Definition - What does Applications On Tap (Apps-On-Tap) mean?

Applications on tap or “apps on tap” describes applications that are available for online purchase and use, or through some other similar platform.

Techopedia explains Applications On Tap (Apps-On-Tap)

Through the emergence of the cloud and Web technologies, it has become easier to deliver software online than in a box. Many of today’s best applications could be called “apps on tap.” One easy example is the switch from the traditional MS Office suite sold in a box to the Office 365 service that is “on tap” or delivered online through the use of a registration and password system. "Apps on Tap" is also a proprietary name of a company and its products.
