A custom application is a collection of tabs, objects etc that function together to solve a particular problem. A console application uses a specific Salesforce UI - the console. Console applications are intended to enhance productivity by allowing everything to be done from a single, tabbed, screen.

Custom applications are easier to build, as console development over and above simple configuration requires Visualforce, Apex and sometimes javascript skills.

Console Application is built from the Salesforce Panel and sits on top of the Salesforce Panel and uses Salesforce UI. As bob mentioned it is a collection of tabs, objects . This will be a fairly simply application that will help to support Sales, Support etc functionality

However, Custom Application is a public facing website and customized to solve a specific business problem. It requires Visual Force, Apex and Javascript skills.It solves complex business problems
