Mobile Apps

A mobile app is a software application designed to run on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers. Do not confuse a mobile app with a website. Although both are used on the same media (smartphones and tablets), mobile applications (apps) and mobile websites (also called Web Apps) are very different. A mobile app is a program that is downloaded and installed onto a user’s mobile device, whereas a mobile website is simply a website adapted to tablet and smartphone formats.

A mobile application must be downloaded either from an online store such as the App Store or Google Pplay. The application is then saved on the smartphone or the tablet, and in most cases it does not require an internet connection in order to work.

A mobile app, remains on the user’s smartphone, and is therefore ideal for frequent and repeated use. A mobile website however, is designed for mobile communication with the purpose of informing or for specific events and promotion.
