Pitch: Universities and businesses package applications they use as organizations for their students, employees, prospective students, or customers.
Marketplaces for applications may soon replace the traditional desktop, and has already made strides in replacing sketchy websites with download links and tons of advertisements. Being able to verify a bundle of apps as an organization could save time and paper with respect to getting someone new up to speed. Taking a concept that was made popular by Twitter; the verification badge for a “University of Texas App Kit” or a “Google App Kit” is exciting.
The idea is simple enough, a place like Harvard says these are applications that Harvard students use as a result of a survey or simply, these are apps the University recommends. This helps with the efficiency and productivity of getting new students up to speed and it also attracts the potential student to prepare early or gives the fan of how Harvard operates a window into the most widely used apps on the campus.
