At present, technology is a sector that is booming and it is increasingly something that is more present in companies regardless of their field. Presence, positioning, and brand image are now determined with the use of technology, more and more companies are developing applications in order to achieve differentiation from their competition.
It is for this reason that Hyperlink InfoSystem uses different technologies such as web and multiplatform applications when providing I.T solutions for businesses.
Web Application Development
Web Application Development focuses on the design, development, and implementation environments and maintenance of websites. In this way, the frontend is created, that is, the visible part of the web and also the backend, that is, the entire development set that ensures that the web environment works and that it does so correctly.
A web application is a version of a web page that has been optimized to be used from a mobile phone. Thanks to this, through the same programming code it adapts to any device with any operating system. It is important to note that it is not necessary to download it since the app is accessed through a browser making them accessible from any browser.
Cross-platform Application Development
Multiplatform Application Development refers to the development of applications for mobile devices. These can be implemented on various devices and platforms, both on mobile phones and in browsers.
Cross-platform applications only need a single development for any device, that is, the same HTML5 code will be used for any operating system, which favors time savings and economic costs.
Developing a multiplatform application offers the same possibility of developing applications with the same quality and features as web applications.
Difference Between Web And Cross-platform Application Development
The main difference between the development of web and multiplatform application is that the former is executed on the internet, and therefore, it is not necessary to install them. The data with which they work is processed and stored on the web. On the other hand, installation is required for cross-platform application
As a consequence of this, web applications are closely related to storing data in the cloud since all information is permanently stored on web servers. This, in cross-platform applications, does not happen.
Regarding the objective and design of the application, it is important to note that if the purpose is to find a quick and easy solution, a web application is a good solution since it offers a direct link to the web. Even so, if you need a more complex design or needs, it is advisable to make a multiplatform application.
We can also find different types of applications for each of the developments. As web applications, we find the static, dynamic web, email or content manager among others. A typical example of multiplatform apps are video games adapted to computers but also to mobile devices.
Web applications allow more complex developments, but also, unlike cross-platform applications, they are more expensive.
Join The Mobile World
With the democratization of data, the explosion of the smartphone market, and the adaptation of our consumption habits to the digital age are now on the agenda.
Developing a mobile and tablet application allows you to meet the expectations of your customers by making yourself available, anywhere and at any time.
Some Advantages of Mobile App Development
Better User Experience (UX)
With more than 5 billion smartphone users worldwide and a penetration rate of 67%, your customers are connecting daily and for longer periods from their mobile devices. You should take advantage of mobile app development to offer your users a better user experience to the optimizations offered by mobile applications in terms of ergonomics and loading times.
A New Communication Channel
While it is true that responsive websites could be described as the best alternative to mobile applications, the latter offer irreproachable ergonomics, and ease of use. Indeed, the applications are adapted to each mobile operating system (iOS and Android), which facilitates access to information and thus makes this channel essential to any digital strategy.
Improve Customer Loyalty
The significant advantage of mobile applications lies in the possibility of sending notifications. Push notifications boost the attractiveness of the brand since they make it easier to inform, interact and communicate about their latest offers, but also to build customer loyalty in a “user-friendly” environment.
Integrate a Multitude Of Features
Mobile applications offer new functions that can serve your digital strategy. Indeed, a mobile application can use GPS, push notification, camera, and so on.
