In the last few years, the mobile-first trend began. People started preferring mobile applications over using a desktop for their daily needs. However, some applications are developed which runs both in desktop as well as mobile.
Nowadays, not only WhatsApp Web, but several other mobile applications are available on desktop as well. For the apps which are not developed for desktop, emulators are there, and the usage of emulated apps in the desktop is increasing rapidly as well. So, is it just a trend or is there really any proper advantage. Let’s discuss.
Big Screen – Lots of Space
This is probably the biggest advantage. Your app will have more area coverage in a 16-inch monitor than a 5-inch mobile screen. Let’s suppose you are using an application for accessing data related to your business. The screen of your desktop gives you more coverage and you can access more charts and tables than your normal mobile screen.
When You Are Working
Here we shall discuss the example of WhatsApp for PC. The situation may arise that you are doing something important on your desktop and suddenly a text arrives from someone close to you. The desktop version of the application spares you the worry of moving away from your work and answering the text. All you need is to switch a tab and respond.
Phone Having Low Configuration
This kind of situation only arises in case of games or applications that use heavy physical memory. Your handheld device may not be sufficient enough to run the app. The only solution, in that case, is to run the app on your desktop. The high configuration of desktop allows the app to run flawlessly without any lag.
Only Solution for Developers
People who are working on mobile application development, the best option to test the instant changes in their code is the emulated application on the desktop. They can check for the changes in their code while running the application in mobile as well, but that consumes a lot of time.
When its All About Gaming
Suppose you are playing PubG, the most top rated shooter in this year. Accessing the game via desktop will give you the liberty of controlling your character using keyboard and mouse, thereby, not only giving flexibility and versatility but also, increasing your chances of winning in each game.
Requires Less Resource to Build
Desktop Applications does not require Android SDK or any other fancy new technologies which the developer has to learn if he is not familiar with it. Any developer can build a desktop application if he is familiar with the graphical user interface of the operating system.
Increasing in the App’s Usage
Although the number of smartphone users is increasing day by day, people are there who still do not own a smartphone but has a desktop or laptop at home and run Android apps for PC. The popularity of an already popular Android application can increase a lot if it runs on the desktop as well since more and more users will start installing and using it.
