What is the difference between Phone app and Tablet app?
Question
Application Type
Mobile

Hello all!

I can't understand the difference between phone app and tablet app.

Do they have the same functionality?

Why should i choose one of them? is it not the same actually?


Thanks,

Maayan




Hey Maayan,

I believe it's related to the responsiveness of the UI. The phones and the tablets have different sizes, so the functionalities may differ as well.

Here's some documentation that may help you:

I hope this helps!

Hey Maayan, 

They have different form factors in height x weight, and the application template and style sheet are as such different. For the rest there is not much difference, they are both considered a mobile app, and both can be deployed as iOS, Android or PWA application,  both can use mobile plugins, both support local storage, both support offline capabillities.

Regards,

Daniel
