App means application.  

Most people use "app" this word to refer to an application that runs in a smart device, and in a sense, it is like a software in a computer.  All those square icons you see on iPhone, iPad, Samsung or Nokia are apps.  Each small square represents one app.

Where does one get those apps?  Of course, app stores.  Surely, they all get some fancy names for them.

In iOS  it is App Store, where iPad, iPod, and iPhone users go to get apps that can run on their iPhone or iPad.  In June 2014, there are approx. 1.2 million apps in Apple App Store, and 62% of them are free.

In the Android system it is Google Play Store, because Google is its developer.  People who have HTC, Samsung, Sony, Motorola phones/tablets are usually on Android system, and  they use Google Play Store on their devices to get apps.  Today, there are about 1.2 million Android apps in the store, and 83% are free.

In Windows Phone, Windows Store or Apps+Games is the place to get apps.  Nokia phones are all run by Windows Phone system.  There are, according to Windows, approx. 400 thousand apps in the store in April 2014.
