Mac OS X Now that the Mac App Store has been snuck installed onto your machine alongside Mac OS X 10.6.6, you might be wondering - is there some way to remove that monstrosity of an application from my Mac? While it's not officially supported, it does seem like Apple has taken this scenario into account.

"Application", "program", or "even operating system 'feature'" are all valid.
'App' is slang/jargon for things installed via an "App store".
a dictionary.
Thanks for defining how everyone else should use their language oh great one.

Personally I do understand that "app" mean "application" which would also be the equivalent of program.

And regarding the dictionary it's most likely outdated and don't contain the word app .. So there you go ;)

Yeah, but the other way around is confusing. Recently a news site announced that a certain hospital had developed an application, and it took a while before I realized they had created an app.

But they are the same? So why do you find it confusing?

It's not advanced enough applications for you?

Only applications written in C and assembler counts, everything else is "scripts"? ;)

I'd quote Louis CK here, but it would probably get me banned.
So I'll just shorten it to "Shut up", as your post amounts to "NYEH!!"


"App" isn't in the dictionary, because it isn't a word.
It's slang, jargon, gibber-jabber, marketing, brainwashing...

That sentence alone more or less disqualifies you from this discussion, doesn't it?
