Remote applications communicate with a third-party online application, and send information from that third-party application back to Novell Vibe.
For example, your Vibe administrator could create a remote application for Twitter that displays all of your Twitter entries in Vibe.
Remote applications are very customizable, and are set up by your Vibe administrator. Consult your Vibe administrator if you have a request for a new remote application.
You can also display remote applications as folder and workspace accessories, as described in Section 8.1, Creating an Accessory.
