Is it a "web app" or "internet app"?
Main Entry: In.ter.net
: an electronic communications network that connects computer networks and organizational computer facilities around the world
Main Entry: World Wide Web
: a part of the Internet designed to allow easier navigation of the network through the use of graphical user interfaces and hypertext links
between different addresses -- called also Web
According to MW, the difference would depend on the app's use of
"hypertext links between different addresses".
Andrei, does the poker app use hypertext? Does is link to other
games/pages/sites on the WWW or stand-alone?
BTW, sorry to be pedantic about this.
Main Entry: ped.ant
Etymology: Middle French, from Italian pedante
1 obsolete : a male schoolteacher
2 a : one who makes a show of knowledge b : one who is unimaginative or
who unduly emphasizes minutiae in the presentation or use of knowledge c
: a formalist or precisionist in teaching
> Unless of course you meant "without inducing"
Yes, sorry, without inducing. I mean, couldn't you just describe the
darn thing in a sentence or two? What's the runtime? Is it just data
update in the background? Any different than what a dynamically updating
Flash app would do? Is it something you couldn't do with HTML+updating
variable data without page refresh?
