Desktop Software works as a stand-alone software and rarely requires a network connection. Although, a lack of internet connection can limit the use.Many of these programs work with existing popular operating systems such as Windows, iOS and Linux.Software of this kind uses CD and DVDs to install but more often can they can be from the web.
There is a big difference between desktop computer Software and Mobile software.
Mobile operating systems are limited, unlike the PC or Mac counterparts that have more user control on how software is stored.
App versions are compressed and are basic in function limiting on how they are used. Most of the mobile apps are rendered to work with the devices storage capacity and user experience with a touch interface. Mobile applications are built to use the internet connection and can’t be used offline.
