Navigating the App Store

 

The App Store provides access to all the applications available through your Apporto system.


The Apps list shows all the applications available to your user account. Each entry in the list shows the name of the application, the name of the developer/publisher, the application type and an “action” button (Install, Launch, Download).
 

NOTE: In cases where an application is not authorized for your user account, the “action” button shows the label Request, allowing you to submit a request for the application to your Administrator.
 

There are four application types:
 

  • Native app – Native apps are locally-installed applications that are managed and remain under control of the Apporto system.
     

  • Downloadable app – Downloadable apps are locally-installed applications that are not managed under control of the Apporto system.
     

  • Streamed app – Streamed applications reside on a remote server and are “streamed” to your local computer through a web browser. Streamed apps are the most
    common app types in Apporto.

     

  • Web app – Web applications are browser-based client-server applications in which the client (user interface and client-side logic) runs in a web browser.
     


To search for an application:
 

When you search for an application, the system reads the word(s) in your search term as a string of characters (rather than as separate words), and searches for occurrences of the text string anywhere in the application name or the developer/publisher name. For example, the search term “ad” would include the results “AutoCAD,” “Notepad” and “Cadence.”
 

  • Enter the term you wish to search for in the “search”  box, the press the <Enter> key.

    • The Apps list refreshes to display only those applications that contain your search term in either the application name or developer/publisher name.
       

  • Click the  icon to clear the “search” box and return to the full Apps list.
