5 Differences to Help You Choose Between an App or A Website - Image 1

Does Mars have water? Are we alone? Will America be great again? And which is better, a website or an app? These questions are making us curious with every passing day.


Well, this article might solve one of them. Yes, you guessed it right, the last one. Both web designers and mobile app developers are often found struggling with this question. Not only it baffles these two professionals but it also confuses businessmen in Canada.


We will here mention 5 best difference between a mobile application and a website. You choose which one you would like to go with.


One major difference before we head any further is that they are accessed via different devices, a smartphone, and a computer.


1. Integration:

Phones might not have big screens or faster processors, but they surely can make calls and send text anyway. Mobile apps developers can integrate these useful opportunities to give users an added functionality. This will eventually make your mobile application a success.


2. Push Notifications:

Desktop push notification differs from the mobile app. Since a smartphone is switched on 24/7 (almost always) notifications are more efficient and timely. Customizing push notifications based on geographic locations can help you build and cater an audience within a demographic boundary. Apps which are used to order food at ease are a prime example of it.


3. Screen Size:

Desktops and mobile apps differ greatly when it comes to screen size. The Smaller screen of a smartphone means less pixel-per-inch and vice versa. Location of your touch buttons can make a great difference with your app altogether.


4. Processor Speed:

A smartphone is comparatively slower than a computer, thus, apps are designed with sheer clarity and simplicity. As a decision maker for your company, you should never assume that what works for your website will work for your app as well. Additionally, mobile apps which consume a lot of mobile data receive a thumb down from your users.


5. Contextual Differences:

People often surf website while they are on PC or using desktops. Mobile apps, however, are not restricted as such. A user might operate his phone while he is on the go or is lying on his comfy bed. As a businessman, you should guide your app designer to add an inbuilt dictionary and provide

power saving options for better user experience.


Lastly, websites and apps cater different niche of the market. Choosing one over the other might deprive you of the bounties of the one you leave. With over 3.2 billion internet users globally, you just cannot deny the importance of a website. Similarly, as we observe mobile is taking on desktops, you hardly can choose to drop off your custom-built a mobile application.

    I think it all depends on the type of customer you are serving, at what frequency your customer is likely to use your solution/service, how simple and easy you want to make that transaction and how intuitive it can be could be some of the major deciding factors before deciding to go with an app. When it comes to website, the answers to factors mentioned could help you to decide whether to provide all the services on the web or not.
