Why choose Adalo and Progressier for your PWA?

Joining the ranks of Webflow and Bubble, Adalo emerges as a fresh player in the no-code app creation space. Their recent $8 million Series A funding attests to their growing presence. Distinguishing itself from platforms like Wix and Squarespace, Adalo focuses on crafting apps rather than websites, streamlining the process of developing web apps and introducing them to Google Play and the App Store.

Yet, to ensure your apps are universally accessible without navigating the intricacies of Google and Apple, look to Progressier.

The inner workings of an Adalo-based PWA

After finalizing your app on Adalo, you receive a web link. Just register with Progressier, provide this link when asked, and voila! Progressier autonomously constructs a bespoke installation page for your application, like A single link suffices for all platforms.

Incorporating Progressier also grants you access to a holistic push notification system. The system intuitively prompts users to enable notifications. Once done, you can design, preview, and dispatch push notifications to your app's users, all without touching a single line of code.

Installation Page

An app-store like installation experience for your PWA — without the hassle of managing Google Play/App Store listings.

Original Domain Installation

Due to the limitations of the platform, it's not possible to install your app as PWA from your own domain. Progressier provides an alternative custom domain for installation purposes that looks like

Web App Manifest

Progressier creates an app manifest with the name, logo, theme color and display preferences of your PWA.

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, Adalo 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 Adalo.

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 Adalo, 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

Everything you need to encourage users to install your app on their devices.

Offline Alerts

Display an in-app alert when users go offline.

Request Notifications After Installation

Automatically prompt users to authorize notifications after they've installed your PWA on their device.

Install & Push Analytics

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

Programmatic PWA Creation

Progressier does not allow to create Adalo apps dynamically.

Google Play & App Store Upload

Since Adalo doesn't allow their users to install PWAs from their own domain, it's not possible to make it available through Google Play or the App Store as a PWA.
