Learn the web and mobile app differences

In the application development process with Kuika, web and mobile applications have some differences.

In the process of developing Web and Mobile Applications in Kuika, it differs in terms of some features.

The web application type is basically responsive and has features that enable you to develop applications that run on a browser. Features such as calling a phone number or sharing it in different applications with the share action are unavailable in web-type applications.

On the other hand, in the mobile-compatible application type, it comes with features that can work on both Android and iOS devices. Actions such as calling or sharing the phone number we mentioned are among them.

The differences between the two application types are;

1- Configuration Settings: You can get only web applications in web applications and both web and mobile applications in mobile-compatible application type.

2- Element Differences: While all elements can be accessed in the Web application type, Elements such as Tooltip, Date&Time Range are not available in the Mobile application type.

3- Action Differences: Actions such as calling the mobile phone number (CallPhoneNumber) are not available in the web application type.

If we examine the reasons for the differences in web and mobile-compatible application types;

  • While page numberers are used in list screens in web applications, the structure in which new content is loaded with scroll is used in mobile applications.

  • When developing a mobile application, you do a single development for both Android and iOS. Elements and actions to meet both devices and operating systems are kept common.

1. Configuration Settings

Depending on the type of application you create, the configurations to be used when generating your application vary. While the basic settings are sufficient for the web, you should prepare the operating system-based (iOS/Android) configurations for the mobile.

There are default configuration settings that will allow you to preview the application you have created, regardless of web or mobile. In this way, you can preview the application from the first time you create it, and you can preview it packaged for a web or Android device.

In the web application type, you can configure only for the web. In the mobile compatible/supported application type, you can make separate configuration settings for both web and mobile (Android/iOS).

When you generate the application you have prepared with the configurations, an e-mail is automatically sent to your user account. From the link in this e-mail, you can preview the application via Appetize, download it to your device and test it (Android only), or install TestFlight.

2. Examine Element differences based on project type

95% of the elements in the platform can be used jointly in both web and mobile-compatible application types. This small difference in web application and mobile-compatible application types is due to the device, operating system, or UX requirements where the application will be used. Although there are the same elements in both application types, there are slight differences in the properties of several elements.
