MyUW Android and iOS Apps
UW Information Technology
The “all new” MyUW began as a mobile-first Web application for students, initially released in the fall of 2014, and was made available in a desktop version the next year in the fall of 2015. UW-IT continues to emphasize responsive design and support for mobile devices as MyUW evolves; every new feature is designed to work both in a mobile view, and scale to tablet and desktop views. Despite this early and consistent support for mobile use, students expect and continue to ask for native mobile apps. In addition, native Android and iOS apps for MyUW would afford functionality, such as push notifications, that could provide value for students in the future. This proposal would expand an existing team of student engineers in UW-IT AXDD in order to build native Android and iOS apps for MyUW.
