Don’t be confused with mobile apps with mobile websites. There are differences between mobile apps and mobile websites. Although native mobile apps and websites are delivered on same device, they are not the same. A native mobile app gets installed on your mobile device just like you would install computer software on your PC.
On the other hand, a mobile website resides on a web server, has a web address and is accessed via a web browser on your mobile device. The fact is that users visit mobile websites more than they download and install apps.
