Well this is turning out to be a big year and it is only March. Not only is it an election year, leap year and the Summer Olympics start in August but the Xerox App Gallery has been launched. The Xerox App Gallery is a selection of apps that add new features or capabilities for your multifunction printers. The apps in the Xerox App Gallery are designed by Xerox and Xerox third-party partners.
In the App Gallery there are apps that can improve productivity, simplify workflows, convey pertinent business information, and enhance the overall user experience. With an App Gallery account you will have direct access to apps for your machine. An App Gallery account allows you to view and acquire Apps, install Apps to the multifunction printers and manage your Apps, licenses and your multifunction devices.
The Apps in the Gallery are either free with no license required or they may require you to purchase a license, these Apps are called Paid-License Apps. Apps generally add, extend and/or customize the functionality of the Xerox Multifunction Printers. Apps available in the Xerox App Gallery include Apps in the following categories:
- Printing, Scanning, and Faxing Apps
- Cloud Apps
- Device (MFP) Management Apps
- Third-party Partner Apps
Now the question is how do you get the Xerox App Gallery? Let me explain the options. By default, many Apps from Xerox App Gallery, including the Xerox App Gallery App, are pre-installed and available on all 2016 Xerox ConnectKey Technology-enabled i-series MFPs. Most of you will have a device that does not have the 2016 Xerox ConnectKey Technology, you can manually install the Xerox App Gallery App. The Xerox App Gallery App is available from the Xerox App Gallery Web Portal.
Once you have the Xerox App Gallery App installed you can select it from the control panel and either create an account or log in to an existing account. When you are logged in you can perform App Gallery functions such as browse available Apps and Install and update Apps.
To use the Xerox App Gallery App your device must meet the following requirements:
- MFPs require a network connection.
- The MFP must be loaded with the software for 2016 ConnectKey Technology-enabled MFPs.
- MFPs must have Xerox Extensible Interface Platform (EIP) version 3. 5 or higher installed.
There are instructions in the online support for the Xerox App Gallery that will explain how to enable the Xerox Extensible Interface Platform (EIP). To find out if your multifunction machine can utilize the new Xerox App Gallery please see the solution for compatible machines in the online knowledgebase for the Xerox App Gallery.
