Apps is the shortened form of "applications". Applications is any peice of software you run. Like your web browser, or a game, or a media player, anything. Investigate for yourself, you might find something special.

apps can be games, utilities absolubtly anything.

think of a computer, anything you use on your computer is an application, word pad is an application, paint, is and application, the caluculator is an application, even internet explorer is an application.

you can add and remove these to your computer, your phone is now a mini computer too.

For example you may well be able to download a language conversion app, type in the english and if translates it for you..... the world is your oyster hun, just just have to look which ones are usefull to you.

Yes Sassie I have, can I use that instead?
#15
Or you can use a data cable, or if it uses a memory card you can transfer onto that from your computer and then plug it into your phone.

You could probably even send it over Bluetooth or possibly Infrared lol
