Gone are the days when a mobile was considered to be a luxury. Like the refrigerator, the mobile has now become a necessity. As technology evolved the features of the mobile phone started improving.

There are some people who get confused between Mobile Web Development and Mobile Application Development. The accessibility of any web site on the internet through the mobile phone is because of Mobile Web Development. On the other hand the excellent features of the mobile to handle different aspects like video and voice recording, daily reminder, clock alarm pertain to Mobile Application Development. It is mainly because of the Mobile Application Development that the working of the mobile and the capacity of the mobile to handle various tasks has increased many times. The world of the Mobile Application Development started much earlier to Mobile Web Development. The Mobile Application Development may not need any internet connection but the Mobile Web Development is totally dependent on the internet.

Earlier the prime purpose served by the mobile phones was only telecommunication. People carrying the mobile phones could only talk with each other. Later, the mobile application of sending and receiving text messages which is also known as SMS was introduced. SMS is still one of the most popular mobile applications.

As technology evolved the mobile phone was designed to access the internet and then Mobile Web Development came into limelight. The mobile web development is now gaining so much popularity that there are many mobile phones in the market that allow the user to access the internet. Once the mobile phone user has accesses to the internet he/she can perform a number of tasks that are possible through the internet.

The difference between Mobile Web Development and Mobile Application Development can be made easy through study of the terminology used. In Mobile Web Development the word “Web” is of prominence, while in Mobile Application Development the word “Application” is of prominence. This should make the reader of this article clear about the difference between the two terminologies.

Some of the features of Mobile Web Development and Mobile Application Development that highlight the difference between them are as follows.

Characteristics of Mobile Application Development:

The platforms of the different mobile phones vary and it is because of this that the application may run on the same types and brands of mobile phones but it may not run in mobiles phones of different brand and mobile platform.

When developing the mobile application the application developer needs to consider the features and the prices of the mobile phones commonly used and available in the market.

The Mobile Application Developer needs to also consider the users of the mobile phone and their (mobile phone users) needs.

Characteristics of Mobile Web Development:

In case of Mobile Web Development the developer needs to consider the commonly used platforms in the mobile phones such as Android, iPhone, Windows mobile, Blackberry iPad and Symbian.

The mobile web applications can be related and about anything on the internet and it is because of this that developer needs to inform the prospective buyer of the mobile web application about its utility and industry that it caters to.

The mobile web application should be compatible with the commonly used browsers like Opera Mini and Mobile Safari.
