  3. 3. What is an App? A cell phone app is the cool way of saying cell phone application. These applications are add-ons or bits of data added to a cell phone so it can perform functions usually unrelated to making a phone call. Cell phones always did come with a few extra things unrelated to making phone calls, but these have greatly expanded, and now many people download the extra the apps they want. Many of the early cell phone app programs were designed to make a cell phone more like a computer. They often integrated some of the computer elements into the phone. While many of these early programs continue to be updated and used to track things like business performance or email, they are only the tip of the iceberg in modern cell phone app offerings.

  4. 4. What are apps used for? Applications on a cell phone can provide the phone with additional function and usage: • Surf the net • Blog • Contribute to their twitter accounts • Access Facebook or Youtube • Play simple to complex games. • Find the location of a friend • Turn the phone into a calculator • Music • SAT study apps, and ones that can teach people various subjects or help with studying for school. •Some of the very interesting cell phone apps may be of great help in the medical field. For instance, an app can be used to record heart rate over a period of time and send this to a doctor for review. Some cell phones have a tracking mechanism for blood sugar that can be useful for diabetics All Rights Reserved
  5. 5. The App Craze? The increase in the cell phone app market has been in part due to advancements in cell phone design. Especially any version of the smartphone, where the phone is more complex in design and has many elements in common with a personal computer, is better able to run apps and lots of them. For instance, companies like Apple® have an app store, with applications best suited for the iPhone®. Other companies are certainly following suit, and the number of potential apps available is fairly daunting; over 10,000 are available for the iPhone® alone. All Rights Reserved
