Power Apps per app plan allows organizations to get started with the platform at a lower entry point.
Customers on the per app plan generally start with one or two use case scenarios, i.e., Mekorma PowerApprovals, before adopting the platform more broadly. Power Apps per app plans are an attractive licensing option for end users that run only a few apps.
Power Apps per app plan allows individual users to run two custom applications (be it canvas or model or both) and access one custom portal based on the full capabilities of Power Apps.

- Embedded canvas apps within a model-driven app will not count towards the two app limit.
- A single user might be covered by multiple per app licenses to allow the user to use multiple solutions targeted at various business scenarios, without requiring a per-user license.
- Once a pool of Power Apps per app licenses are purchased, individual licenses need to be assigned to specific environments and to individual users (i.e., if the same app exists in two environments, a user would require two per app SLs to access both).
- The Power Apps per app plan is available to education customers under faculty and student pricing. Since these licenses are sold as tenant-level capacity and not assigned to users in AD, customers and partners will be responsible for ensuring that student pricing is only being applied to students. This means that when licenses are purchased with student pricing, the number of app licenses assigned to non-students (i.e., faculty) in the product may not exceed the number of faculty licenses purchased, as this would indicate that student licenses have been assigned to faculty
