Application It is a term that comes from the Latin word applicatĭo and which refers to the action and the effect of applying or applying (put something on something else, use or execute something, attribute).
For example: “I have to give myself a new vaccine application before traveling to Africa”, "The application will be intravenously to accelerate the times", "The interesting thing about this knife is that it has several applications: it can be used to cut soft cheeses, to peel fruits or to remove fish bones".
The notion of application is also used to name the regularity or hobby with which something is done . This use of the concept is frequent in the field of study, where the applied student is the one who fulfills his obligations and complies with the teacher's orders: “If you continue to demonstrate your application, you will be chosen as a flag bearer of the school”.
A computer application it's a kind of software which allows the user to perform one or more types of work. The text processors and spreadsheets are examples of computer applications, while operating systems or utility programs (which perform maintenance tasks) are not part of these programs.

There are also in this line the so-called web applications that are those that allow a specific user to use them simply by using an Internet connection. Among the most frequent examples that can be used to define those are blogs or online stores.

And they bring an important number of advantages such as that they do not occupy any type of space on the computer, which allow you to perform tasks very quickly and easily, which are updated periodically and automatically and are available to anyone .
In addition to all this, it is also necessary to highlight that the excessive use that is given to certain mobile devices such as tablets or smartphones has led to the birth of another technology sector: that of smartphone applications. Thus, for example, one of the platforms that offers more products to its users is Android.
In this way, anyone who has a phone equipped with this operating system has the opportunity to use a multitude of apps, both for entertainment and for information or communication. Some are absolutely free and others are paid, but all of them have become a reference in the current moment.
Among the most successful applications of this type, WhatsApp stands out, which allows you to exchange messages and photographs with other people at no cost.
