Web applications

  
A web application (Webapp) is a program that is stored on a server and delivered over the Internet or intranet via a browser interface.

A web service is a web application by definition, and many, though not all, websites contain Web applications.

A web application is thus a computer program that uses web browser and web technology to perform its task over a network.
  
Web applications can be designed for a wide range of applications and can be used by anyone, from an entire organization to a single person.

Commonly used web applications can e.g. include webmail, online calculators, e-commerce stores, word processors, spreadsheets, video and photo editing, file conversion, file scanning and more.

Popular applications include Google Apps and Microsoft 365.

Google Apps for Work has Gmail, Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides, online storage and more.

In general, there is not much that can not be made as a web application.
  
Web applications do not need to be downloaded as they are accessed through a network.

For a web app to work, it needs a web server, an application server, and a database. These can, of course, be one and the same server.

Web applications use a combination of server-side scripts (PHP, ASP, .net, Python, Java, Ruby and more) to handle the storage and retrieval of the information, and client-side scripts (JavaScript, CSS, and HTML5) to present information to users.

This allows users to interact with the business using online forms, content management systems, shopping carts and more.

In addition, the applications allow employees to create documents, share information, collaborate on projects and work on shared documents regardless of location or device.

Web applications have many different uses, and with these uses come many benefits.


Some common benefits of web apps include:
  • Allows multiple users to access the same version of an application.
  • Web applications do not need to be installed.
  • Web applications can be accessed through various platforms, such as a desktop, laptop or mobile.
  • Web applications run on multiple platforms regardless of OS or device as long as the browser is compatible. (Could be Windows, Linux or Mac)
  • Web applications reduce software piracy in subscription-based applications
  • Mobile App store approval not required in web applications
  • No need to remind users to update their applications
  • Web applications reduce costs, both for the company and the end user, as there is less support and maintenance as well as lower demands on the end user's computer
