Applications

Applications, which are also known as programs, are software packages you use to get work done. Here are some examples:

  • Word processors, such as TextEdit and Microsoft Word, are used to write letters, reports, and other text-based documents.

  • Spreadsheets, such as Microsoft Excel, have built-in calculation features that are useful for creating number-based documents such as worksheets and charts.

  • Databases, such as FileMaker Pro, are used to organize information, such as the names and addresses of customers or the artists and titles in a record collection.

  • Graphics and presentation programs, such as Adobe Photoshop and Microsoft PowerPoint, are used to create illustrations, animations, and presentations.

  • Communications programs, such as Internet Connect and Microsoft Internet Explorer, are used to connect to other computers via modem or to the Internet.

  • Integrated software, such as AppleWorks, combines “lite” versions of several types of software into one application.

  • Utility software, such as Disk Utility and StuffIt Expander, performs tasks to manage computer files or keep your computer in good working order.
