GVSU Laker Mobile 2.0 is HERE!!

Our drop dead gorgeous campus app, locally grown right here by students working in the Mobile Apps & Services Lab.

MVP and Android?

Android is a beautiful, misunderstood platform. On one hand, the Android framework provides an accessible starting through Java, but drops the ball on user interface architecture.

drone delivers coffee @ gvsu

Thanks to the clever programmers in the GVSU Mobile Applications and Services Lab no longer have to walk over to Kirkhoff to get their cup of Java! Instead, they dispatch a Bebop drone that flies across campus, and then sneaks into Kirkhoff behind a passing pedestrian.


About us

The Mobile Applications and Services Laboratory (MASL) is a multidisciplinary initiative hosted by the GVSU School of Computing. MASL offers a unique environment to faculty and students who have interests in emerging mobile technologies from both a research and educational perspective. The emergence of open mobile platforms and thriving mobile application deployment ecosystems makes it possible to explore a variety of experimental in situ research themes in a number of different mobile application domains. Our approach is unique in that while we engage in academic research in the traditional sense, we are also focused on creating an environment for our undergraduate and graduate students which approximates as much as possible the “real world” outside of the academy. To that end we are engaged in a number of projects with external industry partners in which students and faculty are working together to understand how mobile technology can be effectively applied in a variety of real world situations. We like to call this “application research”.
