Useful Apps

Hi [accessally_user_firstname],

‘Apps’ are small software programmes that run inside or independently of the web browser (i.e. by themselves in the computer just like a piece of software).

Chrome apps run in their own window and are installed on your web Chrome browser. They can run offline, and come from the Chrome web store.

These Chrome apps have been carefully curated. Use the filters to show various sub-categories such as:

  • The application it is for: Documents, Sheets, Gmail, Calendar, Drive, etc.
  • The audience it is intended for.
  • A quick description.
  • Alternatively, you can search for something which will filter the entire list.

Watch this movie to learn more about this type of ‘web app’.
