What are apps and extensions?

Chrome OS will not run applications designed for Windows, Mac, or Linux computers. They will also not run applications designed for Android (Google Play) or iOS (App Store). Instead, Chrome OS has its own web store aptly named the Chrome Web Store. These apps can sometimes be full applications that act like traditional programs, or sometimes just act as links to web apps, programs hosted on a website with limited offline capabilities.

*Some recommendations are: the “save to Google Drive”  and “Google tone” extensions; the “Pixlr editor” and “NEWSELA” apps.
