About web apps
We can better understand web applications is to thinking of a website built and optimized to be accessed from smartphones. We need to distinguish between a mobile application and a web application in the first phase because they are different.
A web application is loaded from a browser, while a classic mobile application is installed locally on the device. For example, web apps are also not specific to a particular operating system, Android or IOS.
However, as a way of working, web applications behave precisely like native mobile applications.
Web applications are more versatile, they do not consume the resources of the user's smartphone, and their indexing in search engines is an additional benefit for your business. Such an application can successfully replace your site, and you will save resources simultaneously. Isn't that an interesting combination?
When to develop a web app?
There is practically no perfect time to choose to develop a mobile web application. However, if you are a start-up with a limited budget and your goal is to be found by as many potential customers as possible, the benefits of such an approach will be desirable. If you've been curious, here are some situations when it's time to think about a web application:
When you want to launch a single application compatible with all platforms.
If you want to develop a classic mobile application, you will have to decide which platform to approach first, depending on your budget and priorities. If you still don't know which option would be more appropriate, go for a web application.
When you want your application to be available to users as soon as possible.
Web applications take quite a while to develop. However, keep in mind that these applications are more straightforward in terms of functionality.
When your business model is based on online interactions.
When you look at such an application, you want to think about this detail; it will be available to users only if there is an internet connection. But you should know that certain types of web applications, advanced web applications, can work offline. They are somehow between a native mobile application and a classic web application.
If you have a start-up and want your users to find you easily.
A web application will be accessible to users on both desktop and mobile. Your app will also be available online and easily found on Google by a simple search; so is your business. People don't search the same way they do on Google in mobile app marketplaces.
Web Application Development Using React
It is a mature framework, supported by Facebook, especially the choice for start-up companies. It is known in the world of developers everywhere and offers increased flexibility. It is not a complete framework; it uses various libraries depending on the desired functionality. It has a mid-level learning curve.
Web Application Development using Angular
First released in 2010 with Google behind it, Angular is a complete development framework. It is preferred by the corporate area, being suitable for working in large teams and large products. It has a more complex learning curve than the two direct competitors.
Web Application Development using Vue.js
Vue is the easiest of the three frameworks to learn. It offers a high degree of flexibility, but at the same time, being an easier to use the framework, it is even more permissive with mistakes or poorly written code, thus making it harder to troubleshoot in case of bugs and errors.
Application development using Low-code / No-code
Low-code / no-code application development is becoming more and more popular. This technology allows fewer technical people to build mobile or web applications. Low-code platforms require little software development knowledge and no-code platforms at all. With drag and drop interfaces, it becomes possible even for someone who does not know programming to create their mobile application. The possibilities thus become unlimited for companies.
Why web applications?
Because they're economical.
You will undoubtedly have to spend less on developing a mobile web application than native, platform-specific applications. When the budget is limited, it is a very efficient option. A well-designed web application will even be able to replace your business website, thus contributing to significant cost savings.
Because they use the same code and are compatible with multiple platforms, they are easier to maintain in the long run. These applications run virtually directly from the browser. A relevant example in this regard is the updates that are very easy to do in the case of web applications. Once the update has been made, it will be available to anyone accessing the app without any additional effort.
Better accessibility for users
It is becoming more and more difficult to reach users with classic mobile applications. According to studies, the trend to download and use new native apps is declining. Developing a web application removes all these inconveniences because it is accessible with just one click, and it does not need to be installed locally.
