I have been asked to create sharepoint site to track company expenses. Functionality included:

-Implement for SP 2013 -Users create expense requests. -Managers approve requests. -Basic reporting. -Emails sent to managers at the end of every day updating them of new requests.

In sharepoint 2010 i would create a wsp file (then import to vs2010) and implement using a web template, is this what i should do in SP 2013 or should i use the app model?

I feel a web template would be all that is required here, unless you need to do any custom apps? – Hugh Wood Nov 6 '12 at 14:15

If you are going to distribute your solution, use apps. Otherwise, in your case web template is more usable for end users and simplier in development.
