Online dictionaries explain that an app, or an application, is a discrete piece of software, a specialised programme that can be downloaded to handheld electronic devices like smartphones and tablets. Apps can be work tools, educational resources, money managers or fun programmes. Some of them come installed in electronic devices as part of the operating system.

I have been a Mac user for several years now, although for office work I also use a Windows computer. From the time Apple introduced the iPad (in April 2010), I have used every edition of iPad (other than the iPad Mini) right up to the recently launched iPad Air. The intensity of use has increased over time. I think this is a function of several things: the iPad is a versatile device—and it offers a wide choice of readily usable and interesting apps.
