Just launched: the University of Glamorgan App

The University of Glamorgan has been developing an app for mobile devices and tablets. The first version can now be found in Apple’s App Store, for iPhones and iPads. An Android edition of the App will follow later this year.

Developed by LCSS together with the Glamlife Team, the “University of Glamorgan – Glamlife” App includes easy access to

  • Useful University contacts
  • Glamlife News (for students)
  • IT Labs information and PC booking
  • Links to the most popular library services
  • Maps
  • A student jobs feed from the Careers and Employability Service
  • Health care information and first aid instructions
  • Links to the University’s websites

The app also includes a QR code scanner and a travel planning tool (for public transport around our campuses).

If you do have an iPhone or iPad, give it a try and let us know what you think of this first edition of the app: email glamlife@glam.ac.uk with your comments.

Update added (16/01/13) – We’re aware of an issue affecting users of iOS 5, which prevents the app from working. Developers have found the source of the bug and are working on fixing and updating the app shortly.

  2. Aaron says:

    Nice idea but will there be a windows phone version?

  3. Robert says:

    An Android version is being developed, but there are no plans to address other platforms (Windows, Blackberry or others) at this point. This may change in future if the popularity of the different platforms changes significantly, but for the time being, Android and iOS appear to be the two most widely used platforms by users. Unfortunately, with limited resources, the University cannot develop for every version of every platform, so the choices are guided by trying to maximise the number of users that can be catered for with the development resources available.

    it makes it easier to access find it,

    would be good if we could access our personal page
    ie: quick link to our blackboard rather than going through the website.

    and having a tab for our timetable and emails?

  7. Kate says:

    Great to see the app release and all working well so far (iPhone 4s)
    Any plans for Glamorgan to be added to the blackboard app? – would make life much easier for those quick timetable checks or announcements etc.
    Thanks

    Having Blackboard functionality would be really top class.

  9. Jenny says:

    AS others have mentioned its a good app however being able to access Blackboard and emails quicker would be great.

  10. Keiron says:

    Access to your email through the app would be useful. Android please.
