This past week at the Hoya Innovation Summit, Georgetown launched its very own mobile web app. Go to m.georgetown.edu on any wireless mobile device, and Georgetown news and info is available right at your fingertips.
Just like any mobile app, Georgetown’s mobile web has an array of awesome and useful features. These range from a directory of students, staff, and faculty, a map to help you get around campus (perfect for visitors and incoming Freshmen), an events calendar, news, dining menus, GUTS bus info and much more. Finally, all the information you might ever need to know about Georgetown is available on one site.
While all the features are helpful, a few make the site really worthwhile. The directory lists all Georgetown emergency numbers, and you have the option to search any professor’s email address, making contacting them much easier. The dining app includes hours and menus of more than just Leo’s—you now have access to Corp services, Epicurean and dining options in Leavey (no more walking to Cosi only to find it dark and deserted at 7 p.m.
While right now the project is limited to the mobile website, apps for the iPhone and Android are in the works, which will make all this information even easier to access.
