What is a web app and why do companies build them?

In general terms, a web app is an application that uses a web browser as the client. In this context, the client label relates to the program used to run the app which is a web browser.

Web apps are usually built and developed by web app programmers to fit a company’s individual needs. Typically, the initial development of a web app is triggered by a business deciding they would like one to use internally. Or for their customers, to satisfy a demand they have noticed.

In terms of mobile web apps, these are apps that a business’ customers can download onto their mobile devices. The app performs certain functions related to their product or service, such as purchasing items or making a booking.
