Installing the Apporto Agent
 

The Apporto Agent is a utility application that works in conjunction with the Apporto system to enable your local computer to install “native” apps from the App Store. If the system detects that the Apporto Agent is not detected in your web browser, the message “Not connected to Apporto” shows at the top of the page. You must install the Apporto Agent if you wish to install Native apps from the App Store to your local computer.
