What is hardware and software?

Software is the actual programme its self. So you cant touch it. Hardware is computer programmes that you can touch. Disks, keyboards, monitors, chips, computers, wires, and etc., are all hardware items.

What they are used for.

You can play apps on software like Instagram, Snapchat, Vine, Facebook, Scratch, Flappy bird, Don't touch the white tiles and Crossy road. You can use hardware in an office, school, work and other places like this.
