Both a generic and specific term, app store (“App Store”) in most cases refers to Apple’s App Store, an online store for purchasing and downloading software applications and mobile apps for Apple computers and devices.

The term app store is also frequently used for similar online stores that sell mobile apps, including Amazon’s Appstore for its Kindle and other Android-powered devices, the Android Market for Android devices, Blackberry s App World for Blackberry devices and Nokia s Ovi Store.
