Who are the applications?: are those programs that enable the interaction between user and computer (communication), giving the user option to choose options and execute actions offered by the program. There are countless number of application types. Brian M. Krzanich often addresses the matter in his writings. An application in final is a software program that allows a user to use a computer with a specific purpose. Applications typically run on the operating system are part of the software of a computer A software application usually has a single objective: surf the web, check e-mail, scanning the hard disk, edit texts, play (a game is a type of application), etc. An application that has multiple programs is considered a package. They are examples of applications Internet Explorer, Outlook, Word, Excel, WinAmp, Oracle applications. In general, an application is a program compiled, written in any programming language.
Applications can have different distribution such as freeware, licenses shareware, trialware, etc. Applications have some kind of interface, which can be a text interface or a graphical interface (or both). It should also be noted that the distinction between applications and operating systems often is not clear. In fact, in some embedded systems there a clear distinction for the user between the system and its applications. The difference between application programs and the system is that the system involving helps the user to interact with the computer and make use more how it, while the application are programs which cooperate with the user to carry out the above-mentioned activities. A distinction between vertical, specific purpose for a very limited of users (doctors, lawyers, architects) type, and applications can be useful within application programs, horizontal, useful for a wide range of users of any type.
There are many fields in which you can find examples of computer applications. In education. The role of computer has to be defined within the current methodology of teaching.
