      The app is no longer in the App Store and the latest update crashes as soon as I try to launch it. I'm hoping they fix it soon. The bus route functionality was very useful.

      This App is definitely helpful. The next step universities should take is to put the syllabus in the app as well. Let the App be the students hub for everything. The only problem with that is if students spend a lot of time on the apps, the schools may start to sell advertising space on the apps. Not the end of the world i guess as long as it doesn't compromise the app's usefulness.

      I have an Android phone. Without an Android app, I will NOT be up-to-date with my classes or with events, with bus routes, with athletics, OR with SAFETY! Are you saying that with all the millions (and probably billions) of dollars UT gets, you can't spend some money on an Android app? The safety of Android users isn't worth that much to you?

      When will they come out with an Android app? Many people have Android phones.

      Finally, I've been waiting for this app for a long time. Now it's much easier for me to use the bus and keep on schedule.

      It would be nice to see this app on multiple platforms.

      I'd love to see this app at the Android app store as well. Any idea when (or if) is it going to be available?

      The app would be so much better if they left the original classes module intact. The weekly schedule with color coded hours was very useful... now it's replaced by a useless listing of classes. Also bringing back the map with the locations of your class already loaded would be pretty nice.

      What happened to the library search functionality? Looking for stuff was easy with the old app, but I can't find the function in the new one. Is it even there?

        The university’s current mobile device traffic for Android devices is 26% compared to 70% from iPhones. While there is certainly demand for Android apps, mobile application development is expensive, so we have to be strategic about how we use our financial resources. However, we would love to develop an Android app and continue to explore all options, including the possibility of student app development support. -Drew Carls, University Communications
