What is AppsAnywhere?

AppsAnywhere is an application delivery and deployment method that supports various software vendors. In the CAEN Lab Software Environment (CLSE) for Windows, most course software is available via AppsAnywhere, which uses an "app store" interface to help students easily find and launch their course applications, e.g.:

App screen

For example, you can:

  • Save the apps you use frequently by clicking the star icon in the upper right corner. You can then click the My Favourites tab at the top of the page to only see those apps.
  • Use the Search Apps box in the upper right corner to quickly search for the software you need to use, instead of scrolling through the list.
  • Change the way your app store looks by changing the view filter under your Preferences:

Layout preferences dropdown

Once you select an application and click the green Launch button:

The AppsAnywhere splash screen will be displayed as the software launches:
