With its promotion from “trial” status to a full-time service, UFApps now offers more software options and includes connections to popular UF portals.
Revit 2014, Maya 2014, and AutoCAD 2014 are among the new software that students and instructors can access remotely from any device with UFApps. In addition to software access, students can now log in to UF’s e-Learning and Webmail portals, as well as M Drive File Storage and Doc Finder, from the UFApps site.
Jonathan Nuñez, a chemical-engineering senior and co-captain of Gator Motorsports, relies on UFApps for access to SolidWorks 2013. SolidWorks allows Jonathan to design components for Gator Motorsports’ Formula SAE race car and perform stress analysis on the car.
“UFApps has all the software I need, and I can access it anywhere, any time—even during late nights at the shop,” Jonathan said. “It’s very convenient, especially for engineering students like me, who rely on expensive programs for most of their work.”
Students can submit a new app request online if a needed software isn’t in UFApps. You can also suggest a new software addition by visiting the UFApps table at Tech Fair on October 10…Come chat with the team managing this service!
