"Apps" or applications are computer programs designed to run on smartphones, tablet computers and other mobile devices. Mobile games, factory automation, GPS and location-based services, banking, order-tracking, ticket purchases and recently mobile medical apps are few examples of mobile apps.
There are literally thousands of apps on the Google Play Store! You can select and download the apps that you want. They are categorized under Games, Movies, Books, Apps, etc., and inside each category is a view of Top Paid and Top Free apps that are downloaded by other users. Most of the apps, around 80%, are free to download, while around 20% of them are chargeable. Some of the apps are also on a Freemium basis. When we say "Freemium" that means the apps are free to download but have in-app purchases. In-app purchases are credits/points that you need to buy while going through the application, mostly applicable in games. In-apps purchase features, in the meanwhile, are additional content or services that can be found and purchased within a mobile application. For example, Clash of Clans is an App and the Gems that you would like to purchase in app for better gaming experience.
