Part II: Things to Do with your iMac  > First,an Overview of Applications

Chapter 3. First,an Overview of Applications

Your iMac is filled with all sorts of programming, which is the code written by humans that makes the computer work. Different kinds of programming create different kinds of software, such as games, operating systems, utilities, and applications. Applications (which are often just called "programs") are written specifically for you to create things in, or to work productively in, as opposed to other programs that enable the computer to make things happen.

Apple has provided you with several really great applications already installed on your computer. In this chapter you'll read brief explanations of what you have. If any of these applications interest you, read the appropriate chapter for more details about how to get started using it.
