WTF is a Web App?

If you’re wondering what the heck web apps or web applications are then you came to the right place.

Essentially, a web app is a website that aids you in carrying out various tasks. Whether it’s managing your finances, writing your to do list or setting and tracking your goals, there are web apps to help you with pretty much anything you can think of. Web apps are nearly exactly the same as  what you’ll find on any smartphone, except that they run directly in a browser.

So how do web apps work? Web apps can be found anywhere you have access to the internet.  The good thing about this is that you can use web apps from pretty much any operating system, windows, mac, linux, chrome os or mobile. Further, there is no problem transferring your information between devices because it is all synced automatically online.

Unlike desktop or smart-phone apps, there is no more need to install applications or continuously download upgrades and they typically require no additional storage on your hard disk. Any updates done are performed through a server so there is virtually no disturbance on the part of the user.

No more clunking around with pressing the wrong buttons on your smart-phone because your finger slipped. Web apps are made for use with bigger, more practical screens and real keyboards. With the advent of HTML5, programmers can create richly interactive environments natively within browsers. Includde in the list of new features are native audio, video and animations, as well as improved error handling.

Gone are the days where the web is understood as just screen-full of text and graphics. Web apps now allow us to interact and collaborate with each other, create content and enrich our experience with the internet.
