Computers have their applications in almost every sphere of life especially in the fields where the computations are required to be done in a fast speed and in instances where data is much complicated such that the human brain finds it difficult to cope up with (Thisted, 2017). The computer is composed of several software applications that aid in task performance. Each of the software is specially equipped to perform a specific task such as Microsoft word and excel.

There are various application of the computer that are regarded as basic. Word processing is an application that replaces the typewriter as a tool for writing and typing any document such as reports, articles and books (Arndt, 2016). The computer can also be used for graphics and desktop publishing and can therefore be used to create corporate logos and business graphics. Data management is also a vital application of the computer to which the computer is used to store and manage large data and information such as emails and inventories.

The computer is also equipped with other software applications that help in the implantation of more tasks (Hughes & Foley, 2014). Also, the computer can be able to act as an entertainment gadget as it can be used to play games and listen to music. The computer can also be used for educational purposes to complement the classroom through storage of educational contents, and thus can be used for distant learning.

The computer has made life simpler due to its widespread use of the various applications that it possess. There are more than a thousand computer software applications all of which are targeted to improving the efficiency of the computer. Majority of the computer applications are used in decision making through analyses, data manipulation, document handling as well as for communication and storage of data upon collection for future use.
