Why a progressive web app (PWA)?
Uses less data. An app which takes close to 1 GB as a native app, can be reduced to about 50 MBs when made an PWA. No updates required. You always have access to the latest version. No need to update every now and then. No install required. These are simple web-pages, no need to install Labstep to start using. Sharing is easy. You can share a PWA with its URL. You just need a browser. You do not need a particular operating system e.g. only IOS or android. PWAs work on any device and any browser.
