In this article, we are going to provide you with a complete guide on web apps and explain why your business needs one. Keep reading!

What's a web app?

A web app is a computer software that executes a specific task using a web browser. Some web apps need server-side processing because they are dynamic. Others require no server processing because they are entirely static.

Web applications vs other types of apps

Although they are frequently used interchangeably, websites and web applications are different. A website is most commonly described as a collection of interconnected, information-carrying pages that may be visited via a web browser. The user accesses a web application through a web browser or application software running on a web server. Web apps are also different from native apps. Native applications are downloaded and built expressly for the sort of device they are installed on and utilise the hardware specific to the device, such as the GPS or camera. Hybrid applications are occasionally used to describe programs that blend these two apps. Although hybrid apps are installed on the device similarly to native apps, they function similarly to web apps.

If you have a web app development project, Communere Ltd. makes sure you get the best experience.

How does a web app work?

Web applications are written in two different languages by web app developers. To function, they often combine server-side scripts and client-side scripts. The information is stored and retrieved by the server-side script, which needs programming languages such as Python or Java. Languages like JavaScript, CSS, and HTML5 are required for the client-side script. These programming languages use the browser to carry out the operation. The web server forwards the user's request to the web application server via the Internet when the user submits it through the application's user interface. The web app server completes the specified operation and generates the necessary data results. Then, these results are returned to the web server by the web app server. Lastly, the user receives the required information from the web server on his mobile device, tablet, or desktop.

Most common features of web applications

The most common features of web apps are: • Prioritising user interaction • Easier to maintain compared to desktop apps • Operating online and through web browsers • Highly responsive • Using push notifications to keep users updated on app-related activity and encourage frequent app usage • No need to download or install them

Web app developers create different types of web apps, including email, word processors, spreadsheets, shopping carts, and more. Let's look at some of the most known ones available.
