Web mobile application development is what we all are aware of, yes. But with mobile apps taking the world by storm, only some entrepreneurs and coders know the importance and use of this kind of app development. This doesn’t in any way mean that the domain is any less critical.
Since a handful of people know about this procedure inside and out, it might appear a little difficult to others. This is where I come in! You don’t have to be hopeless about understanding a term, its importance, or its usage. Why – because we come up with tech write-ups for you.
The one you are reading right now serves the purpose of helping you understand trending tech terms and topics better!
So, dear readers, this blog will take you through the basic know-how of the above-mentioned app development. It is for everybody who seeks help in this regard- readers, tech-enthusiasts, entrepreneurs (budding and established), students, engineers, etc.
Without beating around the bush or further delay, let us get to business already!
What do we understand by this kind of development?
Before we delve into the heading, let us understand what a corresponding application or app is. It is an interactive computer program built using technologies like HTML, CSS, JS, etc. It stores and manipulates data and is used by users to perform tasks over the internet.
Let us now understand the development process. As the name suggests, it involves building or creating a web application. Basically, it is the creation of app programs residing on remote servers, which are delivered through the internet to the user’s device.
There are several procedures involved in this development process, like – identifying and defining the problem, thinking about solutions, interacting with users, choosing a framework, building the app, testing it (finally).
How is this different from mobile applications?
The catch here is that web apps can be used over several devices or over a browser. Therefore, the “v/s bit” should be between ‘native mobile apps’ and ‘mobile web-apps.’
Native applications are specifically built for different platforms – Android or iOS. Developing them is a costly business. In order to be stored in our devices, they need to be downloaded. They take space in our devices and are (obviously) tied to them. They are in demand as they offer a highly personalised experience to users.
The latter (also) can be used easily on any device; the added advantage is they can be accessed through a browser too! Since they are accessed through a network, it doesn’t need to be downloaded. They don’t take up space in users’ devices. Another benefit to opt for web-apps is the money-saving aspect – they are viable and cost-effective!
Is a website contrasting to an app or not?
For obvious reasons, it is cardinal to understand the difference between a web app and a website.
Web-apps are dynamic applications that interact with users based on their input and let them perform tasks over the internet. They are designed to help users solve a problem by performing specific tasks.
On the other hand, a website is a static page that gives out information and is not input dependable. The websites exist to provide information.
The basic difference, hence, depends on the interaction part. The former is defined by their input and the latter by their output.
Let us not forget to discuss the BENEFITS, right!
Let me keep it simple and crisp so that the advantages of choosing web applications settle with you quite soon.
Please have a look at the benefits:
- They can help you streamline your business operations and hence, help you be more efficient.
- They can be accessed 24x7 with ease. Just make sure you have an uninterrupted internet connection.
- Their maintenance and installation are not an issue, as they are not to be downloaded.
- Such platforms are scalable and can be very easily customised. As they can be made according to the needs of your business, they prove to be highly flexible too.
- They are tighter with regards to security. As the data is stored in the cloud, one doesn’t need to be really bothered if the device gets damaged, as the data remains secure.
