Let’s start at the beginning. Web App vs. App.
- A Web App is an optimized website with interactive content accessed through a browser.
- A Native App is an App that was developed for a specific operating system.
Currently, when you decide to go the Native App path, you will need to pay for two Apps. One compatible with iOS (iPhone), and the other Android, and a diversity of devices on the market using this operating system. Usually, the user will have to access the App store and search for this App to download.
The best of both worlds.
Web Apps are positioned as the best of both worlds. They owe their existence to Google, which has been driving this more democratic way to provide information and universal services to all equipment. The concept of a Web App is to join the advantages of each of the options and ensure the full autonomy and independence of App Stores. There are already many sectors that are following this trend, and tourism is no exception. Tours and related activities, hotels and transport are at the forefront of the industry with regards to the adoption and integration of this technology.
Offline mode. Full compatibility.
The ability to work offline, or without using mobile data, is one of the great advantages of Web Apps. When you first visit the product or service, a data packet is downloaded to your smartphone and stored in the device’s cache. After this initial data transfer, the information will be available for use immediately, even in a place where there is no GSM network or available data. Web Apps suit the tourism industry perfectly, and specifically in the area of visitor interpretation solutions using an audio guide service for visitors' smartphones. You can have your Audio Guide service hosted on your own server or toGuide’s secure server. We offer tour solutions with up to 32 languages, Sign Language, maps to help visitors in unfamiliar territory and even automatic audio activation using beacons.
