3rd Party Apps

Recommended Posts

OK, I will admit my ignorance. I have no clue why a 3rd party app is called 3rd? In other words, what is a 2nd party app?

 

I assume the first party is the one who called it. For instance, Apple invited us to the iPhone party so they're the 1st party when it comes to apps. The native apps on the iPhone are the 1st party apps (I've never heard them called that but nevertheless...)

 

So what are 2nd party apps? Is it like the mysterious second world countries? Somewhere in the misty zone between the first and the third world countries?

 

Or is there something I'm missing here?

 

Love to hear from anyone who has a clue.

 

thanks,

 

Robert :blink:

The manufacturer is the first party, the end user is the second party.

 

So, if you own something like an iPhone and write and install an application on it, that would be a second party application. If you sell it to someone else, it's a 3rd party application.

 

As for 3rd world, check out the reference in Wikipedia

The 4th party is the one you have to celebrate making a bunch of money from selling your 2nd which became a 3rd party app
