Why choose an application deployment on desktops

While many would argue over the evident advantages a web app enjoys over a desktop application, here are five stark and candid reasons why deploying desktop applications is actually favorable to your business.

  1. 1. You want your app to be the cynosure of all eyes
    Web applications are hosted on browsers, where users tend to multitask and do a lot in one go. Multiple tabs, browser crashes, and unlimited clutter steal the thunder of your application. This is where a desktop app comes up trumps by being accessible outside of the browser.

  3. 2. Efficient utilization of system resources
    Your desktop app draws its juice from system resource and this leaves it with unmatched potential. Graphically rich desktop applications, or ones that multitask can efficiently leverage the hardware acceleration available on a desktop through intelligent programming. With a web application, it uses the browser-based memory manager which when compared to a computer system is very inefficient.

  5. 3. Building a ‘widget’ application
    With the increasing size of widgets, running them via browsers is more of a liability. On a desktop, they can be moved around and take up very little space. Browsers can be restrictive.

  7. 4. Seamless application integration with the desktop
    If you need your users to be able to drag-n-drop files to your app from your system, save data locally, and tinker with the app using the control panel; a desktop-based app is your best bet.

  9. 5. Visibility control over your app
    Web-based applications allow you to work within their browser-based interface leading to unnecessary toolbars, browser add-ons marring the look and feel of your app, and also modifying usability. All this can be avoided with desktop applications that offer complete interface and brand control, allowing users to see only what you want them to.
