    We are putting together the first application for our company. We do small parcel shipping, so we generate labels, track packages, and do some account maintenance activities. All of the items we are looking at doing are closely related in terms of what our customer wants to do, but are distinct in terms of data and programming.

    I am struggling with making one application or three. I would like to go with three, I think it would be a better user experience, but I don't know if there are any limitations that I would run into.

    I am also not sure if it would be better to have a single application, in terms of kendo application or tear it down and re init it as they leave and go back. I am thinking that the later would be cleaner, but I don't know if you destroy and recreate the same app 20 times, will it get buggy?

    I am hoping that I can get some sort of an idea as to what is considered best practice for this.

    Hi Randy,

    I think that the best way to determine this is to actually observe the users performing their tasks. If they have to switch frequently between apps to perform a certain task, your best bet would be to combine the apps into a single one in order to facilitate the workflow.

    One of the adverse effects of the multiple apps I can think of is that the apps may get 'reset' by the OS occasionally. You may consider investigating this aspect further, as it may also have unexpected effects on the workflow.
