    Interesting article but I’d note that some retail apps (Banana Republic for iOS) for example actually uses their mobile website within the app to give the appearance of a completely native application.

    I’m not sure if such techniques are considered in this study and how those kinds of apps land on the mobile web or mobile app scale.

    I read a mobile marketing report the other day that said that only 35% of those people who download apps actually use them… This make you think before investing in your next mobile application.

    Both have their own importance and usage. I prefer a mobile web than Apps. Mobile Web can be compatible to all mobile phone devices while apps is specific to device.

    I personally prefer to have the option of choosing
    between an app and mobile web. Not all retailers have the means to have both available,
    but consumer choice is definitely a plus. I prefer to use a mobile app for
    stores I use frequently, whereas I would prefer a mobile website for a retailer
    I seldom use.

    I’m an Android user and memory space for apps is an issue.  Until I can move any app I want to to a SD card (a size  of my choosing), I will use the mobile website instead of cluttering my phone with rarely used apps.

    I prefer to use a one application to access all social websites I need.
    But as for me for shops it’s more comfortable to use web browser
