Don’t build an app based on your website. Build the app that acts as if websites never existed in the first place.
Build the app for the person who has never used a desktop computer. Because they’re coming. Soon.
What matters is that in the next five years every person on this planet is going to be using a mobile device. And these devices are going to be used far more than any traditional computer ever has been and ever will be.
The PC is over. It will linger, but increasingly as a relic.
I now dread using my computer. I want to use a tablet most of the time. And increasingly, I can. I want to use a smartphone all the rest of the time. And I do.
The value in the desktop web is increasingly an illusion. Given the rate at which these mobile devices are improving, a plunge is rapidly approaching.
