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.

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


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"? ;)

They are the same technically, but not functionally. If a hospital developes an application, that's meant for internal use, to aid hospital personal, or at most to interface with the "customers" via a webportal. If a hospital develops an app, that's for use by "customers" for their personal use (but with functionality linked to the hospital's function). That's a whole world of difference.
