Computer Basics: Understanding Applications
No matter what type of device you have, you’ll need to use applications (or “apps”). Applications allow you to do all kinds of things, from creating documents, to viewing videos, to playing games. We’re going to show some examples of how you might use apps. For example, if you have a smartphone, you can use an app like Google Maps to search for a coffee shop. It will use location data from your phone to find nearby coffee shops, and then it can give you turn-by-turn directions to the one you choose. We hope you enjoy!
