Mobile App Released

April 26th, 2016 by Erick Beck

The biggest project we have been working on for the last year is not even a website, it is a complete overhaul of our university mobile app.  We began this process over a year ago, and it finally went live on Monday.

It is available on the app stores now, either as an update to the previous app or a new download if you do not already have it installed.  If you don’t, I highly encourage you to go and give it a look.

The new app, based on the Kurogo platform, will be a significant improvement over the previous version.  Our guiding principle in the project has been to identify content that will be useful for our campus users and get it within the app.  The Kurogo platform helps us in this by providing the concept of personas – instead of trying to cram all of the content onto a single dashboard the users can select their audience type and see a screen with content relevant to them.

We do not see this as a one-and-done project.  While Phase I consisted largely of replicating the content from the previous version of the app into the new platform, the entire project will be a multi-phase process where we continually bring in more content, more services, and more audiences.

Our hope is that this can become an important content platform that is embraced and wholeheartedly used by our campus community.
