Do I need A Mobile App Or A Responsive Website?

 

Do I need an app or a responsive website? This is question that I get asked a lot these days….

There are a number of factors that should be considered here but this infographic from Tablexi really hits the nail on the head, and looks at some of the key questions you should be asking.

Believe it or not apps aren’t cheap and is most cases can be a lot more expensive than a website due to the various platforms, updates required and the functionality that needs to be integrated in to the app when its being developed.

If you need to access the phones features like the camera, GPS or gyroscope etc then yes you are always going to require a native app to do this. If you just want a mobile version of your website then a  responsive website is all that you need, it’s also quicker to develop and less costly.

    I think that last point is actually the most important one. Not everyone has budgets for many a device so a responsive really helps out there.
