What are mobile apps?
Mobile apps are mini applications that operate on a mobile device like a mobile SmartPhone or tablet like an iPad. They can be web apps or native apps.
What is the difference between a web app and a native app?
Web apps are accessed via a browser and native apps are installed on your phone. The user downloads a native app from an online app store or marketplace.
Why does Mobile Giant use native apps?
Native apps provide the content owner with greater security. The native ‘mobile app’ also allows the user to quickly and seamlessly access the information with one tap of the app, without the need to use a mobile browser and surf the internet to find the information they need putting information at the users’ fingertips.
