As much as the internet rules today’s world, there are certain times that you may not be able to get an access to it. But that does not curb your need to access your daily app on the system to run your business. In such cases, you may opt for a desktop app, a stand-alone app that runs without needing an internet connection. We develop these as per your preferences and specifications.
A desktop app can be designed to work on one computer or a network of computers, as in an office. It can also be designed for use on a single laptop. It all depends upon your needs.
A desktop application runs locally on a computer device, unlike a web application that runs over the internet. Some technologies that we use to create these desktop applications are as below:
HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) is used to give any webpage its structure i.e., it forms the skeleton for the developers to work on. A main feature is video and audio integration.
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is used to stylize the web pages and make them more presentable too. It is used to describe the display of HTML elements on screen.
Visual Basic .Net is an object-oriented programming language. i.e., it supports inheritance, abstraction, encapsulation, polymorphism etc., which means existing features can be re-used. This in turn means time is saved.
Windows Presentation Foundation helps in providing user interfaces in Windows-based applications. It is a GUI (Graphical User Interface) framework that includes labels, textboxes, etc., to make the navigation through the application easier.
Java is another object-oriented programming language. The main advantage of using Java is that it can run on multiple platforms. Java is also the best suited for use on the internet/world wide web (www).
