As an example, the TCM (Turner Classic Movies) app, provides an experience that's feature rich, easy to navigate, uncompromising, and is truly the crème de la crème of mobile apps. Additionally, we're seeing more and more apps designed specifically for tablets or phones, with the tablet apps being much more functional and visually appealing then their phone based brethren; mostly due to the greater available screen real estate on tablets.
In the end, since apps and websites for a specific brand come from the same source, much depends upon whether the source (or owner) desires to put greater time and resources in the site or the app. As well, there will always be users who have a preference for one model or the other, if for no other reason, than it is what they have become accustom to.
As a personal preference, I desire not to load my mobile device (phone or tablet) down with countless apps. I have a certain few I use regularly (daily or weekly). For my other needs, I use my mobile browser and websites for those things I do less frequently on my mobile device(s). It remains, however, that the bulk of my heavy lifting is done either on my desktop or through my streaming video device (presently a Roku box). As the landscape of Internet content changes, that too may change as well.
