iUSF is now live
The University of South Florida recently released a new mobile app for iPhone and iPod Touch. The app will provide students with access to the following services:
Directory: campus directory with contact information for all USF System faculty and staff
Athletics: news stories from USF Athletics
Events: major university events pulled from the USF Events Calendar
Courses: course information from Blackboard
Maps: campus maps for all institutions and campuses within the USF System
News: news stories from the USF System
Emergency: emergency and non-emergency numbers for the USF System
Bullrunner: bus tracking and routes for the USF Bullrunner Shuttle System
Help: basic help information
Your iPhone or iPod Touch will need to run iOS 4 to download it directly to your device from the Apple Store. Below is a screenshot of the new application.
With this app students will be able to quickly look up information about their classes. The app will even show them on a map where their class is on a campus map. Students can even see the contact information of the professor of the class as well. This app shows the location of the bull runner buses as well as whether they are stopped or moving. Keeping up with events on campus, upcoming sporting events and past scores is easy to do as well. The app makes calls to emergency services on each campus as well.
