Web App Deployment

Web applications are useful for navigating to complex URLs with many characters. You can place Web application icons on the springboard to minimize the frustration with accessing these website. These icons connect end-users to internal content repositories or login screens, so end-users do not open a browser and type out a long or complex URL.
