Application Software

Application software consists of the programs written to perform specific tasks. These programs are run by the operating system, or as is typically said, they are run “on top of” the operating system. Examples of applications are text editors, such as Komodo Edit or Nano; utilities, such as Butler; developer’s tools, such as Helix or HotSpot; integrated software technologies, such as Finder, Path Finder, or QuickTime; and most of the programs you will write during your study of Computer Science.
