    It's best to get involved in both if you have time, money and resources... or to integrate one with the other, i.e. have a website and an accompanying app.

    Good to have both, for die-hard fans of your brand/business they will download your mobile app.
    For others its important if they're browsing on their phone to offer them a good user experience browsing your site from their mobile device.

    You should always look at having a mobile website first. The majority of consumers use mobile web to scope out brands and companies. Here's an article I wrote about it.

    You should only push out an app if you're offering something of value. Otherwise it'll just be another barely downloaded app in a sea of apps.

    Like others have mentioned, you should always have a mobile website first. When someone learns of your product/ brand/ service, there first reaction isn't "better check the App Store/ Play Store!"

    Having said that, I think that mobile apps are truly only useful if they provide an enhanced experience to your offering. If you're selling a product, you'll have little reason to have an app. Same for a service typically, unless we're talking about a SaaS (software as a service) business.

    Not to mention that developing a mobile website it likely infinitely cheaper than an app, will gain more exposure, can be updated without bugging a user, and generally is the first "go-to" resource for new customers.

    Cheers.

    A mobile application is a good thing to have apart from a responsive website. Most of us have smartphones today and having an app means that you are present with the state-of-the-art tools at your disposal.

    To make your website responsive to every device is the better idea. It should responsive to mobile,tab or any other device the user are using.

    Why is it always one or the other? I sell mobile apps to small businesses like salons nightclubs takeaways dentists. They now say they couldn't do without them. I will always recommend a responsive site to my customers who haven't got a mobile site. Covering all angles.

    An app, not a poor HTML5 web app a proper smart custom native app which by the way can be cheaper than a web app depends on the business who's building/selling them. On your clients phone 24/7 is a powerful marketing tool. Just my 2cents.

      This is more or less what I was going to say, when it comes to small businesses I believe all should have a mobile / responsive site and of those many could also benefit from an app...

    Mobile website is a great customer discovery tool.

    Mobile apps are a great customer retention tool.

    BOTH are important and should be created for any mobile marketing strategy.

    80% of revenue can come from 20% of customers for some businesses!

    Why not create a hybrid app, which has features of both.
    Eg - If you run a blog and want to create a app for it, make the blog website(mobile version) run in the app, and if the reader likes your blog he/she can save it for reading later.
