iUsask named top app in Canada for navigating universities

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - September 10, 2013 SASKATOON - The University of Saskatchewan's mobile app iUsask has been given top honours by Connected Rogers, a Canadian technology and lifestyle guide.

Named as the number one app for navigating Canadian universities, the digital magazine said, "If schools were ranked based on the quality of their mobile apps, the University of Saskatchewan would hold top slot. It's clear that iUsask is still leading the pack when it comes to cutting-edge mobile technology."
The iUsask app was ranked number one over apps from the University of Toronto, Carleton University, UBC and Athabasca University.
"Mobile devices provide capabilities and opportunities that can be transformative in how we deliver services and information to students and others at universities," said Monisha Shukla, director of applications at the U of S. "Mobile development has been a priority area for Information and Communications Technology
and we expect that to continue."
iUsask offers an easy-to-use interface that enables students to get more information, quickly and easily and in real-time. The app that is available on iOS devices and Android is interactive and features library hours, class locations, school-related news and options such as viewing grades confidentially, checking available computers in a lab and viewing live webcam feeds of the campus.
