Why is the web app more feature rich than the mobile app?

is the mobile app (specifically iPadOS) limited in a way the web app is not? If so how?

Or are the apparent differences just a result of where developers have chosen to focus their resources?

  • Different apps for different needs.
  • Mobile app orginated many years ago(and has been improved over time).  Web app is relatively new in comparision.
  • Mobile app has the screen size of phone users in view in partiular while the web app is focused on devices which offer a much larger screen.

The mobile app is not intended to be a replacement for the desktop app. On the other hand, the web app IS intended to (eventually) be a replacement for users who don't have access to the desktop app. Such uses include: 

1. Those who are using linux or a chrome book and can't run the desktop app (windows/Mac).

2. Users, such as students, who need access to their library on a non-personal computer (i.e. at the library).
