Web Applications, a Revolution in Web Technology

Published

on

Web Applications

A web application is a program contained in a remote server and displayed on the internet via a browser screen. Most web apps are contained on websites. Any application that aids you perform a given function on a website qualifies to be a web app.

Web apps are created for multiple uses. Any party ranging from individuals to companies, can access and use them. The most renowned and commonly utilized web applications comprise online calculators, webmail, and ecommerce shops. Except for some web apps that are restricted to certain browsers, the limitation to the web app’s use is minimal, as they can be used in different applications.

Smart TVs are internet-enabled and can be used to access web applications. However, given that web apps are vulnerable to security risks, there is a need to install VPNs in smart TVs such as Samsung to mask your data and personal information from internet prying eyes. A VPN allows Samsung TV to remain safe and secure from cyber hackers. That is especially so if you are using public Wi-Fi. Public Wi-Fi is not safe as hackers like to snoop through them to attack when they spot a vulnerability. Always install a VPN in your smart Samsung TVs to help encrypt your personal data and be safe from hackers.

How Web Apps Work

Web apps can be accessed through a network, implying they require no downloading. You can access web applications by visiting browsers such as Google Chrome, Mozilla, and Explorer. The functionality of web apps is dependent on the availability of web servers, application servers, and databases.

All three have varying functions. A web server is in charge of managing clients’ requests, whereas the application server finalizes the client request. A database is a storage site for any required data.

Ways Web App Development is Transforming

The process of web development has undergone a serious transformation in the recent past. Evolution plays a critical role in the business world, where they influence a company’s competitiveness. The standards of development are changing, with fresh tools and libraries emerging day in and day out.

With the increasing reliance on the web by businesses, web app development, therefore, plays a crucial role in most businesses’ sustainability. Knowing that web development is evolving, there is a need to determine how the evolution is taking place and how it is impacting businesses.

1.             Enhanced attention to security

Recent research revealed that 96% of web apps have a grave incidence of susceptibility. That means a greater risk to businesses from hackers. Therefore, it means that henceforth, more emphasis on application security is applied, and web developers equip themselves with proper security standards and make them a priority. According to Delphix, data security aims to prevent the exploitation of stolen data garnered from data breaches and cyber attacks.

2.             Increased hardware diversity

A boost in responsive design is responsible for an increase in hardware diversity. The reason for enhancing hardware diversity is the varying devices businesses or users use to access and use web apps. It means that your web apps must now adjust to the varying screen sizes plus user interfaces. Hence, developers must now be keen to ensure that they adapt their development to the evolving app development.

3.             Enhanced focus on user experience

A change in user expectations has severe impacts on a developer as user experience becomes critical. Consumers have gotten used to the simple and intuitive applications present in mobile phones. Developers must therefore develop web apps that are intuitive and straightforward to encourage fast consumer adoption.

4.             More importance on tools

Web app creation is getting complicated day by day, forcing developers to seek new skills and comprehend architecture, databases, security, and frontend appearance. Hence, the evolution has registered a great emphasis on tools, with an emergence of new libraries, tools, and frameworks to fill out developers’ skills gaps and increase business productivity.

5.             Real-time applications

It’s a new trend in app development where the web apps converse with the server and update a web app without having to refresh the page. Developers must therefore work towards developing real-time apps to expose some vital potential.

6.             Enhanced demand for APIs

This evolution implies that developers must find a way for their web apps to communicate and assimilate with other apps. That has witnessed a speedy rise in the utilization of application programming interface (API).

Benefits of Web Applications

Web applications offer a variety of uses. From those uses, we can understand the benefits that web applications have. Some of the benefits are as follows.

1.    Allowing numerous consumers access to a similar type of an application

Web applications are available for access by anyone on websites. All you need to do is carry out a search on a browser. Hence, numerous consumers can have access to similar versions of web apps.

2.    No installation is required for web applications

Web applications are not downloadable. Hence, you cannot install them. All you can do is search and use them online.

3.    Numerous platform access of web apps

You can access web applications through numerous platforms, including laptops, PCs, and phones.

4.    Easy access through numerous browsers

There are multiple browsers we use to access various websites. They include Mozilla, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and more. You can easily and quickly access the web apps through any browsers.

Conclusion

The continuous evolution of web app development is revolutionizing web technology. It is the responsibility of web app developers to stay abreast with the growth so that their applications adhere to user requirements.

Call for entries: Lifebuoy Opens Applications for handwashing ‘Chief Education Officers’

Published

on

Lifebuoy GHD CEO Globle KV002

Unilever’s Lifebuoy, the world’s number one hygiene soap brand, has launched a creative competition that will see two (2) Chief Education Officers aged between 6-12years appointed to raise awareness on the importance of handwashing among school children.

Leveraging the power of peer-to-peer learning, the ‘CEOs’ will be selected from public and private schools in Ghana to help create impact by teaching other children about handwashing and personal hygiene in a series of fun and exciting activities.

The campaign dubbed ‘Lifebuoy H for handwashing CEOs’ is part of Lifebuoy’s activities to mark Global Handwashing Day which occurs every year on the 15th of October.

 Global handwashing day is an international handwashing campaign dedicated to motivating and mobilizing people worldwide to improve their handwashing habits as a strategy for disease prevention.

In 2020, Lifebuoy launched the H for Handwashing campaign to transform the letter H into a symbol for handwashing and to integrate hygiene awareness into the school curriculum. In 2021, Lifebuoy launched its first ever children’s book- an “H for Handwashing” alphabet book – in which children can explore the Alphabet with Azzy the horse. The book is intended to support school curricula all over the world, whenever and wherever children are taught the ABCs.

This year, Lifebuoy is going a step further by passing on the baton to the next generation who will teach their peers about handwashing, as studies have shown that children are more likely to change their behaviour when influenced by their peers.

Lifebuoy is encouraging Children from public and private schools in Ghana between the ages of 6-12years to take up this unique and exciting challenge.

Parents, Guardians and Teachers are also urged to encourage their children and pupils to participate in the competition by following these guidelines:

  • Share a 30- 45 seconds video of your child reciting their campaign manifesto by explaining what hygiene means to them and how they will promote better hygiene in their schools.
  • All entries must include the #GHD2022 #LifebuoyCEOgh #LifebuoyGHD22 #HforHandwashing hashtag and be submitted on Facebook and Instagram only via the brand’s pages @LifebuoyGhana.
  • Entries are open until the 10th of October, 2022.

The two selected CEOs will get the chance to become part of Lifebuoy’s award-winning ‘H for Handwashing’ movement and receive a certificate from the Unilever Ghana Leadership Team for their participation and commitment to the cause.  As part of celebrations to mark Global Handwashing Day, they will also visit the Unilever headquarters and factories to teach employees the importance of handwashing

The ‘CEOs’ will commit a minimum of ten hours a year to help spread the message of handwashing with soap to other children, at home and in schools. To enable them perform their roles, they will be trained in the use of Lifebuoy’s decade-old and well-proven  behaviour change material which will equip them to take the message forward.

For more information, follow Lifebuoy on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @LifebuoyGhana

Customers registering their SIM cards at Temporary Registration point at Goaso in Ahafo Region

With only three days to the  September 30, 2022 deadline for SIM registration, MTN is urging its customers to have their SIM cards fully registered to avoid being disconnected.

All customers with voice and data SIM in phones and devices are mandated to register with the Ghana card before the deadline. All SIM cards that are not fully registered at the end of 30th September 2022 will be disconnected from using all services on the network.

Customers who are yet to register should start the process by dialing *404# or use the registration web portal https://simregistrationportal.mtn.com.gh to link their SIM to the Ghana card. Customers who have linked their SIM cards to the Ghana card can complete their registration by either visiting the nearest service centre/agent for the biometric capture or download the SIM Registration Self Service app on google play to complete the registration.

To ensure all customers are fully registered before the 30th of September 2022 deadline, all MTN field staff have been deployed to different locations to check registration status and register customers who have not yet registered their SIM cards.

The Ministry of Communications and Digitalization announced the mandatory re-registration of all SIM cards in Ghana last year. The registration exercise which started in October 2021 is scheduled to end on September 30, 2022.
