Web-based versus Client-based

When developing a mobile application you have to make a choice on your approach.

"Am I going client-based or am I going web-based?"

Which approach is the best one?

Each approach has its own advantages and disadvantages.
With web-based applications you have your application centralised. This makes updating the application easy. The application is much more device independent.
A disadvantage compared to a client-based application is that you are also transferring data related to the graphical user interface.
