    Looking at the growing trend of mobile usage; mobile presence is the MUST have thing for a brand! Whether to go for mobile website or a mobile app depends on various factors. Here I'll quickly mention the benefit of each (mobile website and mobile app) over the other:

    Benefits of mobile website:
    - Easily accessible: Users can reach you on their mobile device, no download required as such.
    - Easy to upgrade: You are not dependent on your users to install the update; its completely in your control
    - Lifecycle: Nobody can delete a website from their device however the same is not true for apps

    Benefits of mobile app:
    - Interactive: Mobile apps can be interactive with features like Push notification
    - Location based services: With Geo-tagging location based offers can be sent
    - Speed: Mobile apps run much faster than mobile websites

    For an ecommerce website a mobile app is the right solution; features like push notification and geo-tagging increases the possibility of sales. And with mobile website you can always be sure that your store is their in your customers pocket all the time. However having a mobile website is better than not having mobile presence at all!

    If your mobile goals are primarily marketing-driven, or to deliver content and establish a broad mobile presence that can be easily shared between users and on search engines, then the a mobile website is the choice. On the other side, if your goal is interactive engagement with users, or to provide an application that requires to work more like a computer program than a website, then an app is probably going to be needed.
