Web App vs. Mobile Application

As a software developer who wants to reach the broadest possible market, I have often considered the benefits of web applications compared to platform specific, “native” releases.  Since I have already made up my mind, I will forgo the charade of presenting both sides in an attempt to present spurious objectivity.  I will simply present my opinion.  I prefer Web Applications.  A single version can be deployed to users across multiple devices and countless platforms.
