What's a Web App?
Web Apps are built to solve a particular user problem, whether it's shopping, searching information in the Internet or communicating with friends. The key feature that distinguishes Web Apps from Websites is interactivity; Web Apps are all about interaction with the user, while Websites usually serve informational role.
In order to function, Web Apps usually rely on a variety of technologies and a powerful server infrastructure, hence developing a Web App usually takes more time and costs more than website development.
What is the Difference Between Website and Web App?
The line between Web Apps and Websites is blurred, and everyone defines the difference between these terms in his own way.
This is what we think: Website is a representation of your brand on the Internet. Corporate websites, promo websites - all of these are good examples. If a website is what you need, we offer a website development service. Website development is generally faster and cheaper than Web App development, but this depends on the scale of the project.
Web App is oriented towards solving user tasks, such as shopping (online stores), communicating with friends (social networks), searching information (search engines), ordering taxi, planning tasks and so on.
This doesn't mean that you have to use either one or the other. Generally speaking, every Web App is a Website. Also, a Website may host a Web App inside of it. But since Websites and Web Apps require different development approaches, we make a distinction between them.
