Normally, such applications are called up and displayed in the web browser of the mobile terminal. However, the apps are not limited to mobile websites only. Thus, in principle, all applications on the Web can be considered a “web app”. Through the so-called container presentation, the apps can be viewed and run independently of the platform.
The advantage of the web-based approach is less implementation effort. However, since the web applications refer to the functions of the browser, the scope of functions is also limited. Therefore, large-scale applications that address and process different sensors can not be implemented with such technologies.
