The App Game

Apps have dominated our world as the popularity of smart devices increases. And although, TrioTel continues to stay on top of the ever-evolving technology game, we realize that it is also appropriate to take a step back and explain, what the heck an app is.

“App” Definition?

According to, an “app” is an application, typically a small, specialized program downloaded onto mobile devices.

An app is also described as a self-contained program or piece of software designed to fulfill a particular purpose. Used as a shortcut, an app offers users the flexibility and speed to get into a particular website or program with great ease. Apps are typically downloaded by a user to a smart device, such as an iPad.

How does it work?

There are literally apps for everything! Social media spots, trip planning, weather checking, and popular games can all be available to you at just the touch of a button. While some apps are free to download, others have a one-time or recurring charge. Once downloaded, a simple tap will allow you easy access to a program or website.

The best way to download an app is to go to the App Store icon or Play Store on your smart device. While searching for a particular app, you will be able to see the apps that are free and the ones come with a charge. Tap the icon of your desired app to get program information and customer reviews. If you decide to download the app, simply click “download” and follow the directions.
