I’ve written previously that I feel the mobile app world will soon be replaced by mobile-friendly functionality on the web for many reasons.

Perhaps an early indicator of this is the Financial Times. The usage of their web site for mobile devices has usurped that of their iPhone app. This makes particular sense because the app would constantly have to download new data (news) to stay relevant… so why not just go straight to the FT website instead?
