Mobile Application Development

The Mobile App Distribution Service provides processes and tools around the review, approval, publication, and distribution of both internal and public mobile applications. Emory requires an internal review of all mobile applications developed at Emory prior to submission for distribution in public marketplaces, including but not limited to the Apple App Store and Google Play. This process is initiated by the Office of Technology Transfer in consultation with Legal Counsel, Marketing & Communications, and the Office of Information Technology.

A more limited process is available for the review and submission of internal mobile apps. These may be apps for internal use at Emory or apps that will eventually be released publicly, but are in a prototype, beta, R&D, or QA phase of existence. The Emory Mobile App Catalog is an internal app store for applications for use by Emory employees and their close collaborators.
