Web Applications Explained

Advancements in technology and the popularity of the internet have brought with it a number of changes that we would have never predicted. From new and innovative means of communication to the introduction of applications that are customized for a specific purpose, there is a lot that has changed over the last few years.

Web applications are one of the most interesting innovations that have come forth in recent years, altering the way we use the internet and web browsers for good. However, with that said, the fact remains that web applications do not get half of the recognition that they truly deserve.

Interested in learning more about web applications and what makes them so unique? Read on to find out everything you need to know about web applications, how they work, the advantages and disadvantages that they offer, and how our team at Atimi can help you craft web applications like no other.

What are Web Applications?

As the name suggests, web applications are apps that use a web browser. Web applications generally involve a web server and an application server that work harmoniously to process the requests of the user or client. In some cases, a database, too, may be required for storing data and ensuring accuracy or efficiency.

What Makes Web Applications Different?

One of the most interesting facts regarding web applications is that they are generally created using simple languages including HTML and CSS, yet they offer immense utility and functionalities that are truly unique. Web applications have recently started gaining immense popularity owing to the fact that they can be used across a number of different platforms and work like a charm on a number of different operating systems unlike their distant cousin, native applications.

Another great advantage of web applications is that they are easily developed in very less amounts of time with complete functionality and integrated with a number of features. What’s more is that these applications do not need to be downloaded and installed, and can run using just a simple URL.

Even though web applications have a number of pros, they do come with more than their fair share of disadvantages as well. Since web applications are closely linked with the websites that they are based on, it is imperative for you to have a fully functional and responsive website to ensure that the web application works in the way that it should. Additionally, web applications are known to restrict access to certain hardware on the device that they are being run on. As you might have guessed, an internet connection, too, is absolutely necessary for web applications to run, which means that problems with internet connectivity will prevent you from using the application altogether.
