    Hi Gangsterpart,

    Any online service or application that you access from a web browser is considered a web app, even a basic website is considered a web app,

    If the application is installed and runs on your local device then is is considered a native app.

    Web apps all use HTML and usually some JavaScript for the client side and can use many different languages on the server-side coding. Common server-side languages are ASP.NET, PHP, C#, Perl, PHP, Python, JavaScript, Java, and so on...

    Hope that clears it up for you.

    Don Burk

    In computing, a web application or web app is a client–server software application in which the client (or user interface) runs in a web browser.

    A web browser is the first tier (presentation), an engine using some dynamic Web content technology (such as ASP, CGI, ColdFusion, Dart, JSP/Java, Node.js, PHP, Python or Ruby on Rails) is the middle tier (application logic), and a database is the third tier (storage).

    Unless it is not a static HTML - it is webapp. Currently almost any site can be considered as webapp.

    A Web application (Web app) is an application program that is stored on a remote server and delivered over the Internet through a browser interface. Web services are Web apps by definition and many, although not all, websites contain Web apps. http://technotronicsllp.com/

    A mobile website is just like any other – it uses HTML pages that can be accessed with any browser. However, while a usual website is built for viewing on a desktop, first of all, a mobile site is specially designed to appear on smaller screens like mobile phones and tablets.

    A responsive site has a special design based on CSS media queries. It allows website’s content to fit into any type of screen both 17’ laptop or 3’ phone. Those queries nonetheless have few imperfections: not only they require more developer’s work and attention but also such website most probably would download slower.

    By the way, you shouldn’t muddle up responsive and adaptive websites. The last one also works well on smaller screens but they are not versatile. Actually, adaptive websites work with certain screen parameters. It is hard to predict all the possible combinations so a responsive website can be a better decision.

    One more popular question: why do you need that responsive website at all? Well, did you know that quantity of mobile phone users is going to increase worldwide from 4.01 in 2013 to 5.07 billion in 2019? (see picture below). In 2016 almost 63% of the Earth’ population already owned a mobile phone. During next years this amount will grow in particular thanks to China and India.

    A web-based application is any program that is accessed over a network connection using HTTP, rather than existing within a device's memory.

    How can I implement google hangouts group on my page made in WordPress?

    I am want a group conversation chat by voice and I know this can work in an application made maybe in node.js, react.js

    example: free4talk.com

    but I begin to doubt if it is possible with wordpress.

    And I also do not understand how the google hangouts API works if it was closed for developers.

    web app is a client–server software application in which the client runs in a web browser.
    Web applications use a combination of server-side scripts to handle the storage and retrieval of the information, and client-side scripts to present information to users. This allows users to interact with the company using on line forms, content management systems, shopping carts and more. In addition, the applications allow employees to create documents, share information, collaborate on projects, and work on common documents regardless of location or device.

    Anything that runs in your internet browser can be called a web app.
    Web apps can be built using many different languages.

    Front end work (the way it looks) is done in html, css and javascript.

    Backend work (calculations, dynamic content, database interactions) are generally done with php, ruby, python, javascript, java or c#.

    A Web app is an application program that is stored on a remote server and delivered over the Internet through a browser interface.

    web application or web app is a client–server software application in which the client runs in a web browser. Common web applications include web-mail, online retail sales, online auctions, wikis, instant messaging services and many other functions.

    Examples of browser applications are simple office software (word processors, online spreadsheets, and presentation tools), but can also include more advanced applications such as project management, computer-aided design, video editing and point-of-sale.

    Nice question- in other words an application had its own pre-complied client program which serve as its user interface and had to be separately installed each user's personal computer.an upgrade to the server side of the application would typically also require an upgrade to the client-side code installed on each user workstation........

    In earlier computing models like client server,the processing load for the application was shared between code on the server and code installed on each client locally .....

    All the websites you access on http or htps based servers are known as web apps. For example Facebook, Gmail, etc.
    To built these web apps you can learn any server side languages like PHP.
    Note: Facebook is based on PHP language.
