Business apps are a decisive factor in the age of digitization. Anyone who has not started working with modern apps in their company by now probably has, even more, to catch up to. Since it matters how you introduce a business app, today, we’re looking at web app versus native app.
When talking about apps, different applications of terminology quickly arise. Web app, native app, and many more. Essentially, it matters for what use case you want to use an app for and what complexity will be involved.
For simple use cases with simple displays and controls, web apps can be suitable. In some cases, the user bypasses requires the installation of an app on the mobile device and uses a browser to operate the application.
If the requirements for stability, speed, and security are essential factors for the use of a business app, there is no alternative to a “real” app. A native app uses access to devise properties directly and without detours via a browser. For example, the security features and the device-specific options (barcode scanner, RFID reader, NFC, camera, GPS, and many more) can interact with the native app without restriction or detours. This has a significant impact on the security, speed, and stability of the application. It is also important to consider whether data is stored online or offline. If you want to enable intensive offline usage as well, web apps are usually too limited to enable secure and extensive use. Here, too, it pays to rely on a native technology that can, for example, directly access databases on the device or store them in an integrated manner without having to rely on third-party features such as browsers.
Often, systems are already provided with simple web apps, but these quickly reach their limits. With configurable business apps based on flexmobility platform, you can eliminate all the weaknesses of these apps by creating the functions and possibly many more, in business apps configurable via the platform. We will be happy to explain to you how this works and how easy it is!
