When first clicking on the My.Boisestate app, users are taken to a slideshow of beautiful photos of the Boise State campus. A simple tap of the screen then takes the viewer to a list of links relating to Boise State information and login options for My.Boisestate accounts.
Lauren Harris, a business major working for the Game Center in the Student Union Building, felt the imagery really added to the app.
“I really enjoyed the home button and how visually appealing and vivid it is,” Harris said.
My.Boisestate came out with its mobile app this fall. The mobile app was designed by the Office of Information Technology.
The app has multiple capabilities for students from accessing their My.Boisestate account to social networking and global positioning.
Harris expressed her opinions on the app.
“Overall, I think it’s pretty good. I would say the calendar section needs a bit of work,” Harris said. “But, I really enjoy the grades aspect of it.”
The app provides multiple links with which students can access information about Boise State.
Students have the ability to login to their BroncoMail account and manage their emails through their device.
Class Schedule/ Calendar:
Students can access their class schedule, previous grades and academic history. For some classes, students can review lectures within the app (the professor must use Classroom Capture for classroom recordings). There is no Blackboard access and the calendar is represented in a list format.
The app allows users to browse the course catalog to see what classes are offered and at what time.
My.Boisestate is connected to the campus UPDATE site allowing students to access campus news and event information.
All Boise State social media sites are synced with the app. Including Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
The app includes interactive maps so students can search for buildings and get real time directions to classes based on global positioning. The maps also keep track of the Campus Shuttle pickup spots.
Boise State athletic events are posted on the My.Boisestate app with the upcoming dates and times along with TV airing information.
The app is free from the iTunes app store and Google Play.
