Web apps and how they're different from websites

A Web application (Web app) is an application program that is stored on a remote server and delivered over the Internet through a browser interface.

"I always ask myself, 'Does it do something?' Even if it only does something small and specific, it's still a web app. Google's search engine is a web app, yet its root concept is hardly different from a phone directory that enables you to search names or numbers."

WEB APPLICATIONS CAN BE AS COMPLEX AS SPREADSHEETS, DOCUMENT EDITORS OR AS SIMPLE AS TO-DO LIST MANAGER. WHATEVER IT IS, IT SHOULD DO SOMETHING!


Web applications are redefining what it means to be 'on the web'; the web is becoming an equal mix of web sites and web applications. Here are three main factors that distinguish web apps from web sites:




1. A web application provides a great user experience, making it easy for users to complete their tasks and takes advantage of the device's native capabilities.






2. A web application provides rich visual experiences that will delight the eye without distracting the mind; it puts a premium on aesthetics and uses similar design paradigms as native applications without sacrificing usability.






3. A web application has a tight focus encouraging people to interact, engage, and accomplish something, rather than passively view content. The application is self-contained, allowing the user to complete their tasks without navigating to other sites or apps.
