GeneralWeb services are good, but is it necessary? Pin

Hi,
Recently I was having a discussion with my colleague, to provide a mobile app to access a remote device which we frequently work with at office. and hence to provide basic functionalitues within the app.

For this we need to implement a web service.

Now the real question !!
For the above idea, we need to implement a web service.
However now the user is already able to access device over web portal within any web browser.
So, the natural question.. WHY DO I NEED A MOBILE APP ? WHY SHOULD I IMPLEMENT A WEB SERVICE ?
That's very much right.
IF this is the question, then why do Facebook, twitter have web services.. ( there is always a browser to access )

Please provide me your inputs, which are those "MUST" requirements for web service ?
Thanks.
