How to Download the Progressive Web App for Mobile

What is a Progressive Web App? A progressive web app (PWA) is a website that looks and behaves as if it is a mobile app. PWAs are built to take advantage of native mobile device features, without requiring the end user to visit an app store, make a purchase and download software locally.

Downloads take place easily just by visiting the website and installing directly from the browser. 

To get an enhanced mobile experience and allow for mobile push notifications when new messages come in, we have created a Progressive Web App that can be added to your phone and used like a mobile app.
