Apps, or mobile applications are computer programs designed to run on a mobile device such as a phone/tablet or watch. Mobile applications stand in contrast to desktop applications which run on desktop computers. Web applications run in mobile web browsers rather than directly on the mobile. In 2009, technology columnist David Pogue called newer smartphones “app phones” instead of “smart phone”.  The term “app”, which is short for “software application”, has since become immensely popular. In 2010, it became the “Word of the Year”. Most mobile devices these days come with built in bundled apps. These pre-installed software can vary, as such as a web browser, email client, calendar, mapping program, and an app for buying music, other media.
