Application software:Application software is a program or group of programs designed for end users. These programs are divided into two classes: system software and application software. While system software consists of low-level programs that interact with computers at a basic level, application software resides above system software and includes database programs, word processors, spreadsheets, etc. Application software may be grouped along with system software or published alone.

Computer-aided design (CAD):A computer program which implements the functions of geometric design, drafting and documentation.

Database software:The phrase used to describe any software that is designed for creating databases and managing the information stored in them.

Desktop publishing software (DTP):Desktop publishing software is a tool for graphic designers and non-designers to create visual communications (brochures, business cards, greeting cards, Web pages, posters, etc.) for professional or desktop printing as well as for online or on-screen electronic publishing.

Digital video editing software: The process of manipulating and rearranging video shots to create a new work. Editing is usually considered to be one part of the post production process — other post-production tasks include titling, colour correction, sound mixing, etc.

Drawing/Illustration software: graphics program used for creating illustrations. It maintains an image in vector graphics format, which allows all elements of the picture to be isolated, moved and scaled independent of the others.

Freeware:A software you can download, pass around, and distribute without any initial payment. However, the great part about freeware is that you never have to pay for it. No 30 day limit, no demo versions, no disabled features -- it's totally free. Things like minor program updates and small games are commonly distributed as freeware. Though freeware does not cost anything, it is still copyrighted, so other people can't market the software as their own.

Image/Photo editing software: An image editor deals primarily with bitmap images such as photos and other bitmap images including GIF, PNG, and TIFF formats. An image editing application that is specialized for managing photos from digital cameras. It is used to crop and touch up photos, as well as organize them into albums and slide shows. Photo editors typically do not have the myriad filters and features of a full-blown image editor such as Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro. However, they include a basic set of tools that is sufficient for most consumers

Integrated help: A discipline that combines processes and procedures from systems engineering, systems management, and product development for the purpose of developing large-scale complex systems that involve hardware and software and may be based on existing or legacy systems coupled with totally new requirements to add significant functionality.

Multimedia software:Multimedia software are computer applications which can process information. The information can be processed in a number of media formats including text, graphics, audio and video. Macromedia Flash is an example of multimedia software.

Open source software: Software whose source code is available for modification or enhancement by anyone.

Productivity software:Any application people use to "produce" information. Virtually any program used to create or modify a document, image, audio or video clip is productivity software. However, business application suites such as Microsoft Office, which include word processing, spreadsheet and presentation programs, are typically called productivity software. Contrast with "utility program," such as a file manager, which is used to organize files and folders on the computer.

Shareware:software that is available free of charge and often distributed informally for evaluation, after which a fee may be requested for continued use.

Software:The programs and other operating information used by a computer.

Software suite:A software suite is a collection of computer programs, which shares a common user interface and one with the ability to share data with each other. One of the most common software suites is Microsoft office followed by the adobe collection.

Spreadsheet software:Computer programs (e.g. Excel, Lotus) that have efficient and accurate methods of working with numbers. They are used to perform a wide variety of simple to complex calculations, and offer charting and graphing capabilities.

System software: A type of computer program that is designed to run a computer's hardware and application programs

Web-based application software: An application in which all or some parts of the software are downloaded from the Web each time it is run. It may refer to browser-based apps that run within the user's Web browser, or to "rich client" desktop apps that do not use a browser or to mobile apps that access the Web for additional information.

Web page authoring software: A Web site development system that allows Web pages to be visually created like a desktop publishing program. It generates the required HTML code for the pages and is able to switch back and forth (in varying degrees) between the page layout and the HTML. At a high level, the software is judged by its GUI tools used for designing the page. At a low level, the clarity of HTML code that is generated determines how easily people can modify and maintain the site.

Word processing software: Computer programs that allow documents to be typed, revised, formatted and printed quickly and efficiently (e.g. Word, Word Perfect).
