What is an Application?

The terms applications and programs are often used synonymously (although an application is only one form of programming). Application refers to the software package you use to create your documents, such as AppleWorks, PageMaker, FreeHand, Quicken, Photoshop, Internet Explorer, Mail, etc. They all do something different; they each have a particular function. For instance, you can keep track of your finances in Quicken, but you can’t open photographs in Quicken. You can open and edit photographs in Photoshop, but Photoshop will not help you with your finances. Sometimes it takes a little research to discover which software applications meet your specific needs.


This is not an application icon—it is the folder that stores the application. Open this folder to find the application icon.
