Mini App

A Mini App is a lightweight, simplified application that runs within a more extensive, comprehensive Super App. Mini Apps are designed to offer specific features or services without requiring users to download, install, or update separate, full-scale applications. Super Apps, on the other hand, are multifunctional platforms that integrate multiple services, features, or third-party applications under a single user interface. They provide a seamless experience to users by eliminating the need to switch between different apps for various tasks. Examples of Super Apps include WeChat in China. These platforms incorporate services like messaging, e-commerce, ride-hailing, food delivery, and digital payments within a single app, making them a one-stop shop for users' everyday needs. Developers create Mini Apps using web-based technologies like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript hosted by the Super App, enabling faster loading times, easier discoverability, and simplified updates. By running on Super Apps, Mini Apps can benefit from the host platform's existing user base, infrastructure, and shared resources.
