Good question Cindi. I'm going to side with purpose built BI mobile applications, since I think there's better speed, and it's quicker to access them. I suppose it always comes down to the use case, but my supposition is that if you want the information on the mobile device, it's because you want quick information on the go. And if you really want to sign in to the browser, type in the URL, wait for the information to load and spend time scrolling around, you probably have time to go to your computer and do that.

For this reason, I would like to see features that support always-on access to business intelligence (and offline caching). Also, you know the application that bumps business card information between two iPhones? It would be great to bump a report over to your colleague's phone too.
