Mobile app or Web app

I am just starting my jurney in programming. What is better to learn: coding mobile apps or web apps? Both feel interesting to me, but I am not sure what is better to learn in current year.

Learning to code usually is the first “general” target, regardless of platform.

Later you can pick what sort of domain you’d want to focus on.

That said, in the overall scheme of things, mobile apps have slowly become more “niche” as each usually is designed for a specific platform. For example you’ll be an Apple Mobile developer or an Android Mobile developer.

On the flip side, web is available on all platforms and has slowly become more and more popular.

As such, I’d learn more toward the web development side of the two options, but I wouldn’t limit myself out of the gate.


Hello R_91! I strongly agree with bradtaniguchi.
And I support his suggestion on you starting with web apps first.
I too had that, trouble deciding but with proper research, good advice, and guidance, I saw reason to start with web dev.
you’ll find it less of hassle doing the mobile app field when the time comes
