If you have seen the annals of technology, you see that it has changed in the recent few years. There was a time, when technology changed every century. For example, the period before the industrial revolution. Then the innovations happened one by one and it changed every half of a century. The initial Fast phase started with the invention of usable computers in the last years of 1970s. It continued in the 1980s. The period co-incided with the widespread popularity of internet in the 1990s. And, the world became one global race. And with it, the technology became fast paced. Now, you can see a innovation every day. Coming, to the topic, will we discuss the best news apps for 2018?
The era of 2000 was the decade of computers. In the middle of 2005, technology centered around various mobiles. Yes, there was the creation of languages. Owning a website was a luxury. But it was after 2010, when the millennials entered the workforce, the era of mobiles began. And with it, the apps. In short, 2016 is best described as the “Year of Apps.”
Will we discuss the basics?
When you say “app” the best description you can think of will be in reference to the mobile. But in short, app means applications. A piece of software which can run either via any web browser or even if the internet is offline. It is not necessary that the apps should have connection to the internet. Usually, apps contain less information than a full-fledged website.
The most common are these three – web, mobile and desktop.
Desktops apps do contain more information and have all the features needed for a program. The app for the same will be a simple and easy-to-use version.
Is there a reason for the difference? Yes. For the desktop and web apps, you can use the mouse and keyboard. But for mobile apps, you need only the stylus or finger as the device will have a small screen.
Yes, Web apps may have the total features. Period. Yet, they need to make the use of internet connection as well the web browser program. They can perform the same tasks as desktop or mobile programs. But mobile apps tend to be lightweight.
Is there another app? Yes, the mixture of web app & Desktop app. Hybrid apps is the name. The special features – they have the desktop interface (offline, of course). The advantage – they have access to other devices and hardware. But they remain connected to the internet, other internet devices for quick updates.
Will we look at the examples?
There are apps which you can find in all the three forms. Desktop apps, web apps and mobile apps.
If you look at the Adobe Photoshop image editor, then it is a full software program worked on your desktop. In the mobile app, the Adobe Photoshop Sketch helps you to draw as well paint from portable devices. And you know very well about the web app called as Adobe Photoshop Express Editor.
The next best example, is the Microsoft word. You can use it in desktops, and also available on mobile apps and the web.
But not all apps have the three at the same time. You can get the desktop version, but not the mobile version and that of the app.
