micro app

A micro app is a small app that is developed task-specifically and written in HTML. Unlike classic apps, micro apps support simple tasks and have limited functionality. For example, the display of the battery charge, the function of a calculator or a calendar.

Micro apps exist for desktops and mobile devices. On the latter, they can take over communication tasks in the social area. They are compact, modular and individual, application-specific, user-friendly and cross-functional. They can work independently or be combined with other micro apps to form more complex programs.

While classic apps support numerous features, are developed for a specific smartphone operating system, and are installed through the App Store, micro-apps support specific functionality and can be installed on all devices and platforms without requiring special coding or functionality. Micro-apps use HTML and are installed in an ad-hoc manner. They are not installed through the App Store and can be loaded into existing tools and embedded into web apps by developers.
