What is the difference between the NPR News iPhone application and the NPR Mobile website (m.npr.org)?

In general, mobile applications are computer programs that you download to your phone and that run on its native operating system.  In contrast, mobile web sites (including NPR Mobile) are just like regular websites, except that they have been optimized for use on mobile devices (small screens, no mouse, and limited keyboards in many cases).  You use a browser – like Safari on the iPhone – to view and interact with mobile websites.
