How Does A Web App Differ From A Native App?

Attendees choosing the web app for your event will benefit from the same content and interactive options available through the Eventmobi Universal app available on iOS and Android devices (or your custom native app if your event has one).

The web app is installed by accessing into a browser. Users can add a homescreen bookmark to quickly relaunch the app when needed. The EventMobi Universal app is instead installed via a Smart Launch page available at, which will direct the user to the applicable app store for their device type (Apple or Android). Your event will automatically launch once the Universal app has been downloaded. 

Although both provide offline access to your event’s content, only people using the Universal app will receive push notifications.


Your event information will be downloaded for offline access for both the Universal app and web app. How long this content remains available for web app users is dependent on their browser’s cache system and available storage.

Launching your app to attendees can be done in two simple ways, accessing the web based version from a browser, or directing users to a Smart Launch page that will allow them to download the EventMobi Universal App. 

Attendees using a smartphone device can access your event via a Smart Launch page, which they will visit using the following URL format: Users with an Apple or Android device will be directed to the app store so that they can download the EventMobi Universal app, and launch your event information automatically. Users who have downloaded the Universal app will also receive any push notifications you have chosen to send out. Blackberry and Windows users will be directed to the web based version of your event app which they can then install directly to their device home screen. 

Attendees who are looking to access the web based version of your app directly from their browser can do so by visiting
