking notes even in a train tunnel or a lost forest.
