Simi Valley, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/16/2017 -- Everyone has an app these days. TV shows, web sites, major multinational corporations, even your brother-in-law's taxi firm conducts its business through an iPhone app -- but what are they? Ask G3-Development.co
Well, apps are basically little, self-contained programs, used to enhance existing functionality, hopefully in a simple, more user-friendly way. Take one of today's modern smartphones. They all come with powerful web browsers, meaning you can do pretty much anything you can do on a desktop computer in a phone's browser.
But fiddling about with a URL bar and managing bookmarks on a mobile phone it still a pretty awkward, cumbersome experience. Which is why many online sites and services now go down the standalone app route, giving them better control of the user experience and, hopefully, making everything simpler and quicker to open and use.

What the APP? The word "app" is an abbreviation for "application." It's a piece of software that can run through a web browser or even offline on your computer, phone, tablet or any other electronic device. Apps may or may not have a connection to the internet. App is a modern take on the word software or application. This is why you probably only hear it in reference to a mobile app or a small piece of software that's running on a website. It's typically used to describe anything that isn't a full-fledged software program.
Types of Apps: There are three main types of apps: (1) Desktop, (2) Mobile and (3) Web.
Desktop apps, like mentioned above, are usually much "fuller" and are comprised of all the features of a program, whereas the mobile or app equivalent is a simpler and easier-to-use version. This makes sense when you consider that most desktop and web apps are built to be used with a mouse and keyboard along with a much larger display, but mobile apps are intended to be accessed with a finger or stylus on a small screen.
Web apps might be full of features too but they have to leverage the capabilities of the internet connection and web browser program, so while some are heavy duty and can perform really well like mobile or desktop programs, most web apps are lightweight for a reason. If an app is a mix between a web app and desktop app, they might be called hybrid apps. These are apps that have an offline, desktop interface and direct access to hardware and other connected devices, but also an always-on connection to the internet for quicker updates and access to internet resources. http://www.g3-development.co/
Where to Get Apps? In the context of mobile apps, almost every platform has its own repository where its users can download both free and paid apps. These are normally accessible through the device itself or maybe even a website so that the app can be queued up for download the next time the user is on the device.
For example, the Google Play store and Amazon's Appstore for Android are two places where Android users can download mobile apps. iPhones, iPod touches and iPads can get apps through iTunes on a computer or via the App Store straight from the device. G3 has custom PP solutions for you!
Desktop apps are more widely available from unofficial sources (e.g. Softpedia and FileHippo.com) but some official ones include the Mac App Store for macOS apps and the Windows Store for Windows apps. Tip: See how to safely download and install software to avoid getting malware. Web apps, on the other hand, load within a web browser and don't need to be downloaded. That is, unless you're talking about something like Chrome Apps that are downloaded to your computer but then run as small web-based apps through the chrome://apps/ URL, such as Videostream.
Note: Google refers to their online services as app but they also sell a specific suite of services known as Google Apps for Work. Google has an application hosting service called Google App Engine, which is a part of the Google Cloud Platform.
Examples of Apps: Some apps exist in all three forms and are available as not only mobile apps but also desktop and web apps. The Adobe Photoshop image editor is a full software program that runs on your computer, but Adobe Photoshop Sketch is a mobile app that lets you draw and paint from a portable device. It's more of a condensed version of the desktop application. The same is true with the web app called Adobe Photoshop Express Editor.
Another example is Microsoft Word. It's available for computers in its most advanced form but also on the web and via a mobile app. Those two examples are of apps that exist in all three app forms, but that isn't always the case.
For example, you can get to your Gmail messages through the official Gmail.com website and Gmail mobile app but there isn't a desktop program from Google that lets you access your mail. In this case, Gmail is both a mobile and web app but not a desktop app.
Others (usually games) are similar in that there are both mobile and web versions of the same game but maybe not a desktop app. Or, there might be a desktop version of the game but it's not available as a web or mobile app.
How to download apps? Where you get your apps from depends on what kind of smartphone you're using. The three of today's biggest smartphone platforms - Android, iOS and Windows Phone - all come with brows-able desktop web sites and accompanying app stores that arrive built-in as part of the phone's operating system.
In addition to the official app stores from Apple, Google and Microsoft, there are unofficial options, too. Take the Android Amazon Appstore app for example. Google doesn't allow rival app shops to list themselves on its own app shop, so the Amazon Appstore has to be downloaded to your phone through the web browser. Install this and you're presented with Amazon's own collection of apps, which can offer different prices and levels of support when compared to the Google option. And, to go a step further, Android's open software lets anyone install anything from the web.
You may have heard people talking about using a program, an application, or an app. But what exactly does that mean? Simply put, an app is a type of software that allows you to perform specific tasks. Applications for desktop or laptop computers are sometimes called desktop applications, while those for mobile devices are called mobile apps.
When you open an application, it runs inside the operating system until you close it. Most of the time, you will have more than one application open at the same time, which is known as multi-tasking.
In January 2011, the American Dialect Society named "app" the word of the year for 2010. That action alone says a lot. Being named word of year signifies that a term is trendy and growing in popularity. However, just because the use of a word is growing, we shouldn't assume that everyone knows it — yet. That's because being named word of the year also implies that the word is newly prominent. If the word were utterly commonplace like "dog" or "cat" it wouldn't have been singled out. Therefore, we should recognize that not everyone will know the word "app" at this point.
Defining "App:" The word app is a noun, and it's short for "application." Application in this case refers to a software application — in other words, an app is a software program.
Common Mistake #1: Hiring the Wrong Coach - There are a lot of people tagging themselves as "Social Media Experts, Gurus or Certified Specialists." Most of the people making these claims are individuals/organizations who offer "basic Social Media skill sets and copy methodologies" which, in the end, will get the wrong kind of connections, a lot of the wrong followers as well as a bad reputation in the marketplace. Just like in the Indiana Jones movie, one needs to "choose wisely" or they will perish from a Social Media perspective.
Communications is a system to leverage an organizations ability to connect with ones market; Social Media is "the new" communications system. Communications is about reach. Communicating is about relational dynamics between people. Social Media provides the means to effectively communicate with ones market. However, communicating in human rather than institutional terms. If one is not communicating (listening first, initiating second) then, how in the world does one expect to create relationships with people and businesses that may want the value that one offers?

When people needed or wanted something in the old days, they'd look up information in the yellow pages. Today, people turn to search engines to find what they want or need.
Each day, on average, Google searches currently total over 400,000,000. When people are looking to purchase something they want/need, more-and-more they're going "on line" to find out what other people think or say about a certain product, service or brand. The relevancy that influences people's buying behavior is other people's conversations. That's if they can find a conversation and if it provides the value that people are looking for. If one can learn "how" to use social media correctly then they'll understand "what" the market is looking for and "where" they are looking.
To sum up:
For many, the Web isn't a place to look for information — it's the only place.
