How to Convert Any Website into a Mobile App Using Appdome Secure PWA

Last updated December 10, 2023 by Appdome

Learn how to convert any website into a secure mobile application in minutes – no code or coding required.

This Knowledge Base article explains how developers or non-developers can use Appdome Secure PWA to convert any website into an Android or iOS mobile application that runs on any mobile device and delivers a native mobile experience.

What is a Progressive Web App (PWA)?

progressive web application (PWA) is a type of application delivered over the web and built by using common web technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. PWAs can run on any mobile device and provide a native-like mobile experience. PWAs typically offer a broader set of native OS controls and richer user experiences because they fill several key functional gaps that were missing from traditional hybrid applications, such as push notifications, offline access, and data synchronization. This enables richer mobile experiences and results in a user experience that is much closer to true native apps. PWAs also have more packaging flexibility than native apps and don’t require centralized distribution through public app stores, which many organizations and developers find useful and flexible.

What is Appdome Secure PWA?

Appdome Secure PWA is a no-code mobile development framework that enables anyone to convert any website into a mobile application in minutes – no code or coding required. Using Appdome, anyone can build a progressive web app (PWA) that runs on any iOS or Android device with a native-like experience. The only thing you need to convert any website into a mobile application is a reachable website. Simply input an existing URL into Appdome’s app builder, select your choice of platform (Android, iOS, or cross-platform), and click Convert To App. Within minutes, the Appdome platform automatically converts the website into a mobile application that will run natively on any mobile device for the platform you selected.

Once you have created your mobile application, you can optionally implement your choice of Appdome mobile app security features and build your custom security model directly into the app – all within the same no-code workflow.
