  1. I really don’t think this is a question of either/or. A responsive website does not replace an app and an app doesn’t replace a responsive website, they’re not mutually exclusive. In fact, they are complimentary. Apps are great for engaging loyal customers – i.e. people who are familiar with your brand and will take time and space on their phone to download your app. The web is for search and discovery, and is a great tool for attracting new and prospective customers.

    For example, Starbucks has a responsive website and an app. I’m not a loyal starbucks customer, but say I wanted to grab a coffee, I would go to and then find a nearby store. There are other people who live for Starbucks coffee, and those are the people who would download the starbucks app to earn rewards, update their card etc. Granted, Starbucks is a huge brand and can afford to build both, but they’re using the two as complementary tools, not as competing tools. Marketers should take the same approach to mobile, don’t think of apps and websites as competing tools.

    I like the idea of this infographic, but I think it misses the mark in the sense that the two aren’t mutually exclusive, therefore you can’t provide an either/or decision.
