Library Apps for Mobile Devices: What is an App?

What is an app?

The word "App" is short for application. You can download apps to your phone or mobile device to make certain programs more accessible to you while you are on the go or just away from your computer. Most applications allow you to do almost everything that you would be able to do on a desktop or laptop from your mobile phone.
