Apps is an abbreviated form of the word “application.” An application is a software program  that’s designed to perform a specific function directly for the user or, in some cases, for another application program.

Different types of apps include:

Web app – stored on a remote server and delivered over the Internet through a browser interface.

native app – has been developed for use on a particular platform or device.

hybrid app – combines elements of both native and Web applications. Hybrid apps are often mentioned in the context of mobile computing.

killer app – a program that intentionally or unintentionally gets you to buy the system the application runs on.

legacy app – has been inherited from languages, platforms, and techniques earlier than current technology.
