Apps

I was in Laos.  I wanted to know what the current exchange rate was.   I wanted to know how many kip (8,000?) I could get with my US dollars.  A guy comes up to me in a cafe and says, “Hey man there’s an app for that.”  And then he shows me.

What he meant by “app” (for those of you who just appeared from under a rock), is “application.” An application is a device that one downloads off the internet and then uploads to one’s “smart phone.”

In any case, if you wish to try and make sense of an ever changing world (with the possibility of becoming even MORE confused), then download, or develop, an app. There is no shortage of apps on the market today (about 50,000, but that is just an uneducated guess), and room for a lot more.

After all, in spite of the number of apps currently out there, surely there is room for one more.
