Few companies with the bigger sized pockets go for both mobile apps and websites but few are there that has to choose between both depending upon the cost, usability, features and targeted audience.

However to approach even the potential customers mobile apps are preferred than the websites due to following strong reasons

Freedom for designing

There is no doubts that advancements in technology has given many designing options to web designers but still the websites have to rely on browsers for most of functioning but these restrictions are not there in the mobile apps.

Hence the apps can be designed with lot of designing options as per wish to facilitate the user like tap, swipe, drag, pinch, hold and many more. These innovative functions can allow users to perform a task in better way.

Great stream for conversions

Prime objective for entering the online network is to convert the visitors in the clients so the mobile apps can do the same as they push the users into the funnel. Apps can even used for both top and bottom of the funnel users.

These apps are more targeted so have the higher conversion rates and even can be used to tap specific users into the funnel but the websites can reach to the diverse audience which is less targeted.

Presence of brand

As the users have great love and passion for using the mobile devices so they install the specific apps and access them regularly. Their regular encounter can become branding exercise for mobile apps.  Even the app icons work as advertisement for the brand and work as innovative ad banners.

Even the installation and presence of app on user’s mobile device can make huge difference to the perception of them about the company.

A well designed appealing hap can knock the door of users’ mind and can perform action faster than the websites. These apps store the data locally on the device so can get load earlier and work quicker whereas the websites store data on web servers so work bit slower than apps.

Even faster working of apps can be justified technically as the websites use Javascript code for their functioning but the apps have different framework that work almost 5 times faster than Javascript code.

All these reasons are contributing in the preference of apps than the websites for delightful user experience and promotion on online presence of company.
