We have reached a point where Mobiles have surpassed traditional computers in doing things that were unimaginable a few years back. All the web development companies as well as small and large scale businesses immediately made their websites responsive in order to amplify the experience of mobile users. But the problem with mobile websites was that it was not easy to search for a particular information due to poor UI/UX design interface and improper font styling. Also many a times there were pop up ads or alerts which made browsing the website very difficult for the visitor.
And because of all the above reasons, mobile applications were developed which were specially designed keeping in mind the need of a particular user rather than all the users. Also the web design and interface were such that user can easily navigate to all the areas of the website thus accessing their desired information. In addition to that visitors found it more secure to do banking transactions from mobile apps rather than mobile websites.
Below are the key reasons why mobile apps are better and much needed replacement for mobile websites.
Ability to Watch and Save Video Content Offline for Later Viewing
Many top video content streaming websites like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hotstar etc have their own mobile apps where people can see and download videos according to their preferred categories. Also they can have a cinematic experience in their mobile itself due to the Ultra HD feature provided by these sites.
Banking Transactions Made Fast and Secure
There are many hackers that can easily hack your browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla and many more and hence can get all your personal details. For example if you are using internet banking from your mobile browser than the hackers can get your user id and password which can be used to withdraw money from your account. In order to overcome this issue prominent banks like HDFC, Axis, ICICI have their own mobile apps which is highly secure and user friendly. Moreover these websites use three way authentication that makes hacking almost impossible. These apps provide many useful features like easy money transfer, safe bill payments to third parties and many more.
Faster Compared to Mobile Websites
Most of the mobiles apps store their data locally on mobile devices as compared to mobile websites which uses web servers to store the data. This makes mobile apps faster hence increasing user experience and saving precious time of the visitors. Also mobile apps can store user preferences and can display information to the users according to their interests next time they open the app.
Increase in Brand Authority
Studies have shown if a mobile user have installed an app then they will open the app more frequently compare to the mobile website. This is a good opportunity for companies to increase their brand presence as user engagement will increase once they have a good mobile app for their business.
Online/E-Commerce Shopping Made Easy
Popular E-commerce websites like Amazon, Alibaba, E-bay and others are getting their highest number of sales from mobile apps. E-Commerce Apps with good user interface and designing have made the online shopping from mobiles a huge success. Many features like fast loading, secure payments, customized display of products have almost doubled the conversion rates of these online businesses as compared to mobile websites.
