Utah.gov, the official website of the state of Utah, has released two new applications for the iPhone and iPod touch to allow users to quickly and easily access various state agency information. The Utah.gov application provides users with a state agency search, including phone number, address, and web site URL, a service search, covering over 1,000 citizen, business, and government-to-government services, and a section for news from Utah.gov. The second app, Utah.gov Professional License Lookup, is a search utility that lets users verify the status of individuals with a state regulated occupation or profession, including doctors, nurses, contractors, accountants, and other state licensed professionals. It displays basic license information, and color-coded results based on active, inactive, or suspended status. Both of Utah.gov’s applications are available now as free downloads from the App Store.

This and other, similar applications cause me to wonder, “Why not do this as a web app?”  A web app can be database-driven as this app also appears to be database-driven so it’s not strictly a matter of dynamic data.  So what are the relevant factors for a decision like this?  Is cost a factor? If so, how?  What else besides cost?
