UMass Boston Releases Mobile App for iPhones and Android Devices

Targeted News Service |


BOSTON, June 25 -- The University of Massachusetts Boston issued the following news release: The University of Massachusetts Boston released its first mobile application today. The free app can be downloaded from the App Store for iPhones or iPads, or from Google Play for Android devices. The new UMass Boston app will enable smartphone users to view upcoming campus events, navigate using a multi-layered map of campus, and find out what campus dining options are open. Other features include construction updates, campus news, the campus directory, social media updates, photos, and videos. The app will also give the university another means to communicate emergency messages to students in the event of a campus closure. UMass Boston worked with Cambridge-based Modo Labs to produce this app. Modo Labs is a leading producer of mobile apps for universities. The company has previously produced apps for Harvard, MIT, Dartmouth, NYU, Brandeis, Boston College, and Notre Dame. Developing a mobile app is an important step forward for the university. According to a Boston Globe survey conducted this year, 90 percent of UMass Boston students own a smartphone, and 43 percent own a tablet computer. The app is designed to give students access to key information on the devices that they use most frequently. In the future, UMass Boston intends to expand the app's capabilities to include modules for course registration, library access, the bursar's office, and other frequently requested campus resources. To download the UMass Boston app, visit the App Store (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/umass-boston/id882031885?mt=8) or Google Play (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.umass.umbostonmobile).
