Redesign of UChicago Mobile App Merges Functionality and Refinement

The University of Chicago released a redesign of the UChicago Mobile App for iPhone iOS 7 on March 3, 2014. The redesign includes several improvements to the app’s functionality, including:

  • Access to personalized content via the University portal, my.uchicago.edu
  • Prominent positioning of the app’s most popular features (news, maps, etc.)
  • Improved maps functionality, with an overlay of bus and shuttle routes

Perhaps the largest difference users will notice in the latest version of the UChicago Mobile App is its sleek and elegant design, a product of the mobile application development team at UChicago IT Services. An intuitive user interface has been combined with UChicago imagery, as well as a diverse yet complimentary color palette, to create more visual interest. .

Completely redesigned for iOS 7

The new UChicago Mobile is elegant.  We've brought the most-often used features up front and put the rest into the menu.

Improved maps functionality

UChicago Mobile's campus map now includes a map overlay of bus and shuttle routes.  It's easier to find where you are, where you're going and how to get there.
