Apps On Demand

App on Demand 

Apps on Demand​ service was launched at Deakin in 2016. This service enables Deakin’s staff and students to run full desktop applications from wherever they are. App on Demand allows access to the software on any internet-connected device, on or off-campus.  

Deakin’s staff and students can log into Apps on Demand using your Deakin username and password at www.appsondemand.deakin.edu.au 

If you are using an iPad, iPhone or Android device, you can login by downloading the Citrix Receiver app. https://support.deakin.edu.au/kb_view_customer.do?sys_kb_id=a88a4612d08c520076e07f5780f8db51 

There are more than 70 apps available (you may not be able to access them all as some are dependant).  If you can’t find the software you need access to, contact your school to request an additional license, so that it can be made available in Apps on Demand.
