Why build PWAs with Flutter?

There are a number of benefits to building PWAs with Flutter, including:

  • Native performance: Flutter apps are compiled to native machine code, which means that they offer native performance on all devices.

Here are some tips for building successful PWAs:

  • Focus on the user experience: PWAs should be fast, reliable, and engaging. Make sure that your PWA is easy to use and that it provides a good user experience on all devices.
  • Use offline support: PWAs should be able to work offline, so that users can continue to use them even when they don’t have an internet connection.
  • Make it installable: PWAs can be installed on devices just like native apps. This makes them more convenient for users and it can help to improve your PWA’s engagement.
