i think a lot more businesses are going to focus on apps in the future, rather than websites, because its easier to make money with them.
as far as i can see, apps are really just bundled-up websites, but users generally have to pay upfront to access the information. and then you often get little micro-payments for extra stuff inside. so that's two ways of making money that isn't really open to plain-old websites.
(how many people are going to bother entering their credit card details for something that costs 49p?)
i came across an example today when looking for information about the iTunes Festival. it does have an official website, but its basically just one page with a link which downloads the app onto your phone. all the other information is contained in the app. they dont care about the website.
