At present, with the advent of the most advanced information and telecommunication technologies, businesses can promote themselves through various platforms. And people are just starting to become conscious of the huge potential both mobile apps and mobile websites can bring to their businesses. Let us try to see their advantages; but first let us tackle in a very simple way the difference between mobile apps and mobile websites.


Many people are frenzied about mobile apps because they offer numerous functions. They can be used for playing games, searching for songs and lyrics, checking the weather, finding tips to improve health and many more. But do you actually know that mobile apps are also viable for business purposes?


Mobile apps offer specific services and features. They may be used for a defined goal. Let us take for example calendar and to do manager apps which are often used to organize commitments and daily tasks. Timers and trackers are used specifically for the purpose of record-keeping. There are also GPS services that can be maximized for searching locations and directions.


All in all, these specific programs may look and work in the way users want it. They can be customized so as to reflect the personality of individual users or to say something about the company that is making use of such technology. However, mobile apps are usually compatible with definite smartphone models, say Apple iPhones, Blackberry and Android phones. To ensure compatibility, you need to create an app which is suitable for each device. Apps need to be downloaded and installed before users can utilize them. But the catch here is that they won't appear on mobile search engines and users should often upgrade the apps to keep pace with app changes and developments.


On the other hand, businesses can take advantage of mobile websites. With this technology, a version of your companyâs site is constructed just for mobile Internet. Unlike the apps that need to address compatibility issues, one version would suffice for mobile web and it can run on all devices and models. Also, mobile websites can be easily located on search engines and there is no need to download and install them. You just have to browse the Internet using Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G, and broadband connection or through Internet-enabled phones supported by business and mobile VoIP providers like RingCentral, among many others.


But in real terms, the one that will best help your business depends on your current needs and demands as well as how much time and capital you can allocate for the creation of your very own mobile app or website. Most app developers conduct business needs assessment and analysis even before they embark on creating mobile apps and websites for companies, products and services. App developers also showcase their portfolio on mobile apps and websites created for previous clients.


Anyway, the decisive task of putting up platforms that will benefit your company is in your hands. Just be sure to think about all the considerations like the initial input and investment. But then again, what matters most are the output and products of your decisions. Just learn how to take advantage of the technologies available in the market. After all, technology is made and prepared for the consumption of mankind and you might as well take a great bite from it.
