The Michigan App provides in-app messages and reminders related to academic life, personalized class schedule information, search based on places (campus buildings) and people (faculty, staff and students), location-based content including bus stops, parking locations and dining halls, and featured university events.
Added a date picker to make picking dates easier (the calendar kind).
Duplicate events will no longer show up in More Featured Events. Fixed enforcement hours and coordinates for a parking lot. Fixed Videos in the News section not opening sometimes when tapped on to opening every time when tapped on.
Also, performance enhancements including smarter caching of certain features throughout the app.
Ratings and Reviews
This app is awesome
Still needs work.
I do like that the maps functionality has returned bit it's rather laggy in its current form and tapping on the stops doesn't show arrival times anymore but rather requires a separate screen that removes map view and takes much longer to load than the original maps application. I will probably be switching back to the version with the last maps solution for the faster load times and quicker access to route and stop info but this is a good first step.
Decent services, very poor usability
A lot of usability/interface issues hat seem pretty avoidable.
ex: CTools here has no options for saving resources to mobile devices, which makes it a (much) less useful feature.
ex: App is set up poorly for actual navigation. Even things like Back/Home button setup makes for slow browsing, loading/reloading. Having to reload long lists of info every time a page is visited/revisited (as an example, looking at courses; reloads term, college, dept, course, and section every time a page is loaded. Makes any kind of browsing/lookup pretty time consuming. Things like this throughout the entire app)
These are features I use most often, but it's pretty clear there are issues like this throughout the app. Seems very fixable. If UM is providing the app, they should work out these types if kinks and inconveniences.
