App, short for application, is now such a commonplace term that there is an assumption everyone knows what one is. If you’re unsure, Rachel has a simple explanation.
An App is a program which can be downloaded onto your smartphone or tablet. It can be a game, digital publication, or a condensed version of your favourite website. There are Apps for just about everything. Apps can be purchased, or in some cases downloaded for free, from App stores. Depending on your phone type, there are a number of different App stores which you can use. For example, Apple uses the App Store and Android devices use Google Market Place. There are now over a million Apps which you can download; you’re only limited by your imagination.
