What are apps?

The many apps (short form for applications) extend the possibilities of using your smartphone. An app is a small computer program that you can simply download and use directly.

Today there is an app for almost every interest.

You can find a good overview in the rankings of the most popular apps in the Google Play Store. You'll find apps from newspapers, social media like Facebook and Instagram, online banking, and public transportation.

Google Play is an online store where you can download all the apps you need.

Note: The first time you start your smartphone, you'll be asked to sign in to Google using your Gmail account. We suggest you register, otherwise you won't be able to download apps. You may be asked to provide a credit card when you register. You don't need to do this, as many apps are free.
