WebApps Popularity Rises: Hertz 24/7 on Demand AppJuly 15, 2013 No Comments
A new trend that is emerging among companies is the development of web apps to supplement their company’s presence for mobile consumers. Web apps allow for the versatility of applications on mobile devices without the company having to develop a separate app for each platform as they are written in HTML 5, and are therefore compatible across all platforms. The benefits of such an app for the consumer is that there is no downloading required as the application is accessible from any web enabled device.
One such application is the Hertz 24/7 on Demand app. This app brings the convenience of renting a car while on the go. The web application is easy to access and just as simple to use. It allows you to input the days you want to rent the car and the time when you would want to pick it up and drop it off along with your general area in order to begin setting up your rental. You are able to choose to rent a car for days or for only a few hours. The earliest you can choose to begin your rental period is one hour from the time you begin your search. Once you have chosen the dates and times for your rental it provides a list of general areas where cars are located along with the number of cars available. When you choose the area where you would want to retrieve your car, you are given a list of the cars available along with the rate for the amount of time you would like to have the car. The rates on the web app are reasonable making it an ideal option for anyone searching for cheap car hire with Hertz.
Many companies have had successful HTML 5 enabled applications on the web. The question is whether these kinds of applications will continue to grow in popularity. HTML 5 web apps certainly make it easier for companies to focus on the development of a quality cross platform application rather than having the tremendous pressure of making different applications for all the mobile platforms available to consumers but will that appease everyone? Only time will tell. If all web apps follow through on the example of the Hertz 24/7 on Demand app, then these types of apps will gain popularity.
