Apps for That

When I came to Boston, I learned that people sometimes go out after work for drinks and apps.  I don’t know why no one in New York called appetizers “apps.”  Since I like an actual dinner after work, I might not have known the word “apps” because the whole concept didn’t seem filling enough.

Anyway, I’m wondering whether the use of “app” for appetizer predated or followed “app” for computer application.
