Apps for phones and computers are just as key to our lives today as the internet itself.

There are millions of unique and interesting apps available online that can help you fulfill a number of different needs. But what if you don’t want to download the apps directly on your device? Perhaps there’s not enough space to spare. Maybe your device doesn’t have the specific requirements to run the app. If that’s the case, you might be happy to know that it is possible to run your favorite apps without installing them.

By utilizing certain services, you can run mobile or desktop applications in your web browser itself. However, your browser needs to be able to support these services.
