The basic difference between product and application development is that product development depends on overall requirement in the market whereas application development depends upon customer requirement specifications. :) :)

Small funny example for these..
              we want Dosa to eat

                                   1.We will prepare it only for ourselves with sufficient batter at home----Application development
                                   2.In hotel same dosa prepared for multiple people with large amount of batter and their own ingredients --product development.

I hope it is understandable..
