Ratings and Reviews
News Feed goofiness in latest release
I’ve been a big fan of this app, particularly for the easy access to MIT news.
The latest release makes some big changes to the list view of articles.
I just don’t like this new style with less articles in view. It’s also annoying that during scrolling it invariably selects one of the articles (highlights it in bright blue).
I’m just trying to scroll.
Hopefully someone will take a look!

Excellent Tool For All at MIT
As a staff member always on the go, this app is a must-have. I love the Directory's responsiveness and integration with iPhone OS functionality, including email, calls, and maps, as well as the Campus Map's use of GPS. I would love to be able to get to the building plans from there as well, as I can on the map website, but that's a minor request. For me, the Tech Shuttle tracking service is also a key feature.
Lastly, while not a tool I need throughout the day, the News viewing section of the app is well-thought out and highly informative.
I highly recommend this to all students, faculty, and staff at the Institute.
A useful step above the mobile web app
A lot of the same functionality can be found in the mobile web application, but the addition of push notifications for the bus and the pre-downloaded campus map add that little something that makes this just a little more useful. Now if they'd integrate techCash and a better certificates client, I'd have no complaints. =)
