    Its like comparing apples to oranges. Im assuming you are probably debating whether to build an app for an organisation or build a mobile website to do the same.

    if so, Mobile web site should be given more importance because it will be multiplatform and will need less resources and time to build as compared to native app for all platforms. it all depends on the type though, if your website is heavily dependent on dynamic pages, then an app would be better, otherwise a mobile website should do

    Responsive web design

    1. The design approach requires specialized knowledge of this new approach.

    2. Single version

    3. This cost is higher

    4. Implementation time is Long development cycle

    Slightly lower user experience

    Mobile Web app:

    Two separate version

    This cost is medium

    Less time

    Straight forward approach

    Better experience.

    In short, a native mobile app/site would be one specifically designed for your phone and not meant for larger screens i.e the icons, navigation etc would be best used in a typical mobile phone screen only

    Responsive design in contrast means, one site fits all. Everything would be dynamically scaled. From the buttons, to the font to the icons would all be scaled into a larger and smaller size depending on the size of your screen.

    Native apps are designed to fit a particular operating system. It is very specific. Benefits of native apps include performance enhancement, personalized user experience, use of native APIs and offline access.

    Responsive designs are meant to fit any device and OS. They are basically HTML apps that take the shape and size of the device from which it is accessed. Code reusability is one of the major benefits of this type of applications.

    But what market demands are a Hybrid mobile applications that can be used wrapped into any native package and can be made accessible to all OS.
