Xavier launches new Mobile App

By: Jenny Mendoza

Xavier University is making all aspects of campus life easier with the newly created Xavier Mobile App, now available for download.

This new app answers any and all questions a Xavier student may have.

The app has options to access admissions, on-campus dining hours, a student and faculty directory, emergency help, events, an image gallery, a library catalog, a map of campus that locates your classes, the Xavier course catalog, personal courses, news, sports and videos.

“The new Xavier App is a great improvement. With all of its integrated features—such as the Library tool or the Dining tool—the app is a great resource for all XU students,” SGA President Drew Dziedzic said. “I have been surprised by the number of students who bring up how they use the app in daily conversation.”

The old app should be deleted from your device before installing the new version. The new mobile app is available on a broad range of mobile devices including iPhone, Android and BlackBerry.

Tablet support for Android and iPad will be coming soon along with functionality for Windows 8 tablets and PCs.

The new app also has integration to Banner and Blackboard (with Canvas integration coming Spring 2014).

Students now have mobile access to currently enrolled courses, class rosters, mid-term and final grades from Banner and assignments, discussions and grade center grades from Blackboard.
