Mobile Web apps are an interesting and more convenient replacement for native apps. All the popular mobile devices, those being operated on android and those being operated on ios, come with their own gadget packed and highly effective web browsers. A few examples of the mobile web browsers are chrome, safari and opera.
A creative hand at CSS3 conversion and HTML can provide with an amazing browsing experience for the web browsers. These features, combined with speedy Java script load, can really add a smooth and comfortable experience for an individual browsing the web through these mobile apps.
A draw back that so far has not been dealt with is the comparative lower performance on the part of the mobile web apps as compared to the native apps when downloading the pertinent data. Whereas Native apps would only down the pertinent data.
One way of making things faster could be the use of browser cache. This way the data transfer would be speedier when downloaded from the web server and not from the device itself, conflicting with how the to the native apps work.
Web and Mobile App Development
Many website developers have taken an initiative to come up with the mobile version of their websites. This means that all of your favorite websites can now be viewed on your phone in a compact, sleek and more comfortable way. Mobile websites are different from websites that can be viewed on computer as they are developed primarily for the mobile user.
They are better tailored to fit the screen and provide better finger touch efficiency as the icons are enlarged and more space is provided for the user to work.Mobile websites and mobile web apps are similar in the context that both of them are designed to provide a comfortable user interface and user’s comfort is given primary importance.
The mobile technology, whether it is the phones or the ipads, brings about new challenges to be dealt with and aced. This technology is relatively different from the desktop technology that offers a greater storage, and more reliable internet connection. Also their smaller size and touch screen technology brings about new web design features to be considered and plotted.
One way of dealing with the many issues that web based mobile technology brings with it can be to cut down on the data transfer size. Make sure that the user has to transfer minimum data as web and mobile app would mostly work on Wi-Fi. Considering the medium of the transfer, it’s better to stick with the minimum transfer.
The smaller the file size, the faster will be the downloading and vice versa. The time taken to download a file is directly proportional to the size of the files being transferred. Therefore developers should make sure that they make the number of file transfers and the sizes of those files as small as possible in order to ensure faster transfer and an enriching and satisfying mobile browsing experience.
