Why choose Jotform and Progressier for your PWA?

While Jotform Apps lets you transform your forms into full-fledged PWAs, there are advantages to incorporating Progressier with JotForm's native offerings.

Enhancing Jotform app's installability on iOS

Jotform's native iOS integration can be improved. Progressier ensures your users always see on-screen instructions for adding your app to their home screen, leading to better installation rates. Moreover, Progressier monitors installations across different browsers, a feature Jotform lacks.

Securing an installation page for your Jotform PWA

There's a widespread belief—perhaps a myth—that only apps from an app store are legitimate. This perspective might've held water years ago, but times have changed. Progressier empowers you to give users an app-store-like experience without the complexities of managing store listings.

Push notifications with Jotform PWA: Possible?

Absolutely! With Progressier, users are prompted to enable notifications. Through our dashboard, you can effortlessly send a notification to all your subscribers. However, note that Jotform doesn't support tailored programmatic notifications.

Hosting your Jotform PWA on a custom domain

Beyond the installation page, Progressier offers a tailored domain for your Jotform PWA in the style of (you can pick the initial slug). If you prefer, you can fetch our resources and host everything on a domain you own.

Is Jotform tailored for PWA creation?

While it might not rival giants like Webflow or Bubble, Jotform is competent for crafting business-centric apps. Interestingly, they even showcase a Sneaker Store demo. Though I'm skeptical about its popularity for e-commerce, Jotform might find its sweet spot as an internal PWA maker, a point they emphasize with Jotform Enterprise Mobile.

I'd likely recommend Jotform for those aiming to design basic internal tools, especially if they're familiar with its form-building functionalities. For anything more ambitious, there are superior alternatives. However, Jotform remains unmatched for straightforward form creation.

Original Domain Installation

Web App Manifest

Progressier builds a PWA manifest with your preferences set in the dashboard, with toggles and inputs instead of lines of code

Service Worker

A service worker is a file that continues running in the browser even after the web page that has registered it has closed. For a domain to be a PWA, it must have a service worker hosted at the root. Unfortunately, Jotform does not support adding a service worker to your domain.

Cache Static Resources

This platform doesn't provide an option to modify the service worker file, so it's not possible to cache static resources.

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

Notify all your users of news in your app with our dashboard and/or API. Progressier manages all user push subscriptions for you.

Personalized Notifications

Other app builders allow you to send notifications to a particular user. It's not currently possible with this platform.

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

Promote installation of your PWA with a floating action button in the body of your app.

Offline Alerts

Show a custom alert when a user loses network connectivity.

Request Notifications After Installation

Progressier asks users to allow notifications right after they've installed your app, which generally results in a higher subscription rate

Install & Push Analytics

Progressier tracks installs of your Jotform PWA over time. Also tracks push subscriptions.

Programmatic PWA Creation

Progressier does not allow to create Jotform apps dynamically.
