.NET is a Microsoft technology used to deliver applications for computers that run the Windows software. .NET applications are also used to deliver web applications by generating HTML and CSS that can be displayed on any browser. .NET is an appropriate vehicle for companies with existing investment in Windows applications looking to leverage existing software in new applications.
The explosion of the use of mobile devices powered by Apple, Google and other software has resulted in a huge demand for touch enabled mobile applications both for games and for serious business uses. Native apps run directly on Apple's iOS or Google's Android operating systems. iOS and Android require different programming that typically results in two almost parallel developments which significantly increases costs. Mobile apps can also be delivered using HTML5 which can be a more economical way of providing a single software product. Some of the services available to native apps are not yet available via HTML5 so the reduced development costs have to be tempered against a potential limited functionality.
Applications based on spreadsheet or word processing software are useful for providing business tools for everyday use. Applications are delivered by adding programming to a spreadsheet or document to perform required tasks.
