  • Shows end users a full list of every application that is actually available to them
  • Install a specialist application on any Windows machine on our network
  • launch the application for use
  • AppsAnywhere is difficult to find to start it. End-users don't know to look for 'AppsAnywhere' or what it looks like. They tend to look under the Start menu when looking for the target specialist application - can't find it. On the task bar, end-users do not recognise the AppsAnywhere icon. It can be frustrating to show them
  • once in AppsAnywhere the search box does not stand our, so users tend to scroll down a very long list of 100's of applications to get to 'ZBrush'. the filters provided are not particularly useful eg most categories include nearly the entire set of applications
  • AppsAnywhere does not automatically learn your frequently delivered applications, so there is no 'Recents'. Users can create a list of Favourites manually, but this is too bothersome
