What is APP?

The word app is a noun, and it’s short for “application.”  Application in this case refers to a software application — in other words, a software program.

But an app is not just any old software program — it’s a special type of software program.  An app typically refers to software used on a smartphone or mobile device such as the Android, iPhone, BlackBerry or iPad, as in “mobile app” or “iphone app.”

But the  phrase “Web app” or “online app” is also used in a business setting as an abbreviation for “Web application” or “online application” — meaning software that you access and use while online, via a browser, instead of software residing on your computer (such as Microsoft Word).
