The Emory Mobile App Catalogue is a type of internal, enterprise app store for Emory users. Among the many purposes of such an app catalog are to:
- Present both mobile apps that Emory develops and mobile apps Emory uses to Emory people in one, organized place
- Automate the complex signing and distribution process for mobile apps
- Allow any authorized Emory person to distribute mobile apps to Emory people quickly and efficiently
- Support distribution and feedback on applications during development and beta testing cycles
- Restrict access to specific collaboration groups or distribute to all Emory people
- "Hybridize" mobile web apps to work and appear more like native apps
- Curate categories of mobile apps that are of particular interest to groups of Emory people
- Serve as a mobile application inventory for policy makers, marketing, and other groups that need to know about current and pending Emory mobile in development or in use by Emory
