Our Take

AppGallery from Zebra Technologies is an innovative new marketplace that was launched in March of 2015 to offer amazing enterprise-class applications to Zebra customers. By bringing all of the world’s best developers into one centralized marketplace, it has never been easier to identify, purchase and employ enterprise applications across your network. Zebra also thoroughly tests each application for quality and compatibility as well, so there is no guesswork involved.

Using AppGallery is also very easy; it can be accessed from any mobile device running Zebra software. Users can browse by category or device to find applications suitable for their needs and apps can be downloaded directly from the app store. This allows for much faster deployment and a better return on investment as well.

Overall, we are very excited to see where the AppGallery leads in the future since the possibilities are almost endless.

The Good

Let’s be honest for a moment- what’s there not to like about a centralized marketplace where Zebra Technologies, thoroughly tests every enterprise app that’s available? Not only does it eliminate countless headaches for their partners and clients, but it also creates a community to help identify the best enterprise-applications on today’s market.

The Not So Great

Since AppGallery is still in its infancy, it is difficult to determine how many developers will commit to the platform and design purely for enterprise-class solutions. So while we think that it’s an amazing idea with almost unlimited potential, it is still a little too early to predict AppGallery’s future.

The Bottom Line

If AppGallery explodes in popularity as expected by the executives at Zebra technologies, then it is a huge win/win scenario for developers and end-users alike. With Zebra as the conduit to ensure that each application meets compatibility criteria and has the proper documentation, there really is not a downside to be found. We think it’s an awesome idea and can’t wait to see how it evolves in time.

What’s New?

– The first true enterprise-class marketplace
– Extensive testing on every available app
– Easy access from any Zebra-enabled mobile device
– Search by category or device type
– Automatic update notifications on every product

Ease of Use

Since AppGallery is located on the home screen of all Zebra Android Kitkat mobile devices, it couldn’t be easier to browse through enterprise-class applications that can be purchased and deployed immediately. Zebra also verifies each app before making it available as well, plus all purchases and updates come directly from Zebra. This eliminates the worry of receiving unwanted services or experiencing compatibility issues.

Best Environments and/or Applications

If your business uses any Zebra Android KitKat mobile devices, then AppGallery is already accessible from your homescreen. And as the community continues to grow over time with new applications in a variety of categories, it will be an amazing benefit to quickly add new functionality.
