Web application - unknown term?

We associate the word application primarily with smartphones. Daily questions in stores about a mobile application that gives discounts are already the norm we are used to. However, the word "web" may raise doubts. Spend a few minutes on this article and you'll find out everything. We will tell you now - you use these solutions every day when surfing the Internet. Check how different them from regular websites.

What is it exactly?

The website only gives you the opportunity to read the information contained therein. You can read the content, watch the movie and possibly click to go to the next subpages. Thanks to the web application, you can interact, e.g. enter data. To help you understand the dry facts, we'll give you an example. Imagine opening a browser and typing in the address of your favorite movie theater. If you can only read the repertoire, read reviews and watch movie trailers, then you are on the site. However, if you have the option of logging in, booking seats and buying tickets, you are already dealing with a web application with an interface. When you search for YouTube videos, write an e-mail, buy a book in an online store - you always use the application. Simple isn't it? You already know what web applications are, now see how you can use them in your company.

Application types

There are a lot of them, they are created in response to customer needs and technological progress. The most frequently used applications are:

  • transaction (payments in online stores, banks, auction sites)
  • sales (purchase offers)
  • classified ads (services, sales)
  • booking (cinemas, theaters, hotels)
  • e-learning (exercises, e.g. foreign languages, tests)

What should you know about app development?

Programmers use solutions that will enable functional management of company-client relations. They have more programming languages ​​at their disposal than with pages. In developing applications, the most frequently used programming languages ​​are PHP and JavaScript, which work very well with SaaS (Service-as-a-Service) products. An interesting case from a programming point of view are websites built on CMS (including WordPress, Joomla, Typo3) - here we distinguish them by function. If they are purely informative, they should be considered pages, not applications. In the case of websites, creators mainly work with HTML files and CSS styles. As you can see, web development and application development are very different.

Convenience and safety of use

These are the two most important advantages of the application, important both for the supplier and the recipient. The applications are available both on the computer and on mobile devices such as tablets or smartphones. In a word, everyone who has Internet access and works with any operating system. The great advantage of this solution is the care for data security - even if the device fails, the entire database is available on an external server. Stubborn popup update reminders do not appear on users' devices. Not having to remember about them is another issue that speaks in favor of the applications - the software is updated by server owners who watch over its functionality.

What technology to choose to create an application?

Before you learn about the technological possibilities that will help you improve your website, think about what exactly you want to offer to your visitors. Java is great for large projects with a team of developers. Are you planning something smaller, based rather on artificial intelligence? Consider coding in Python. Of course, an extremely important factor is the budget you have prepared for creating the application. When choosing a technology, be sure to check which ones are supported and updated. Accurate planning of work and getting acquainted with the offers guarantee the success of the project. If you want to be sure that your application will work flawlessly, constantly develop, and all data will be properly secured, contact us - after consultation and analysis, we will create a product tailored to your expectations and funds.
