What is the word I need...when is an app not an app?

For android and apple mobile devices: The main page holds icons of apps. What do you call the icons within the app itself, especially if they are not links to mobile sites? Apps seems confusing. For example: ZDbox is a multi-function app for android that has, when you open it, other things you can do. Assuming that they were to look like the main page of a mobile screen, what are these things called?

Please Help Me with a Word

Is there a common English word or a technical term that names the process of taking a page or picture from the real world to the virtual? In other words, if I took a physical page and, with a scanner or camera, turned it into a file on my computer; what would you call that action?

Does this decade have a name?

It's been six years. Do you have, or does anyone you know use a term, in conversation, comparable to 'the nineties' or 'the eighties' for this decade?
