New Account - Measurement Protocol

[ Edited ]

I am working on a project where I plan to use the Measurement Protocol to track events. The project is neither a website or a mobile app, but is an application with internet connectivity which is what the Measurement Protocol is for according to its use cases. So I go to create a new account and then the first question is what do you want to track a website or a mobile app, there is no option for Measurement Protocol or other devices. Which one should I select? I'm thinking mobile app... Thanks for the info.

Use website - then log all your actions as pageviews and/or events. Using App sets up a completely different model for reporting, and I found it a lot more restrictive.
