progressive Web app

A progressive Web app (PWA) is a website-based application accessed via the browser that is able to take advantage of advanced capabilities in the browser and device it is running in. For example, a PWA may take advantage of autofilling forms, especially useful on small screens. It may also support payment services such as Apple Pay and Google Pay, as well as the device's GPS and camera. See Web application.

A PWA may incorporate responsive Web design (RWD), which adapts to the size of the screen from phone to desktop (see responsive Web design). Contrast with native mobile app.
