Mobile Web Apps are very similar to Mobile Websites in that they are both web-based and hosted on a server that is accessible from the Internet, making them different from a Native Mobile App that is downloaded to your mobile device. Mobile Websites are a responsive version of your website that responds to the screen size detected giving your visitors the information on your website in a format that is easy to read and navigate from a mobile device. Mobile Web Apps often have more functionality and specific actions.
Mobile Web Apps have many benefits over Native Mobile Apps. The biggest benefits are:
- They are updated in REAL-TIME, meaning you don't have to download updates. Everytime you access the app from your phone you are getting the latest updated version of the App with up-to-date information.
- They don't take up space on your mobile device or slow it down by taking up resources.
- They can be accessed from a PC or Mobile Devices
- You don't lose them should something happen to your mobile device.
