In some ways, I would say that the development approach for all applications needs to change. Especially applications that need to be delivered fast. Even with agile, relying solely on IT for developing apps has not overcome the backlog of app requests that most organizations have. We need to move to a model that more effectively integrates the business into app dev - whether that is using a cloud based solution that makes it possible for a technical business user to create apps, or more effectively involving the business into the application model definition.

From a mobile perspective, there are definitely differences in the UI presentation - as is there a need to consider differences between different mobile devices - tablet vs. phone, iOS vs. Android. One possibility to consider is an approach that will allow you to do rapid prototyping. But the completed prototype shouldn't be a disposable asset. With some aPaaS solutions, your prototype is actually a fully working solution.
