A website can be a static page that only gives out information and may or may not have an input dependability. A web app on the other hand is a dynamic web application that responds to user input and allows users to perform certain tasks over the internet, so in short, any website that has client-side component that allows users to perform a task can be called a web app. Web apps are designed to perform specific tasks that help user solve a problem. Websites can exist merely to provide information.
Web app development is platform agnostic so businesses don’t need to develop a separate app for iOS and android.
As part of the development method, mobile user interface (UI) design is also vital in the designing of mobile apps. Mobile UI considers constraints, contexts, screen, input, and mobility as outlines for design. The user is often the focus of interaction with their device, and the interface entails components of both hardware and software. User input allows for the users to control a system, and device’s output allows the system to specify the effects of the users’ manipulation.
Front-end development tools
Front-end development tools are focused on the user interface and user experience (UI-UX) and provide the following abilities:
- UI design tools
- SDKs to access device features
- Cross-platform accommodations/support
Back-end tools pick up where the front-end tools leave off, and provide a set of reusable services that are centrally accomplished and controlled and provide the following abilities:
- Integration with back-end systems
- User authentication and authorization
- Data services
