On 21st April 2015 Google expanded their use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. With the latest “silent” move by Google and their acquisition of Agawi, it looks like the tech giant is moving towards replacing websites with apps.

Mobile apps are software applications designed to run on smartphones, tablet computers and other mobile devices. They are typically available through native distribution platforms, so-called app stores which are operated by the owners of the mobile operating system. Some of the most popular operating system native stores are Apple's App Store and Google’s Google Play Store.

The App and Google Play Stores together now offer around 3 million apps; in 2014 there were 102 billion downloads. So it’s a big market with a large user base for both iOS and Android.
