WHAT ARE WEB APPLICATIONS?
A web application is any kind of software application that runs on a web server and shown in a browser, unlike mobile applications that live on your phone or computer-based software that runs locally on the operating system of your device.
Online forms, shopping carts, Facebook, email programs, Google apps are all examples of web apps.
Web applications typically have rapid development cycles, take up very little computing space on the end user’s devices, can be accessed through various platforms (ie. desktop, mobile, laptop), and don’t need to be installed making them incredibly versatile.
