App or mobile site?

An app is a piece of software designed to perform a specific task on a smartphones or tablet PCs e.g. an 'email app'.  Many apps are free and others can be purchased.  View the app store of your mobile device (the operating system of your device will dictate which app store you can buy or download free apps from e.g. iTunes for iPhones, Google Play for Android, Blackberry World for Blackberry etc.)

A mobile site is a normal desktop website that displays differently on a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet. They allow access to much of the same content of the original website, but are easier to view on a smaller screen. Mobile sites are free and don't need to be downloaded from an app store. 

For example, the Plymouth University website, Moodle, Libguides & Primo all automatically default to mobile view when viewed on a smaller screen.
