Mobile App Design or Responsive Website Design, What’s Better?


Mobile app design and development is a great way for many to acquire traffic, exposure and gain prospect customers to your business. Mobile Apps are not always the best solution for every business as it vastly depends on the goals and objectives, and nature of the business.


Responsive web design is a single version of your business web design while mobile app design & development is specifically for Android and iOS mobile devices. Maintaining both website and app is not easy, but with the help of the Thought Media team managing both platforms is certainly made easier.

Mobile App Design & Development

Implementation & Timeline

Responsive web design typically doesn’t take us much longer the implement when developing a brand new website design. When we create mobile apps, the process is similar to custom web design and time-frame will vary depending on the scope of work, and if we are developing for both Android and Apple iOS platforms. It’s imperative that responsive web design is utilized for any new or existing website as Google ranks mobile websites higher in the search results.

Design and Approach

In terms of usage, responsive web design is preferred by many users when compared with apps – which require installation to the mobile device or tablet. Many simply search for what they’re looking for and visit the (hopefully!) responsive web design directly from the Search Engine Results Page (“SERP”). The app development costs are also comparatively higher than responsive website design. We typically assess the needs of our business customers to determine if an app development makes sense.. Fast food delivery services would be a great example of a business which may inquire for app development. Perhaps another may wish to have an app designed for trade show presentations on tablets and devices.. let’s just say, there’s many reasons! It’s obvious you’d want to hire a quality app development company.. we’re bang-on with our design skills and would love to work on your app or website!
