Turn your website into a near-native app with the PWA setting
From Wednesday, 29.08.2018
Q1: Does the user need to access the website first in order to save it as an 'app' on their phone?
A: Yes, in order to be able to cache the site, the visitor needs to access the website through their browser and then add it to their home screen.
Q2: Does Mono charge for the PWA feature?
A: No, it's completely free! You will be able to use it regardless of site subscription type.
Q3: Will you have any stats to report on this (KPI) to help showcase the value of it?/ reporting on the apps?
A: No, we do not have any site specific statistics from the App. However, generally speaking, AppInstitute (2017) states an average increase of more than 68% in mobile traffic from PWAs. For end users, use cases document 70% less data usage, 24x less storage, and drastically faster load times.
Q4: What content types will be cached? Text and photos?
A: Exactly, both text and pictures will be cached in the PWA.
Q5: What happens if I click on an external link on a site opened as an app with PWA?
A: The link will open in your default browser.
