The AppsAnywere Portal

Instead of installing apps on each and every machine, AppsAnywhere allows applications to be delivered to students, faculty and staff on-demand through an app store-style platform, the AppsAnywhere Application Catalog. After launching applications from the Application Catalog, they are loaded on the system and displayed in the Cloudpaging Player. The Cloudpaging Player allows you to get access to any of the apps you need, on and off-campus, regardless of your laptop's operation capacity. Due to licensing restrictions, some applications are instead launched via Parallels, which connects your computer to a remote server to use the application.

To see what apps are available in AppsAnywhere, view the What software applications are currently available in AppsAnywhere? article.

Find out more about AppsAnywhere from this AppsAnywhere FAQ page.
