Thanks for your prolific replies. :-)
There are four main factors to consider
3) Development knowledge
4) What type of user experience you are willing to have.
A Web App for the phone's browser, is the cheapest, fastest way to the phone if you already have a website, or are a web developer, but have an awful user experience, that to me makes that my last choice, and probably wouldn't even create a mobile version on an app.
A Phone Gap is the middle of the road, use your web experience if you don't have Objective-C experience or Java experience, get a decent User Experience, but a little more time and costs.
Write a native app, more money, more time, but the best user experience of all, but you have to have Objective-C and Java Android experience.
I'm looking into a tool called LiveCode. I don't expect it to be as full featured as the native environments for either environment. What I'm hoping is that if you need a simple app., such a tool will give you a "write once, run either place" solution.
I'll let you guys know how it goes
Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!
