I guess I'm in the minority preferring the website. I look at it and see a large number of features that I would and do use, which aren't present in the app. People talk about the 80/20 rule and how everyone only uses 20% of the features. The problem is that for each person it tends to be a different 20% and cutting it down to the lowest common denominator will get a lot of people miffed. I have seen too many apps of websites I use made "simple"(dumbed down) and lose all the functionality I like in them that allows me to save clicks and time. I need to make multiple clicks to get to whatever function I want, and having to deal with a tiny screen and buttons that when next to each other are easily mispressed, the whole app experience is consistently poor for me, and I am constantly impressed by the patience of people that suffer their way through playing around on their phone when they have a pc terminal right next to them.
