What's New in Version 3.1.0
New interactive maps, minor UI changes.
Names on Map
The app is helpful but would be even more helpful if the building's names were still on the map that way students can find their way around easier.
Good but missing the old map.
Okay I loved the app and it has helped me a lot being new but the update kind of messed it up because I can see how the new map can be helpful but you should also include the old one because that one was better to me.
Not inclusive to all
I am disappointed with the new update. For the students with visual impairments, some must use voiceover. Some features of the app, including residential dining menus, can no longer be accessed with voiceover. This is a major disappointment!
