This is an era of the technology, where everything works on the network grids. People are able to access innumerable websites for information and other purposes as well. It is evident that they have been able to get almost everything online.

Presently, the usage of mobile apps has become predominant in the age of online trading.
Mobile apps have become the essential part of one’s life and it helps us to do many different tasks. But, the applications which are e-commerce bound needs to have an internet access. Without an internet access it is hard for us to even use the app itself. The native apps on the smartphone serve the basic purposes like, calling, texting, mailing, music and videos.
On the flip side, the apps which are available on the store perform a lot more than things. So, people do tend to download and install the apps in their smartphones. These apps may serve the purpose, but still it does have a down side to it as well. For an example, we may think that the app which we have installed is a genuine one, but it may be from a hacker would just want to hack the system and get the information, to get away with it.

Hybrid apps are the ones which have the HTML5 code to it and are accessible only if they are downloaded through the store. It uses the technologies which are available on the web and produces it as an app instead of a tool or software.
An application should be designed and developed in such in a way that it grabs the attention of the user. We need to make sure that the user who using the particular app does not lose interest over it. A mobile app has to be endorsed, launched, downloaded, installed and website certainly we use it at the end. It is not the same, when it comes to the progressive web app.
A user can easily start using a progressive web app once they find it on the web. We do not need to download the app or install the app and wait for it to load to use.
