What is a web application and how is it different from a website?
A web application or a web app is a web program devised and developed in the same way as a website, that is through coding. It is a computer program that is built using technologies such as HTML, CSS AND JS. A web application can be used to store databases and files. It is extremely useful for enterprises and institutions. One of the most common examples of a web application is Google Docs. Although “Google Docs” is a free and democratic web application that can be accessed by users across the web space, there are other institution or organisation specific web apps that can be access only by certain persons.
We apps are generally access through web browsers such as Google chrome. In order to understand the difference between a web app and a website, one must understand the fundamental points of distinction. The difference lies in engagement and interaction with the users. Web applications are usually centred around inputs from users. The users are able to create, enhance, post, update and remove data from web applications.
Whereas web applications are concerned with inputs from users, websites are more output- focused. The websites are created and designed with the focal point of providing outputs to the users. You can download web applications on your device and thus you can immediately bring them to use as and when required.
