Best Answer

When the phrase 'killer app' was coined, it refered to finding the next killer app. It considered the previous killer app to be email. It was considered a killer app because it was quickly ubiquitous. However you asked what the first killer application was... I don't think that question is as easily answered because different people have different opinions. One might say that the Mosaic browser was the first killer app, but there could still be more before that, like Lotus 123. In general, Email was the first killer app to be called a killer app!
