is [it] a good idea to have a responsive design or also have apps for different devices? Yes. Meaning, both are valid approaches. It's going to depend on a wide range of other factors as to which path you take (if not both paths).
First I would like to mention that you are actually bundle three questions in one – which is not such a good idea, since it's fairly unlikely you'll get all three quenstions answered in one thread: Is responsive design good for web based software?

With the rise of mobile phones, I don't think you can afford not to do it responsively. This is essentially because many people will want to use the web from a mobile phone. I do it and I am not particularly... how to say it... a phone person, i.e. I'll mostly keep my phone in my coat when I am in work, so I don't look at it as much as other people. I do ...
Like anything, it depends. If the images are small (in dimensions) and illustrative in nature, they may compress just fine and not be much more of a download than the originals.

Or should I get different grids for every device? No, because that will no longer be a responsive design. First-up you probably need to stop thinking in terms of individual devices, that is just tying your hands, you should be thinking in more device-independent terms. There's no such thing these days as a ‘regular computer screen’, so don't fall into ...
I think a slider that has stepped values should work reasonably well on a mobile device too, especially if you don't have to be very precise with the distance. The end points can be a minimum distance, and the maximal value can be everywhere.
You can use a numeric stepper. The user may enter the value with the keyboard, or use the up/down arrows. The default value should be empty (no distance filter). EDIT : See comment by @FodderZone download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups
