How to Choose the Right School App
What's the difference between a NATIVE APP & MIRRORED WEBSITE ?
Native Apps have code written specifically for your mobile device. Notifications can be "pushed" directly to your users devices and can work without internet connectivity. They work much faster, are much more intuitive, and take full advantage of your device features. Native apps are common in the business sector because of their quality, speed, and versatility.
Native apps are highly used and boast the best user experience in the app industry.
Mirrored Websites are not true apps, but rather mobile websites that mirror a desktop website on a device. They run by a web browser on your device (that wheel you see turning) and come with limited phone and tablet navigation (lots of pinching & zooming) because they do not utilize any direct code for "smart" devices. Web apps lack the ability to send "push notifications". They require internet access and have significantly slower operation speeds because they depend on the quality of the cell signal or WIFI to which a user is connected. Web apps commonly come along as an "added feature" to a website or software service (i.e. website, LMS, grade book, scheduling software, etc.).
Web apps tend to be clunky and frustrating for today's users, leading to limited use of the "app".
