The distinction between websites and web apps is often fuzzy, and can be quite subjective. In a very broad sense, a web app is a software application that can be accessed via the internet. This means that no new software needs to be installed, and the functioning of the app is dependent on your browser, rather than on your operating system. The advantage of this is that, unlike local software that needs installing, you don’t need any extra disk space to run a web app and you’re guaranteed to always be using the latest version. And, since it can be accessed from anywhere with internet, you don’t have to stick to a single computer. Most modern web apps are also mobile-friendly, making them easily accessible regardless of where you might be. Interactive sites such as Dropbox, Facebook and Twitter are all examples of web apps, whereas a news site or a blog are simply websites.
The fact that web apps are so accessible makes them an excellent way for a business to interact with clients. Whether your aim is to promote your organisation through an interactive medium, or to create a useful online tool that is easily accessible, Succinct Design can help you make your idea a reality.
