Lists of software available to staff and students using the AppsAnywhere virtual desktop service.

The titles currently available are those most requested by UAS staff during the survey conducted last year. We will continue to add more software packages to this list.
At present, the only supported web browser will remain Google Chrome. It is only possible to provide one instance of an application via this service, which means we are only able to provide one version of the Adobe Acrobat product. In line with Adobe's future licensing model, we have chosen to include Adobe Acrobat 2020.
UIS is working with its software vendor to understand the implications of this for users with an existing perpetual licence for Acrobat Pro, and will provide further updates as we gain more clarity.
