What is a Web Application (and How do They Work)?

You probably already know what a mobile application is. A web application is pretty similar except it is not on your phone but on the internet.

You may ask the following question:

What is the difference between a website and a web application?

Well, a website is content-based in which it will show only text and images with little interaction needed. On the other hand, a web application is a tool with more functionality and interaction needed. Also, web applications can be any sort of tool or even a video game.

If you are still not clear on the difference, here is a comparison between websites and web applications:

Websites
  • Less functionality
  • Internet-based
  • Usually client side
  • Content-based (plenty of text and images)
  • May be mobile-friendly
Web Applications
  • More functionality
  • Internet-based
  • Usually server side
  • Minimal text
  • Very mobile-friendly
  • Software/program

Terms to Know

Here are some terms you should know before we start getting into the nitty-gritty of things:

  • Server-side – The backend of the web application or website that runs on a server
  • Client-side – The front of the web application or website which carries a lot of the design and visual aspects
  • Mobile-friendly – A website or web application that is mobile-friendly means that can run smoothly on a mobile device such as a phone or tablet without any issues

2 Examples of Web Applications that I Offer

Here are a few of my web applications:

  1. Gamepanel – This web application is your gaming hub for those that need to buy some gaming gear, extra software, play some mini-games, etc.
  2.  Dsearch – A simple search engine that will provide simple website and image results

The Pros and Cons of Web Applications

Pros
  • No download required
  • Accessible on any web browser
  • Takes up zero RAM
  • Mobile friendly
Cons
  • May be more prone to hacks (Depends on application)
  • Requires WiFi

Some of the key takeaways that I want you to walk away with include that web applications are different from websites since web apps are tools and also that web applications are internet-based and have many useful qualities as there are many web applications out there.
