UTM mobile app released

The University of Tennes-see at Martin recently released version 1.0 of the UT Martin Mobile App for iPhone and iPod Touch.
Users can view the very latest UT Martin news, events, pictures, videos and more with this free application.
“We wanted to provide something to the UT Martin campus on the device that most of us are already carrying around in our pockets. Having quick, easy access to information at our fingertips has become the standard that everyone has come to expect. And UT Martin Mobile has that goal in mind … UT Martin information at your fingertips,” said Steve Holt, Instructional Technology Center director.
UT Martin has the first branded UT app available in the iTunes store for iPhone and iPod Touch. Users can see official campus photos, official campus videos, campus news, campus events and a campus map that enables users to locate buildings. This first generation of UT Martin Mobile has limited functionality, but version 2.0 is already being developed.
Version 2.0 will add additional tools, such as a UT Martin directory search, emergency notification information and a library search. Also being developed are capabilities to access live scores from UT Martin athletics and make payments with users’ mobile phones.
UT Martin Instructional Technology Services is also working on creating a version of the app for Android devices, which is set to be released in the summer. Android mobile phone owners can use the web browser to go to http://m.utm.edu to access the app features.
“Really, anybody who is interested in UT Martin can find something useful with the app. That includes current faculty, staff and students, as well as alumni, prospective students or community residents,” Holt said.
The version for iPhone is available at www.utm.edu/mobile.
