To provide students the best possible educational experience and ensure application security and stability, the Academic Technology University of Florida will provide the latest version of an application available at the start of the semester.

UFIT students and faculty can use the software to access and use mostly all the cutting edge technologies such as windows based software applications and Adobe products. The application can be best used by students for completing assignments from the comfort of their home and the faculty can use the application to monitor students’ assignments.

With the use of UFApps, a large number of students and faculty can carry out small tasks that are typically for homework assignments. The application is not design for complex calculations, UFApps has a separate version for large complex and large data consuming work.

The Apps can also be used for research purpose but there is a fee on using the App for research purposes. The fee is basically for computing core and storage. The larger the research project the higher the needs of the core and higher the fee.

UFApps can be accessed from almost all the devices until and unless you are connected to Wifi. You get a better user experience when used from a desktop, laptop. But, the software is not only limited to larger screen devices.
