Web applications and mobile apps are the most demanded platforms in the 21st century. For a non-technical person, there’s barely any difference. However, a knowledgeable person knows that they are different in many distinct and unique ways. These differences are not only just for the users but for the web application development services company as well.
- Web Application needs an active internet connection all the time for it to work on your devices. On the other hand, a mobile app works even if you are not plugged in with WWW!
- Web application most of the time relies on your server’s capability to get things done. No matter how powerful your PC configuration is, if the server is slow, you won’t get anything. Mobile App can create better business practices and utilize the full resource of the device and it barely depends on the server.
- A web app has a standard code base over all platforms and all users are always using the exact same version. For a mobile app, finding out who is using which version is completely shrouded in mystery.
- Want to use the web app? Simply type the URL and that’s it, you are done. For the mobile app, you must go to their respective online store to install and use the application.
- If we talk about the cost, then our years of experience as a web and mobile application Development Company suggests that Mobile app development is a bit expensive. However, mobile application does perform a lot faster. See No. 2 point to know why.
- Web app generally doesn’t follow any OS guidelines. Since a browser is what you need. So, there’s no need for approval. On the other hand, to upload the mobile app in the app store, the app owner must take approval from the store regulator.
- A Mobile app has access to other native hardware components such as sensors like GPS, microphone, camera, etc., which improve customer interactions and experience, whereas web apps have a lack of such facilities.
