Short Note: iTunes 9.1 Update Renames “Applications” Tab “Apps”

The iTunes 9.1 update released Tuesday included a small change we just noticed: The Applications tab when managing your iPhone or iPod touch is now called simply “Apps.” The change brings iTunes in sync with its own nomenclature as used in the App Store.

(It was our own Dave Hamilton that noticed the change, but he was kind enough to let this reporter look like a superstar and write the story.)

Update: Apple also changed the listing under Library in the left-hand column to “Apps,” as well (and yes, yours truly has both many podcasts to listen to and apps to update, thank yo very much.)
