What is a mobile application?

A software application created specifically to run on mobile devices like smartphones and tablets is referred to as a mobile application or simply an app. Mobile apps can be downloaded and installed on a mobile device from an app shop, such as the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.

Programming languages and frameworks used to create mobile apps include Swift or Objective-C for iOS and Java for Android. They can be written for various reasons, including gaming, social networking, productivity, entertainment, and more. The numerous functionalities of mobile devices, such as the camera, GPS, and sensors, can also be utilized by mobile apps.

Mobile apps can be divided into two main categories:

  • Native apps are developed specifically for one particular mobile operating system, such as iOS or Android. They are written using the programming languages and frameworks supported by the operating system. They are downloaded and installed directly on the device and can take full advantage of its features and capabilities.
  • Hybrid apps are mobile apps built using web technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, then wrapped into a native app. They can run on multiple platforms. However, they may not be as fast and responsive as native apps

Once the mobile apps are developed, they can be submitted to the app stores for review and distribution. The app store review process is in place to ensure that the apps are safe and of high quality before they are made available to users.
