Category: Apps

Lifewire.com describes the word “app” as an abbreviation for “application.” It’s a piece of software that can run through a web browser or offline on your computer, and on a smartphone phone, tablet or other electronic devices, including smart TVs and smartwatches. Apps may or may not have a connection to the internet.

App is a modern term for software application, and it is most often used in reference to a mobile app or a small piece of software that runs on a website. It’s typically used to describe anything that isn’t a full-fledged software program, but even that line has become blurred.

Therefore, the Apps category is blurred too, but is full of handy tips, tricks and advise. Check out some of the Step by Step blogs or learn with our eBooks, How To videos and Webinars.

In the new SharePoint 2013 App model, there are essentially two ways to host apps – within SharePoint itself or from an external web site (also known as “provider hosted” or “autohosted”). One of the disadvantages of external apps is that they don’t look or feel like SharePoint. All the familiar navigation menus and shortcuts are missing, resulting in a stark contrast between the default SharePoint visual experience and whichever app is currently being used unless the app developer went the extra mile (or ten) to style their app.

SharePoint 2013 introduces a new mechanism for custom code deployment known as “Apps”. Mostly targeted at online solutions, the purpose of the App model is to overcome the severe limitations of the 2010 isolated execution model (also known as the “Sandbox”) and provide developers with a way to run rich web applications in SharePoint without negatively impacting the underlying infrastructure. Much has already been made about this new model and a lot more will be written about it over the coming year as 2013 gets released and adoption spreads. Before we get too far off the beaten track into a debate about whether or not developers should or should not be using the new App model, it’s helpful to first understand why Microsoft chose this path and what it really means for both new application developers coming onto the platform and existing developers who need to support the next release.
