frontpage_maslA couple of weeks ago GVSU issued a formal press release announcing the Laker Mobile app that students in the Mobile Applications and Services Lab implemented.  The same day a GR Press reporter came by and interviewed us in the lab, and the resulting article (which also covered similar projects at other universities around Michigan) was published on the front page of the GR Press over the weekend.  You can read the full article online here.

A lot of the leg work for the app was actually done last Fall and finished up over the holiday break, but it took a while to actually get it into the App Store.  Now that its out there, we really are interested in your feedback.  Please take a moment and let us know what you think by filling out a review in the iTunes App store.

For you Android users out there – we HEAR you.  We’re working overtime on getting an Android version of LakerMobile in your hands.  Its getting very close to perfection, please stay tuned.

For those of you just hearing about the app for the first time, you’ll find an overview of its features and a download link in a previous posting.
