Web apps and cloud apps refer to the same thing, an application accessed remotely. A good example is Google docs, which includes online Web apps for word processing, spreadsheets and presentations. To use these programs, all you need is a Web browser on your computer and access to the Internet. The applications themselves as well as the data you create are stored remotely on computers owned by Google. This contrasts with installing Microsoft Office on your own PC, and then using your own computer to run Word, Excel and PowerPoint and store your files locally.
