I don't have that type of phone so I don't understand exactly what a app is and how it works. I've also heard things like "apps are ruining the free internet" type of speech and am wondering how that is?

I can't even text message on mine(very glad about that as I have no use for text) so I am in the dark ages a little bit.

Applications or "Apps" are programs written by a person or a company for a specific reason.

The most popular use of apps would be in the iPhone, or the Android phone.

For example, my iPod Touch had an app that ran an E-book reader, which allowed me to read books on my iPod when I normally wouldn't be able to.

As for how they work, im guessing they are coded like any other program, and I dont really see why they are bad at all, so I cant answer that question.
