Are you looking to There are three kinds of apps in existence: desktop apps, web apps, and mobile apps. Prior to smartphones, desktop apps were largely referred to as desktop programs. These are the longest-running tech products we’re all familiar with, including the Microsoft Office suite.
With agile and mobile tech products at the forefront of innovation (such as web and mobile apps), desktop apps are given less significance. However, the reality is that all of them are still important. Though we live in a mobile era, desktop usage is still high. 41% of the population in Malaysia uses desktop. 71% of Singapore-based users also use their desktop computers frequently. Because of this, businesses like yours have to consider building one type of app or going cross-platform.
Provides the Best User Experience
A desktop app is stable and can work on any laptop or desktop. They provide a rich, responsive, and dynamic user experience that newer technologies can’t match. Desktop apps also provide the best solutions for tasks that need long-form writing, computation, and image and video editing. Creating a customisable desktop app for big businesses translates to raking in more profit.
Accessibility and Reliability
Accessing desktop apps is easier than web or mobile apps, even with the absence of a good internet connection. Users can still use your app even when they’re not connected. The internet can crash and the data on the desktop app will remain intact. Accessibility and reliability are important if your company caters to emerging markets, where internet connection is unreliable.
Installation and Updates
Installing and updating desktop apps cost more in terms of time and budget.
Sychronising document changes over the Web isn’t possible with a desktop app, unless you build a “Save to Cloud” function inside it.
Installation and Updates
Web apps essentially offer the same services as desktop apps, but only cost a fraction of the time and cost installing and updating them. There are also open-source web apps that are free. Web apps are cost-efficient and appeal better to startups and SMEs. Profits will come from small bulk orders.
Access and Responsiveness
Responsiveness is not guaranteed, especially if there’s poor internet connection in the area. It’s also harder to navigate to a web app on the browser.
91% of Singaporeans and 88% of Malaysians are on smartphones, and all of them use at least one kind of app daily.
Reliability and stability
Mobile apps are more prone to having bugs since it requires more code. Android devices display more bugs than iOS devices.
