Ratings and Reviews
Fast, and convenient when on the move and not around a computer to check schedule and emails.
This application is solid. As a student at Kean it's pretty cool to have all this stuff at my fingertips. That said, it's not like I can't just walk to the newspaper rack down the hall and read the news. The map is probably the most useful tool, but it's useless once you go here for a few months. This isn't a huge campus, it's not difficult to find your way around.
One major improvement that is necessary to make this a great application for Kean students is built in email access. To be able to read your Kean email, see a campus map, etc through one application would be huge. There are obviously a few other things that could be included as well. Again, an overall solid application that could use future improvement.
Good....but still room for improvement
I think this is a very handy app for us Kean students but it would be even better if they included an agenda book to write down all of our assignments in(especially considering that they stopped giving out free agenda books=[). It would also be awesome if this app gave you access to your Kean Wise account as well as let you set up appointments with Tutor Track. To all those reveiwers who wrote in saying they wished it came with kean email, use the default iPhone/iPod Touch Mail app instead. Since Kean uses Gmail now it is really easy to add your account to the Mail app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
