What do you consider to be the difference between a normal app and a
mobile app?

Make your views compatible with mobile screens by ensuring they resize
nicely.

The view layer of your app is dependent on how you style your views.
Thus, this is a question of which JavaScript library you’ll use or how
you set the layout of your app via CSS/HTML.

As an example, rails is a server side technology. Jquery, SproutCore,
Sencha, HTML5 etc… would be more client based. And would impact your
views directly.

The way my team builds apps is we have our Rails server handle
authentication and serves json strings for our database.

Our client side tech of choice is SproutCore. We tend to make one app
for tablets and desktop alike but choose to build a different UI for our
mobile app demographic.

The database, our rails server, is shared between all versions of our
app.
