Jakob Neilson, a leading reporter on web interface and usability, has recently discussed mobile sites vs apps, specifically looking at whether you should produce a mobile website or develop a native app. In another of his insightful articles, he concludes that ...

  • mobile sites showing 'better integration with the full web'
Ultimately, 'the Internet will defeat smaller, close environments'
