A mobile device, such as a phone, tablet, or watch, is capable of running an app, which is a computer program or software application.
Mobile applications frequently contrast with web applications, which operate in mobile web browsers rather than directly on the mobile device, and desktop programs, which are created to run on desktop computers.
The public demand for apps led to a rapid expansion into other fields such as mobile games, factory automation, GPS and location-based services, order-tracking, and ticket purchases.
Apps were initially intended for productivity assistance such as email, calendar, and contact databases, but there are now millions of apps available.
A lot of apps need an internet connection. App stores, a type of digital distribution platform, are where most apps are downloaded from.
