What are web applications? You're familiar with the term "app" on your smartphone or tablet computer. Web applications are the same type of thing, except built using web-specific technologies and delivered over the internet. Users interact with web applications using a common web browser.
Web applications and ordinary websites are similiar, but different. Web applications are specialized websites that allow you to do things, such as manage information and create content. Non-application websites are more for information consumption. You typically visit a website to read about a company, a new article or a blog post. Once you start interacting with that website and affecting what is displayed on the pages, it becomes closer to being a web application.
