Custom web applications are software that has been designed and programmed for a specific function. While all software is technically custom, the difference is that packaged applications were designed with a general set of features to be used by a broad range of users. Custom apps are capable of producing practically any feature you may desire for your site. Time and money are virtually the only limiting factors.
- Quality planning and app design is the key to successful web applications. If you don't have a background in designing web apps, work with someone who does.
- Custom applications can give your site unique and valuable features, but make sure the return is worth the cost.
