Search Software Quality: Understanding Mobile, Web and Cloud Apps and System Architecture


Search Software Quality published another of my answers to reader questions:

Can you explain the differences between mobile apps, cloud apps and web apps?

You can see my full answer online where I talk about the importance of understanding how these apps often work together (sorry – registration required). For those looking for a quick preview, I try to move beyond the obvious “mobile apps run on mobile devices” answer and look into the complexity of many modern applications – how they combine aspects of mobile, web and cloud to produce the ultimate user experience. The end result is that system designers – and system testers – need to understand the overall application architecture if they want to have better insight into what parts of their apps are mobile, web-based or cloudy.
