Or should I make 2 separate web apps?
The ASP.NET for PC based browsers is already done. Can I just add mobile pages to this app and when a user logs using a mobile device, just transfer them to the mobile pages?

it is very possible to make 1 web app to deliver content to mobile or pc, depending on what exactly it is yr trying to accomplish with the web app.
keeping in mind that, mobile devices are small, lower in memory, and dont support evthing that a normal web browser would do.
to answer yr second question, you could do that aswell, make seperate pages for mobile users, and have them redirected.

My advice would be yes, that's the way to go.
For me the theory was one thing but the real-world was something completely different. The way a mobile device constructs a page is so completely and utterly different to the way a device running 'proper' IE does that it was impossible for me to create single
pages that looked anything like reasonable on both. I ended up with two separate sets of pages which is a pain to maintain but the only viable solution for me. Remember to keep anything non-ui paramaterised and out of the webform so you can re-use it for both.

I think maybe my original question wasn't clear.
I will be using separate pages for Mobile users while PC based users will be provided a richer interface. But the core logic will remain the same and I can use the same code, like for database access , whether the client is a PC or mobile phone. This works
