What is a mobile app?

I'm a little confused. What is a mobile app?

I have a mobile computer. There is a program on it that I can run and it lets me talk to someone who is in a different place. This then is a mobile app, yes? Another program on it stores addresses and telephone numbers of people. This is also a mobile app, yes?

Is it possible to have a mobile telephone that doesn't have mobile apps? Mobile apps sounds like badger paws to me.
