App is short for ‘application’ – which is another name for a computer program. Normally, when people talk about apps they are almost always referring to programs that run on mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets, iPads etc.
Apps are programs used to enhance existing functionality, usually in a simple, more user-friendly way, for mobile devices.
Today’s smartphones come with powerful web browsers, meaning you can do pretty much anything you can do on a desktop computer in a phone’s browser. However, fiddling about with a URL etc on a mobile phone can still be awkward which is why many online sites and services now go down the app option so that everything is simpler and quicker to open and use.
