Web Applications Development

If you want to launch a web app for your customers or staff, you have found just the right company to help you. At Softacom, we have rich experience in web applications development and will be happy to use our skills for building an app for you.

But before you decide on whether or not you need such a solution, you should clearly understand what web applications represent themselves.

A web app is a computer program that can be run in a web browser and accessed via the internet. Internet connection is the main precondition that allows you to use such an app. It sounds like web apps are very similar to simple websites, doesn’t it? But there are some significant differences.

Web app vs. website

To access them both a user needs to have an internet-connected device with a web browser.

So, from a technical perspective, a web app can be really viewed as a site.

However, some characteristics make them different:

  • Purposes. A website is usually a representation of static content and its main function is to provide users with some information. A web app is built to ensure interaction with users and it has a wider functionality. For example, an app can represent itself a corporate management software or even a program that is built to control some equipment.
  • Type. A site is a complete product but an app is a part of a website despite the fact that it’s a more complex product if compared with a site.
  • Form of interaction. While a web application requires user authentication, it is not obligatory if we speak about websites.

As you see, a web app is a functional software. But a website is quite often just a group of web pages with some text and visual content.

How is the web development process organized?

Though the web applications development requires not so much time as the development of many other types of software, it is still a rather serious process that unites a number of stages. And all of them are equally important as only their combination can ensure the creation of a high-quality product.

Step 1. Requirements analysis, cost estimation, planning;

Step 2. Design layout, interface design, wireframing;

Step 3. Development;

Step 4. Testing and bug fixing;

Step 5. Deployment and post-production phase which may include further bug fixing and introduction of updates.

It is important to mention that one of the peculiarities of web applications is their scalability and easy customization which means that developers can improve app productivity and add new functionality after it is already launched.

The list of other advantages of web apps also includes their compatibility with computers and smartphones, simple usage and maintenance as well as comparatively low costs.
