Progressive Web App Key Features
The mobile web application is sensitive to various screen sizes and orientation changes: landscape, portrait. In other words, the look and feel of the mobile web app seamlessly morphs into the screen size of users’ devices.
You can offer your users an exceptional reading experience by giving them a mobile web application with a native app-like look & feel. The default theme comes with 6 abstract covers that are randomly displayed on the loading screen to give the app a magazine flavour.
Once a favorite theme has been selected, you can customise the colors & fonts, add your logo and graphic elements that can relate to your blog’s identity.
The articles/posts inside the mobile web application are organized into their corresponding categories, thus readers can simply swipe through articles and jump from category to category in a seamless way.
Choose what pages you want to display on your mobile web application. You can edit, show/hide different pages and order them according to your needs.
All the comments that are displayed in the blog are also synchronised into the mobile web application. On top of that, comments that are posted from within the app are also displayed on the blog.
