SharePoint 2013 Apps

This article will tell us what are apps in SharePoint 2013. You can also check friendly URL in SharePoint 2013 and meeting workspace in SharePoint 2013.

Apps for SharePoint are self-contained pieces of functionality that extend the capabilities of a SharePoint website. An app may include SharePoint components such as lists, workflows, and site pages, but it can also surface a remote web application and remote data in SharePoint. An app has few or no dependencies on any other software on the device or platform where it is installed, other than what is built into the platform.

Apps have no custom code that runs on the SharePoint servers. Instead, all custom logic moves "up" to the cloud or "down" to client computers.

In SharePoint 2013 Apps can store in  SharePoint Store and the App Catalog.

We can use Visual Studio 2012 to create Apps easily because Visual Studio 2012 includes a new app project template in the Apps folder named Apps for SharePoint 2013.
