What is an app?

App” is short for “application”. An app is a small computer progam that is stored on your phone or tablet and is linked to the web, so it can update itself with fresh data.


Some examples of apps include:

  • Weather apps which broadcast up-to-date forecasts onto your phone
  • Map apps which turn your phone into a GPS or SatNav device
  • Facebook apps allow you to update and view your page in a phone-friendly format

There are literally over a million types of apps to choose from.

Apps are written for specific phone platforms – Apple, Android, Windows, Symbian or BlackBerry. All smartphones come with the relevant app marketplace for that phone.
