Why choose Jotform and Progressier for your PWA?

Jotform Apps already allow you to turn your forms into fully-fledged PWAs. However, there are a few reasons why you might want to consider using Progressier alongside what JotForm offers right out of the box.

How to make Jotform apps installable on iOS

The default Jotform iOS integration isn't the most seamless. With Progressier, custom iOS instructions for adding your app to your home screen are always available on screen, which generally results in a higher install rate. Also Progressier tracks install numbers across browsers, which Jotform does not.

Get an install page for your Jotform PWA

There is a common misconception floating around that an app must come from an app store or it's not an app. That paradigm might have made sense a decade ago, but not so much nowadays. Progressier was designed so that you can provide your users with a familiar app store experience, but without the hassle of managing listings on App Store and Google Play.

Can you send push notifications from a Jotform PWA?

Yup! Progressier prompts users to allow notifications. You can then use our dashboard to notify all your push subscribers in one go by push message. Note that programmatic personalized notifications are not supported with Jotform.

How to host a Jotform PWA on your own domain?

In addition to the install page mentioned above, Progressier provides you with a custom domain for your Jotform PWA in the format elonmusk.installable.app (where you can choose the slug that comes before the root domain, obviously). Alternatively, you can download our files and embed the whole thing on a custom domain of your choice.

Is Jotform the right tool for creating a PWA?

It's nowhere near as powerful as Webflow or Bubble. But it's a decent tool to build internal business apps. Interestingly, the Jotform demo is a Sneaker Shop. I'm not sure whether many people use Jotform to build online stores but I think there is a better case to be made that the actual use case for Jotform as a PWA builder is internal apps (which they actually do advertise as Jotform Enterprise Mobile).

I think I'd only recommend Jotform if your goal is to build simple internal apps and if it's already your go-to form builder. Else, there are definitely better options for that particular purpose (Jotform is pretty awesome for pure forms though!).

Which PWA features does Jotform support?

Android Installation

Your Jotform PWA is installable on Android tablets or smartphones in a click.

iOS Installation

Let users add your Jotform PWA to their home screen with our custom iOS install prompt.

Windows Installation

Your PWA can be installed from Chrome and Edge to your users' Desktop and/or Taskbar.

macOS Installation

Progressier helps users add your Jotform PWA to their Docks for quick access.

Chrome OS Installation

Progressier is also a great solution to get your app installed on Chrome OS.

Install Page

Get a unique Install Page for your app that promotes installation of your PWA and guides users with custom instructions for each platform.

Original Domain Installation

Your Jotform PWA can be installed from your existing domain.

Web App Manifest

A web app manifest is a basic browser requirement for PWAs. Progressier outputs it automatically based on your preferences.

Service Worker

A service worker is the mechanism that browsers use to deliver push notifications. It can also intercept network requests and cache resources. With Jotform, it's not possible to add a service worker to your PWA.

Cache Static Resources

With Jotform, it's not possible to cache static resources. No service worker = no caching possible, unfortunately.

100% Offline-Ready

Without full server-side control over the resources, it's not usually possible to make a site work offline entirely with a no-code app builder like Jotform.

Push Campaigns

Send push notifications to up to 1,000,000 users in one go within the Progressier dashboard or via the API.

Personalized Notifications

This functionality lets you notify a particular user programmatically. Unfortunately, this feature is not currently supported by Jotform.

Connect User Data

With Jotform, it's not currently possible to sync your user data (e.g. emails, names or account types). Bubble is the best no-code option for that.

In-App PWA Promotion

A set of tools that allow you to promote installation of your PWA within the body of your app, including custom install buttons and floating action buttons.

Offline Alerts

Let users know when they lose their Internet connection.

Push Prompt on Standalone

Prompt users to allow push notifications right after they have installed your app. Less intrusive = better conversion rate.

Install & Push Analytics

See in real-time and track over time how users install your PWA and allow push notifications.

Programmatic PWA Creation

Progressier does not allow to create Jotform apps dynamically.

Google Play & App Store Upload

Easily upload your app to Google Play or the App Store with our PWABuilder integration.
