Desktop application development
Let’s start with the leading question: why use a desktop app if you have a web app?
Simply speaking, desktop applications are pre-installed and therefore handy and easily accessible. They might provide a better user experience thanks to better performance (not limited to web browser possibilities and settings).
In many cases, a desktop app is not the very first app being developed, but it complements the existing web and mobile apps. It’s the next step in mobile product development that allows a company to vary their offer and adjust it to every kind of user.
It’s an investment that results in increased loyalty of users and might enlarge customer value.

How can a desktop app affect your business?
Desktop apps are rather not stand-alone, just complementary solutions for existing mobile or web apps. For this reason, the goals for such an app are pretty different. Usually, it’s not about attracting customers but gaining their loyalty, being ahead of competitors or responding to end-users needs.
A desktop app is pre-installed and therefore requires end-user engagement (and free space on their hard drive). For this reason, it probably won’t be the first point of contact for your users with your solution, but it will affect those who use it regularly and increase their attachment to the brand.
A desktop app is always at your fingertips and easy to open, so it’s helpful in everyday work (especially in the case of communication and collaboration apps, password storage, or games).
Web apps are dependent on web browsers – it’s a browser that defines their loading time. A desktop app is a stand-alone solution that doesn’t require a web browser (even if it’s a web app indeed), and it’s not limited to it. Your developers have control over every aspect of the app.
Desktop apps allow you to communicate with end-users easily. A desktop app might be loaded simultaneously with the operating system, allowing you to send push notifications to your users without opening the window.
If you offer a few subscription models, it’s the opportunity to upgrade the subscription.
A desktop app also provides a handy way for support (without chats). You can automate communications based on users’ activities to deliver them step-by-step guides or helpful articles when they are stuck. That allows you to reduce customer loss by providing user guides at the right time.
Not sure whether you need a desktop app?
It’s easy to figure it out.
If it’s your very first app that needs to be built that way (e.g. screen recording app or a game), you should create an MVP in the first place. You can read more about MVPs on our blog.
However, consider your end-users first if it’s a complimentary app for your web or mobile app. Do they need a desktop app? Will they use it? How? You can research your target group to discover what they need and how will they use it. A desktop app might need some additional features or – on the contrary – remove some already existing ones. It’s your opportunity to improve the product.

Ask Us a Question
A desktop app is a pre-installed app that works directly on your computer. It doesn’t need any browser to work.
A desktop app works directly on your computer, while a web app needs a browser to be launched. A web app can be responsive and mobile-ready, while you can only use a desktop app on a computer or laptop.
That depends. If the app is a simple MVP, 600 hours might be enough. However, more complex solutions are more time-consuming. Contact us to find out how much it takes to build your app.
You’ll have constant contact with our Project Manager, so you’ll be up-to-date.
