Mobile applications are a part of the cloud, they provide the ability for users to utilize power, storage and access functions when necessary. Just the words ”when necessary” is exactly the difference between the cloud and the Internet, simplified, one could express the cloud with the following expression: ”you get what you pay for”, the same can not be said of the Internet. And the trend is clear – mobile services through mobile applications has never been more present in the market than right now – it’s the fastest growing way users interact with new services today.
There are many different techniques to clouding applications, such as by ensuring that the application being developed is built according to the HTML 5 standard or rewriting the applications developed with its original language. You can also combine using the existing code and provide a mobile application interface.
