What are Apps?

The word app has entered our lexicon almost before we know it.

What are Apps

App is short for application, i.e. application. This application that is installed in a smartphone. The function of the apps is making life easier for users, providing them with direct access to news services, meteorological information, games, maps, services with geo-location via GPS or utilities of the most varied kind of purposes.


One of the great added value of apps is your price. On average an application costs less than €2, but below this value are many good options. There are a number of apps, about 35%, which are even free, sometimes limited in terms of functions, so that the user experience and will buy a full version, but in some cases even completely free applications and with all the features available. The ease with which are downloaded and installed makes it easy for all kinds of users, from the most basic to the most advanced, take full advantage of the offer on the market.
As for the consumer the scenario is of blue sky and light wind, for programmers time is of gray skies and heavy rains. The great difficulty with the creators of apps face, right now, is the distribution of their products and the environment for which develop, because that there are still a wide variety of operating systems for smartphones (discover all operating systems for smartphones at Internetages.com). The most popular operating systems are Symbian OS, iPhone OS, RIM’s BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Linux, Palm WebOS and Android. While there is no convergence for a compatibility between operating systems, development companies will have to decide for that operating system, or systems, wish to distribute their applications.
As the apps can work as marketing tools.
Companies are beginning to realize the power that the apps have, and right now, many companies are investing in this type of support for the dissemination of its products and services. The first successes were the media who saw the apps an ideal medium for the dissemination of its contents, but soon they followed companies.
One of the success stories is the app that Pizza Hut has created for your customers more easily could orders their pizzas. With this application it is possible to place an order, choosing from the size to the ingredients or even available in our pizza. All this with the tip of our fingers and with a graphical environment that itself opens the appetite.
Google has released an app that in addition to allow normal searches through text, it also allows the use of voice and soon making surveys from images captured with the camera of the smartphone. A very interesting feature of this app is that the searches are carried out based on the location of the user. Thus, if a search is made for theaters, cinemas to show are the ones that are closest to where the user is. This application allows, also, quite simple access to all other Google services such as Gmail, Google News, Google Earth, Google maps, etc.

The Continent is also a good example of what is already being done at national level. The company of Sonae Group launched the app Chef Online, which provides the user with a set of services that allow you to perform various research on recipes. In addition to seeing the ingredients and how to cook various dishes, you can also watch videos where cooks will showing how to get the best results.
