Maybe I'm missing something, but what's the point,
really? Why do you need to modify "application" at

If I'm selling ducks, and some customers might get
mallards, and others pekins, and some may get a
plethora including mallards, pekins, rouens, and
muskovys. A select few may also get some geese, but
they don't quite fit the duck label. But, for the sake
of simplicity, when refering to the delivery the
client receives, we might just refer to "ducks" and
not get down to the multi-colored vs. white, etc.

So, unless you absolutely need to distinguish for some
specific and urgent reason, call a duck a duck and an
application an application.
