While browsing the internet have you ever come across a website with an “Add to Home Screen” banner? When you click on the banner, the application installs itself? When you open the application, you have the same experience as the website, but on your mobile phone. What you have is a mobile app that has been downloaded from a web application. You are doing all this without using the app store. Getting the app was very easy, and you can browse any content even without any internet connection. Generally, you can access the app offline. This is called progressive web applications from your browser window, and the app will be available on your phone similar to a native app, which works offline.

It’s also being used in several industries including the medical and education sectors.
Augmented Reality (AR) is continually growing as a tech concept and finding its way into everyday business concepts. What was initially an innovation primarily for gaming is now acquiring applicability in areas such as navigation and in the creation of more user interactive systems. AR has managed, rather quietly, to branch into smaller devices such as smartphones, where it has also been incorporated into everyday mobile applications.
