Software & Application Development

Web Application

Web apps are sometimes contrasted with native apps, which are applications that are developed specifically for a particular platform or device and installed on that device. However, the two are not mutually exclusive because many applications contain elements of both native and Web apps. Programs that combine the two approaches are sometimes referred to as hybrid applications.

Android Applications

n Android app is a software application running on the Android platform. Because the Android platform is built for mobile devices, a typical Android app is designed for a smartphone or a tablet PC running on the Android OS.

Windows Application

A program that is written to run under the Microsoft Windows operating system, also called a "Windows app." All 32-bit Windows applications run in the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows. Any 64-bit applications (there are few by comparison) require 64-bit Windows, which is the standard on most modern desktop and laptop PCs.
