Information Technology Services (ITS) at Florida State University has launched the latest version of the myFSU Mobile app for Apple mobile devices. The updated version has four new features that will enhance existing features such as Blackboard Learn, Athletics, News and Dining Information.
The new features are:
•Springboard Personalization, which moves myFSU Mobile away from being a one-size-fits-all app by allowing users to customize the organization of their modules. Users can press and hold a module until it jiggles, then drag and drop within the existing screen or move it to a new one.
•Augmented Reality, which allows users to explore the Florida State campus in a whole new way. Augmented Reality (AR) for Maps and Places uses the camera, GPS and compass of Apple mobile devices to identify the buildings on campus in a 3-D, interactive view. With a tap, users can view walking time from a current location and other details about the places around the campus.
•An updated Event Calendar that offers greater usability with the universitywide event calendar system as more university departments implement online calendars to share events across campus.
•An Office of Admissions presence, which allows prospective students to learn more about becoming a Seminole, straight from their mobile devices.
The myFSU Mobile project is a collaboration of multiple campus departments led by Information Technology Services.
