Replying to: Re: Apple's diagnosable nuttery by DarkStar
'App' is simply shore for 'application' and the word 'app' has been in common usage by computer users and others since the early 80;s.....for example in the phrase 'killer app'......which is an application which is so good that it justifies buying the hardware just to run that specific app, and the phrase killer app applies not just to computers, but to any electronic doodad....so you'll often hear people say things like 'Super Mario 64 is definitely the killer app for the Nintendo 64'.....;WordStar' was the first real killer app for home PC's...
