UC Davis has released UC Davis Mobile, an official UC Davis app with information about campus life, news and events. It is designed for faculty, students and staff alike.
The app, available for Android and iOS at no charge, pulls information from various sources, including real-time Unitrans bus schedules and Aggie Feed. (Aggie Feed collects information from campus organizations into a single stream.) The app can be downloaded from Google Play and iTunes.
UC Davis Mobile fills a gap between students and the information they need on campus, says an announcement from the Associated Students of UC Davis, and by increasing student awareness of community events, UC Davis Mobile should help students participate in campus life.
UC Davis Mobile was created by several groups working together: ASUCD's Creative Media unit, Information and Educational Technology, and Strategic Communications. The app's creators are working with Computer Science Professor Ken Joy to devise a way that students can develop new features for UC Davis Mobile for course credit. (Joy's students created an earlier app, also called UC Davis Mobile, in fall 2010.)
UC Davis Mobile has these features, although the Android version presently has only the first six:
- Aggie Feed
- Real-time Unitrans schedules
- DavisMail access
- Course listings by quarter
- SmartSite integration
- Campus and parking area maps
- Articles from The Aggie and Dateline
- KDVS live stream
- Aggie TV video feed
- Essential campus contact information
- UC Davis Athletics news
- Aggie Dish (dining hall menus)
