At first glance, a mobile application seems to be a very simple thing, but why is the cost of developing mobile applications often much higher than developing a website? How can I reduce the cost of developing an application? Let's break it down.
Mobile application development is a set of processes and procedures related to writing software for small wireless computing devices. As with web application development, mobile application development has its roots in more traditional software development. However, one of the important differences is that mobile applications are often written specifically to use the unique functions offered by a particular mobile device. For example, a gaming application may be written to use the accelerometer of the iPhone, or a mobile health application may be written to use the temperature sensor of the smartwatch.
In the early years of working with mobile applications, the only way to ensure optimal application performance on any device was to create an application for a specific device. This meant that the new code had to be written specifically for the processor of each specific device. Today, most mobile application development efforts are focused on building applications that are device independent.
Native mobile apps versus progressive web apps
In previous years, if the application was supposed to be cross-platform and work in several operating systems, there was little code, if any, that could be reused from the original development project. In fact, each device needed its own mobile application development project with its own code base.
PWAs are designed to take advantage of the intrinsic features of mobile devices, and the end user is not required to visit the app store, make purchases and download software on site. Instead, you can find a PWA with a search engine request and get immediate access through a browser, thereby eliminating the need for e-commerce vendors to develop their own applications for multiple mobile operating systems. Like YouTube videos, PWA content is loaded gradually, which provides the end user with a better user experience than a traditional website that uses responsive design. Progressive web applications may also be referred to as instant mobile applications.
