1.    What does the native app offer that the mobile web doesn’t?

A mobile website gives you the limited information about what a user is looking for particular information on that site or a common search the user would do on that particular website through their mobile. Here you have to search and wait for the information depending upon the server speed whereas a native app that is already downloaded on your phone where you can frequently use it and you are familiar of all its content because you see it every time on your phone. If its your own user id then you are ready to go with one click to search your stuff and load up faster.
1.    2. Why do you think Yelp and Zillow have both a Native App and a Mobile Website?

Yelp is just an another way of googling stuff locally with good deals and many more. Once again having a yelps native app is you are so much familiar with the icons and navigations where as the yelps website takes time to download depending on the browser service have on your phone or what if the signal drops down. Most the people don’t have the smart phone so they have the feature of mobile website.

Zillow also have good reasons for both having their native app as well as mobile website. Eg: Someone dealing with the real estate wouldn’t mind comparing the prices online then there itself instead doing some research in the market.

Having two different features are also helpful in sense if on one’s phone website is not working he can pass on the information looking at the app or vice versa. They are still sharing the knowledge through different means.
