Welcome to the Fitness Frog Web App4:49 with James Churchill
Let’s take a look at the Fitness Frog web app in its finished form.
Fitness Frog Web App
Throughout this course, we’ll be updating the Fitness Frog web app to be a simple CRUD app that persists data using an in-memory data store. You can preview the completed project at http://fitness-frog.azurewebsites.net.
App or Application?
Over the years, I’ve often used the words app or application interchangeably. As it turns out, they’re separate terms that have distinct meanings. While this is an oversimplification, apps are smaller than applications and typically focus on a single purpose or function, whereas applications tend to be larger than apps and are broader in scope and functionality.
For an interesting discussion on apps and applications and their differences, see this post on the Appcelerator blog.
