Posted by | August 4, 2016 | blog | One Comment

There are many mobile applications mushrooming in app stores, which testify the growing users of a mobile application. However, Web technologies are a fast growing domain which brings different nuances that amaze not just its users but also its developers. JavaScript is soon going to replace other popular non-JS frameworks. This is owing to the fact that JavaScript applications cater to every need to improve user experience, expedite development without compromising on the native app look and feel.

 Here are 7 reasons to reinforce the fact that Web applications built on HTML5 + JS are irreplaceable.

1. The WEB is a vast resource
Mobile developers face issues of memory management and minimalism and are forced to rely on web view for rendering data from different domains. Web Application makes it easier for developers to show more data that may please its end users and also cache the data offline for future visits.

2. Application Gamification
Gamification is a fast growing term in application building. In JS applications, it comes naturally, as it is strictly built on the guidelines to engage users and understand the patterns they follow and adapt to their needs adeptly. Ability to prompt suggestions, alerts – without distracting users also becomes an integral part of gamification in web applications.

3. Ease of Customization
User experience can be easily customized using HTML5 and JS. The HTML5 canvas helps improve user interaction, giving freedom to the user to decide what and how he wishes to see data. Access control is easily handled by the client himself. Application loads faster and smoother screen transitions make user-experience a delight. The data displayed is more in detail than can possibly be shown in a basic viewport.

4. Security and Performance
Although Web Applications are prone to all security invasions just like mobile applications, there are better measures available to curb and protect these attacks in web applications built using Javascript and HTML5. Data is protected by encryption techniques and data validations that conserve the integrity of the data presented in Web Application. App cache and local Storage available in HTML5 retain trivial data for faster application loads without exposing pertinent information to an attacker.

5. Choice for every need
Since the number of hybrid apps is on the high now, there are abundant choices based on the need of the application. The boundaries of different platforms fade in the case of hybrid applications. The changes and fixes are easier as web applications can be readily deployed and the application is up and running in no time. This also means we have frequent application updates; a user gets to enjoy new features without having to wait for updates from app stores.

6. User base
All popular applications like Flipkart, Facebook, Pinterest still have web applications, there are a lot of users who still find web applications either Desktops or online easier to work. Web applications have a huge user base, the simple reason being that more data is represented in a way that makes user easily able to compare, update or just use as info than in small screen device applications. Data is secure and furthermore, web applications are able to support more features.

7. Versatility
Frameworks like react.js for rendering code which is readable and maintainable but are also easily integrated with testing tools for maintaining code quality. Mean.js, Express.js, and Sails.js (node.js) provide freedom to code both server and client side scripting in single language i.e, JavaScript which again lessens development time and increases code maintainability. Electron.js for building desktop apps (MacOsX, Linux, Windows), ionic.js (Android, iOS)for platform independent mobile apps the scope is massive. It does not just stop at this, the end result is an application that supports high traffic and is a highly scalable application that grows with your business.

Web Applications have a better customer reach as they do not rely on platforms, Operating systems and easier to share your ideas with your audience. So if you are planning to build an application that focuses on achieving futuristic features, fast growing user base, amazing user experience and minimum development time, look no further your answer is HTML5 + JS!

    I have been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours as of
    late, but I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is lovely value enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did,
    the web might be much more helpful than ever before. http://yahoo.co.uk
