Software is a set of computer programs and information that you need to instruct the computer what to do. An application is something that a computer does, such as word processing, so you need software - which may be called application software - in order to make the application work.

Software refers
to any program or data that stored on the computer. It is defined as a set of
programs, procedures, algorithms and its documentation concerned with the
operation of a data processing system.

Application software, also known as application or an app,
is computer software that is designed to help the user perform various tasks on
the computer.

Software is an all-encompassing term that is used in contrast to hardware, which are the tangible components of a computer. So everything else in your computer that is not hardware is software. An application is basically a type of software. So the difference between software and application is very much like the difference between a rectangle (software) and a square (application); all applications are software, but not all software are applications.
