A Terms and Conditions can be used for both your website and your mobile app. It’s not required or recommended to have separate agreements, one for your website and one for your mobile app.

This agreements act as a contract between you (the company) and the users who are using and accessing your web site.

The simplest definition for this kind of agreement would be:

Terms and Conditions are rules which one must agree to abide by in order to use a service.

Wikipedia

This kind of agreement can be used regardless of what platform your business operates on:

Websites
WordPress blogs, or any other platforms: Joomla!, Drupal etc.
E-commerce shops
Mobile apps: iOS, Android or Windows phone
Facebook apps (related read: Facebook: Terms of Service for Login Dialog and App Details)
Desktop apps
SaaS apps (related read: Terms of Use & Privacy Policy For SaaS Applications)
Desktop apps usually have an EULA agreement (End-User License Agreement) instead of a Terms and Conditions agreement.

But mobile apps are increasingly using Terms and Conditions along with an EULA agreement if the mobile app has an online service component, i.e. it connects with the server.

What to include in Terms and Conditions

What to include in a Terms and Conditions agreement depends on your business, what you want to cover (rules and guidelines) and your website or mobile app functionalities (registered accounts, etc.)

A few examples:

The Intellectual Property disclosure will inform users that your website, logo and visuals and other content you created is your property and protected by copyright laws
A Termination clause will inform users that their accounts on your website (or their access to your website, if they don’t have an account) can be terminated in case of abuses
A Governing Law informs users which country’s laws governs the agreement. This is the country in which your company is headquartered or the country from which you operate your web site.
A Links To Other Web Sites clause informs users that you are not responsible for any third party web sites that you link to from your website, and that users are responsible for reading these third parties’ own Terms and Conditions or Privacy Policies.
