我也以為是這樣子... 原來如此...   如果不是大陸人用的也不是台灣人用的到底是誰說 應用 ?

应用? 难道不是“软件”吗?有什么区别?

Technically, 应用 = application, 软件 / 软体 = software. so there is just a translation problem.

And most people would say "a-p-p" for mobile apps (I don't know who first come up with this "app" abbreviation).

軟件 is literally software, 應用 is literally application.
