At Webex Studios, we often get mistaken for a web design company, which is entirely different from a Web Design & Development Agency (web application development).
Here’s a simplified description on the difference between a Website vs. Web App.
Websites are one-way informational feeds; they do not allow viewers to interact or communicate back to the site. Mobile websites are designed specifically for smaller screens, and responsive design websites automatically adjust to the size of the screen and type of browser in which they are being displayed.
Web applications are websites with functionality and interactive elements. Gmail, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc. are all web apps that are dynamic and built for user engagement.
Because web apps are extremely customizable and can perform a wide range of functionality, they are generally more difficult to build and require an experienced team of developers. A web application is computer software accessed through a web browser, often connected to a database to provide an interactive experience. In Web Apps, Data can be referenced, stored, and accessed through a customized interface to simplify the delivery of information to your customer.
Wikipedia is a good example of a web app, even though it looks like a website.
