Software is what allows you to use your smart device or computer, and the right software can completely change how you interact with technology.
Our software guides cover personal and professional software to help you sift through the options to find affordable apps that will make your life easier and more productive. Read on to find out how many different types of software can benefit you.
What is software?
Software is a collection of instructions or code that allows you to use your computer, phone and other devices. There are two main types of software: system software and application software. System software runs all smart devices, including computers, tablets, phones and smart speakers. This software is often already installed on the device when you buy it.
Application software is what most people generally refer to as software. It helps you perform tasks using your device. For example, many people use application software to work, communicate with others, play games, increase their digital privacy and consume media. If you have a smart device, you probably use some form of application software every single day via different types of apps.
