MicroApps have been in existence for many years, but the current trend towards cloud based computing has seen several recent changes in the way that these small applications are developed. Instead of being add ons for existing desktop applications, the new MicroApps are specially built with the net experience in mind.
Social networking and media programs have a high popularity now and the newest MicroApps reflect that trend. Many are now being made for use strictly in the cloud. Games are still the most popular MicroApps, but other ones are being created that allow user specific data, such as restaurant or movie recommendations that are built on a database of personal preferences.
