mObile Apps vs mObile Websites: A Look Back

I’ve written before about mObile websites vs mObile apps, & today I point out a great article that was written in 2010 outlining with research data to legitimize my mObile ego.  Taptu, a mObile search company, has performed some great research about how many mObile websites & mObile apps there are within each category.  It seems that mObile apps keep us entertained, but that’s about it.  Check out the stats below:

Clearly, shopping & services is killing the mObile web!  I’m willing to bet the data today is still close.  Granted, obviously it doesn’t make sense to make a shopping app that you have to pay for, hence, not fitting into the content billing models of Apple.  Also, mObile apps make for a better gaming experience taking advantage of smartphone camera, & tilt feature.  Tha’s sure to change in the future though, with the incorrigible HTML5.

So what do you think?  Is the mObile web more useful than mObile apps?

    Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it
    from somewhere? A design like yours with a few
    simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out.

    Please let me know where you got your theme. Thanks
