    Hello guys!

    The problem may be relevant for you as well. I’ve reached a point where I’ve decided to make an app for my business. Turns out the issue is not as simple as it was years ago, as now there’s a choice between creating a native app or a progressive web app.

    What should I chose after all - native app or PWA?

    An app to do what?

    Why do you need an app for your business?

    It's for a small online store, so I guess in terms of budget PWA is a better fit. Though apps is a much more familiar thing to work with. Thanks for the article @Scarlett, it's quite convincing.

    I really wouldn't bother. As long as your store is fully responsive an app isn't needed.

    Yes, both of them have their pros and cos. So, basically it comes to your budget, business, requirements, and goals. Also, you can discuss it with your app developer and I am sure you will make a better decision. If you have found one, of course.

    It depends on your business how big it is? In the era of technology, you will have multiple options, but firstly you should have make a business plan, and it should be discussed with App developer then they can properly guide you. Your app developer should know about your goal after that they can give their 100%.

    Choose that one that covers your needs to the full extent.

    You can either way. There are large and small companies that have chosen one or the other. PWA will be easier to deploy to different platforms but native will let you tailor things more. Either one will get you from here to there. While my roofing company does not do any apps, I know a number of companies that have. I think your challenge in the marketing area will be much greater than deciding what platform to build from. Good luck.
