What's New in Version 1.1
Minor bug fixes
I wanted to have a source for locating events on campus that i would like to attend. What i found was a guidebook for packaged events for students sponsored by the university, e.g., new student orientation in March and fall kickoff in August. There were no other events listed. I used the search function but nothing came up for my topic of interest. This app could be very useful if all the departments would post events so there would be one place to go for information about their activities. This app doesn't do that. 😞
The ASU logo is clearly displayed in the school colors of maroon and gold for the APP icon. This is my first experience using the ASU Events APP. However, I found it quite easy to navigate the functions. The main focus is to provide electronic copies of event guides for major events such as Family Weekend and New Student Orientation. The target audience is mainly for ASU students. But the unique thing is that family members and friends can also use it to keep up to date with the events by connecting to social media or Youtube.
The features (To-do, My schedule) are divided into an easy-to-view column on the left side of the screen, while details of the event show up on the right-hand side. The innovative characteristics of ASU Events are that users can built an interactive schedule of the various events they would like to attend. They can also take “virtual tours” on the map to locate buildings. For private events, type in the code in the “redeem code” area, or scan a picture of it to download the guidebooks.
This ASU Events APP is a wonderful resource for students. Besides the unbeatable price (free), save money spent on printing by simply reading on a digital device instead. I predict this APP will quickly catch on with students and become popular due to its practicality.
