Mobile website or mobile app? Differences worth waiting for?
OK, on this one I am soooooooooo not the expert here, just learning quickly as I can, so forgive my ignorance. After attending many webinars about the mobile wave, it sounds like putting any money into mobile websites will be overshadowed by how people are actually using mobile technology and that mobile apps for businesses would be the better forward-thinking way to spend their time and money, at least to last them through the next 5-6 years.
I know this sounds like apples and oranges, but is it really? Can someone explain the difference and uses of the two a bit better, as maybe I’m missing something here.But when SMS messaging came out, I was thinking woo-hoo, how cool, but the cost was prohibitive for most and mobile apps with PUSH notifications are quickly running right over them with their cost effectiveness.
So mobile website or mobile apps… room for both… different or the same… another paradigm shift? … or am I just missing the big picture … or making too much of their differences?
