UW-Superior launches mobile app

It's official: Buzz is going mobile.

The UW-Superior Mobile App is ready and waiting for students, staff and faculty members to download from Apple Computer's App Storeand Google Play.

Users of iPhones, iPads, iPods and Android phones and tablets will find much-improved access to UW-Superior's online content.

The app features streamlined navigation, a favorites function, tap-to-call function from phone directories, and even a real-time listing of open machines in campus computer labs.

Chancellor Renée Wachter expects the new mobile app will make it easier for students to contact faculty members and find out what's happening on campus. "This free app is a great example of UW-Superior's  commitment to student success and integration of technology," she said.

UW-Superior webmaster Mike Twining said developing the app took about a year as he worked on other technology  projects. The app's initial features were based on a campus survey last fall.

There's no set schedule for pushing out updates. Those will depend on staff resources and the complexity of new features. One hoped-for feature is to integrate some of the core My-EHive functions into the app.

Twining was happy when he received word that the iOS version of the app had been approved by Apple. "I was excited because their approval process  is a lot more strict than Android and they have more rules to follow," he said.

Twining and the rest of the Mobile App team welcome comments and ratings.

 "Anything is welcome, good, bad or bugs," Twining said. "Even if it's negative, comments mean people are actually trying it out."

Users can leave comments in the App Store, in the  Android Apps section of Google Play, or on the app's website.
