Maybe I am messing something up here ... I am using this application to store logos, pictures and other items that I am embedding in my applications. I have opened the application to "everyone on the internet" so the logos show in my headers and other parts of my host of applications (20+). My account users, although not granted access to the application, have the app showing in their listing of applications. Can I prevent this from happening?

Your users do in fact have access to the app, because they are among the 3 billion or so people on the planet with internet access.  They can remove the app from showing on their list of apps by using the "Remove app from list" icon to the right side of the entry in a list view of their apps.  But i don't think there is anything that you can do to remove it from their list.

Is it possible to assign "everyone on the internet to a role" and limit access to the application by role?

We users are in multiple Roles, they get the access rights based on the most access possible.  Because your users live on this planet, they are in that specials group of Everyone on the internet.  So there is nothing you can do to make them not be part of that group if you have the app open to everyone on the internet.

Note that you are free to make their dashboard and menu as most uninteresting.  Set it to a bank dashboard for that Role and hide all the tables if you like.

To add to Mark's comment; I usually create a custom dashboard for the OTTI (open to the internet) role in those apps saying "You have access this application by accident.  Click here to exit" - or some wording that tells them they don't need to be in there.
