What is the difference between a Responsive Mobile Website and a Mobile Application?

We are asked this question on a daily basis. There are some unique differences between a responsive mobile website and a mobile application.  But before we dive into the differences, let's establish what each one is.

Responsive Mobile Website

A responsive mobile website is an application created for the internet.  It has been designed to be viewable on all devices from 17' laptops to '3 cellphones.  Most websites are designed to be responsive.  This is a huge selling point for most web designers and developers.  Most videos are resized to be viewable on all devices, most audio works on all devices, and most forms can be filled out on all devices.  So why do you need to have a mobile application?  You really do not, unless you are trying to have an online presence that includes personalized services and works offline.

Confused.  Let us give a brief description of a mobile application.

Mobile Application

A mobile application is a product that you have to download and install on your tablet or cellphone.  Some unique feature is mobile applications have push notifications, so you can communicate directly with anyone who downloads and installs your application. You can provide information on events, daily tasks, etc.  Most cellphone users are used to receiving push notifications from their email carrier.  Imagine you providing the same information to engage your target audience.  Mobile applications work when your cell phones are offline.  If you are in an area with poor internet services, this will not harm your ability to provide information to your target audience.  Because mobile applications are task-driven, they are user-friendly.  You are engaging with your target audience on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.


If you have a website and are looking to be more engaged with your target audience.  You want your daily reading to be forwarded to your flock.  You need your donor or potential event visitors to get reminders and thank you after the event.  Mobile applications are your friend.  In today's marketing world, you need to be more engaging.  If the pandemic from 2020 taught us anything, we have to be engaging if we want to continue to exist.  We offer mobile applications to WordPress website owners for as little as $1,000.00.  We will put your application in Google Play Store and iOS Store.  Typically it takes us anywhere from 3 - 10 days to have you live in both stores.  IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY WITH OUR SERVICES, THEN FULL REFUND WITH NO QUESTIONS.
