What is an app?
In this course, we take a look at what apps do, why we need them, which apps need the internet access, and which ones can work happily without it. We also learn how to stay safe when downloading and using apps.
With more than five million apps available, it's easier than you might think to find what you are looking for. In this course, we find out how to search for and find different types of apps using the App Store (for Apple devices) and the Google Play Store (for Android devices). We also learn how ratings and reviews help you select the best app for your needs and budget.
Managing and deleting apps
What do you do if your app isn't working properly? In this course, we find out how you can close or delete a misbehaving app, the importance of keeping apps up to date, and how to control how much mobile data your apps are using.
App tips and tricks

We also show you how to manage those little messages that pop up from time to time – known as notifications – plus handy hints for saving money by controlling app costs.
