To access AppsAnywhere you will need:
- A permanent Internet connection

- The CloudPaging and AppsAnywhere clients – when first visiting the AppsAnywhere Portal you will be prompted to install these:
How do I access AppsAnywhere from my own device?
You can access AppsAnywhere via the web URL: https://apps.napier.ac.uk/
There is also a tile on the Edinburgh Napier app
When accessing AppsAnywhere off campus you will be prompted to enter your Edinburgh Napier login credentials:
Will I be able to access the same applications off campus?
Any AppsAnywhere favourites you have set will be seen both on campus and off campus. However, due to current licensing and security restrictions, not all virtualised applications available to on campus devices can be made available off campus.
The University Software Download Service website also remains available for users to obtain and locally install a small selection of software packages which have home use licenses.
Where can I find further information?
Further information about AppsAnywhere can be found on the AppsAnywhere staff intranet page and askNapier.
If you require further help please contact the IS Service Desk in the first instance.
