Mobile usage is a ubiquitous part of consumers’ daily lives. Smartphone and tablet use continues to rise steadily, making these devices heavily relied upon for everyday tasks such as online banking and map navigation. For businesses, smartphones and tablets have changed the way organizations operate – with more businesses embracing digital change by equipping their workforce with hand-held devices to help them conduct business remotely or on the go. 

MORE TIME SPENT IN MOBILE APPS

With mobile device adoption on the rise, the need for creating mobile apps has also experienced growth. To date, there are over 5 million apps available (and counting) that people rely on every day. According to Yahoo’s Flurry Analytics, 90 percent of a consumer’s mobile time is spent in apps. This staggering statistic is the driving force behind organizations’ development of mobile apps of their websites and web applications.

NATIVE MOBILE APP VS. WEB APP

Web applications, accessed through web browsers, provide robust features and functionality that help organizations streamline their business processes. The reality is that users are dependent on desktop computers or laptops to get the full experience from web applications. But what happens the moment users need to step out of the office? How can they efficiently complete a task or even close a deal without being chained to a desktop computer or laptop?  

Developing a ‘lighter’ version of a web app as a mobile app is critical to delivering important operational features for users on the go. The idea is not to cram all of the features a web app has into a mobile app, but rather to include the required features to help users complete tasks remotely.  

Organizations can reap these valuable benefits by building a native mobile app of their web application:

  • Mobile apps can be used offline, making them accessible anytime
  • Generally, mobile app performance is faster because information is stored locally and only synchronizes with the server after an app session
  • Mobile apps accept device-specific hand gestures; a native mobile app responds the way its user expects
