Pitt App Store

Overview

The Pitt App Store consolidates Pitt-related mobile apps and delivers them from one convenient location. It includes apps for the University’s Web-based course management system, lynda.com training videos, Box cloud storage and collaboration, Microsoft Office, campus news, Pitt athletics, career fair preparation, Pitt PS Mobile, and more.

Departments or individuals who develop mobile applications can leverage the Pitt App Store to distribute those apps to the University community. Distribution can reach the entire Pitt community or can be restricted to individuals affiliated with a specific school or group within it.

The Pitt App Store can be downloaded for iOS or Android smartphones and tablets at appstore.pitt.edu. A Web version of the Pitt App Store is also available that has been optimized for use on mobile devices. As new Pitt-related apps are developed, Computing Services and Systems Development adds them to the Pitt App Store.

What is the Pitt App Store?

The Pitt App Store is designed to serve as your one-stop shop for University-related apps. The right apps can help make your life at Pitt easier. But sometimes finding those apps can be difficult. Some apps may be available through public stores, but other apps may need to be downloaded separately from various locations. The Pitt App Store puts a wide array of helpful apps at your fingertips. You’ll find apps for Blackboard, helpful lynda.com training videos, Box cloud storage and collaboration, Microsoft Office, campus news, career fair preparation, and much more.

And as new Pitt-related apps are developed, we’ll add them to the store. So downloading and installing the Pitt App Store today is also a great way to stay updated on new apps that might be useful.
