application : a program (such as a word processor or a spreadsheet) that performs a particular task or set of tasks — Webster
app : an application designed for a mobile device (such as a smartphone) — Webster
Application software (application or app for short) is a computer program designed to carry out a specific task other than one relating to the operation of the computer itself,[ typically to be used by end-users. Word processors and multimedia production software are examples. Applications may be bundled with the computer and its system software or published separately and may be coded as proprietary, open-source, or projects. The term “app” often refers to applications for mobile devices such as phones. — Wikipedia
Mobile application or app is a computer program or software application designed to run on a mobile device such as a phone, tablet, or watch. Mobile applications often stand in contrast to desktop applications which are designed to run on desktop computers, and web applications which run in mobile web browsers rather than directly on the mobile device. — Wikipedia
