Re: When did a program turn into an app??

That rings a bell. And an "application" was usually a utility programme or a suite.i.e. something non-trivial. Whereas now its abbreviated version seems to be for something that is trivial. And to match the concept the existing programmes need to be trivialised (akin to "dumbed down")
