University of California at San Diego and Texas A&M create campus iPhone apps

The University of California at San Diego and Texas A&M have joined Duke and Stanford and introduced their own campus iPhone apps. The app for UC San Diego offers an interactive campus map; a directory of students, faculty, and staff with the option to e-mail, call, and text; campus sports news and schedules; videos from the university’s YouTube channel; and the ability to browse and search classes and view the locations on the map. The university is also creating an application for the Blackberry. The Texas A&M app offers similar capabilities and the university is already working on future applications that will be accessible via other mobile devices. One of the applications in development will let users locate former students still connected to the university’s “Aggie Network.”
