University of Southampton launches new iPhone app
The University of Southampton has launched a new iPhone app to showcase its 2011 Undergraduate prospectus, as well as giving further details into life at the University.
The key features of the app include full and searchable course listings with detailed course information, entry requirements, testimonials and information on how to apply. Direct contact details to the relevant University departments are also listed, giving applicants the option to email or telephone departments to find out more, streamlining the enquiries process. There are maps and PDF layouts of each campus, with the ability to search for directions too.
There are also leading research stories linked to the University’s main website and a series of downloadable videos about life at Southampton.
Sophie Dear, Digital Media Relations Manager at the University of Southampton, says: “There are plenty of university apps out there, but many are simply links to the main university website and rely heavily on connectivity, which lets down the overall user experience. This new app gives users the freedom to explore the University of Southampton consistently whenever and wherever they want.”
