Nice resource...but it is time to make it a Universal App
Nice app. But, with millions of iPads being sold and used it's time a University of Duke's stature set a new standard for University Apps and made this app Universal or created a Made for iPad version of this app. Oh, and BTW, I'm all for fan loyalty to their University of choice, but isn't there somewhere else for folks to display their love and hate of universities besides these apps? It is totally a waste of time to have to sift through "ratings" of University Apps trying to find those that actually comment on the quality of the app. Last, what's up with "This is gay" and "That is gay" when referring to an app or a school? I'd say that such comments are moronic, but that would be a too kind. I don't think I'm the only one who feels this way and I would like to see more folks stand up and speak out against people who think it's cool to write apps that disrespect others. Where is the advantage in hurting folks? I don't get it.
Wish I could have had this as a freshman! I might not have gotten lost trying to find Bostock! Although search doesn't recognize LSRC, only Levine Science Research Center. Bring able to search with commonly used acronyms would be useful. I would also LOVE to see ACES incorporated into this app. Bring able to check my grades and more would be extremely useful as a current student. Using Safari to visit the site is a pain. Dining options would also be nice. Contact information for merchants on points, hours for options on and off campus, menus if possible for merchants on points. Like the section of the dining website, but much friendlier
Heard about the app last night at the Florida state game, it's pretty good. I just wish this had come out my freshman year instead of my senior year. Finding my location on the map was very slow when I was in certain places. The main thing it needs is a bus schedule and eventually have gps on the buses that tells exactly where they are on their route. As I write this review, I'm wondering if I will make it in time to catch the c3 at the stop in front of Sanford, pulled out my phone only to find out that I couldn't even get the schedule. Other improvements could be automatically linking facebook events to the event calendar, so that as I sit in my apartment on Friday night wondering what, if anything, is going on that night, I can whip out the iPhone and look. Other than that, it's pretty good, like I said, I wish I had this freshman year, or even at the beginning of this school year
For all of you that are writing a bad review just because you don't like duke u apparently didn't look at the app because it has some great information. I just hope that this isn't the last of it's kind (they need to do some bigger schools like ASU or UCLA or USC).
I am quite impressed with the DukeMobile suite! The app is very professionally done and feels really at home on the iPhone. Browsing courses is lightning fast and really easy, and I love that I can find where my classes are on the map (as well as myself). Events is nice - especially the free food category! This app is essential for anyone at Duke with an iPhone or iTouch. Thank you, and well done!
This app SAVED me during my pre-frosh weekend!! The map application and search feature were very handy. I also was able to stay up with the sports teams and see what games Duke was playing. The Calendar allowed me to attend events I might have not heard of otherwise. Perfect Duke application.
I actually downloaded this app for the sole purpose of telling the author what a crazy good idea this is. If other colleges would had this type of thing they could make boatloads of money. Like I said, I am not really a Duke fan and I am not a student there, but this is such a genius idea. Great work.
UI is showing its age though it's still definitely functional. New icon seems like a step back in terms of icon design (it's just the stylized Duke name, and not in a good looking way). In addition if you push out an update this far past the iPhone 5 announcement it'd be nice to see 4-inch screen support.
Now if they could just get an app for Duke Med, that would be great. I really feel sorry for the UNC fans, thinking this was a blog on ACC sports. Maybe if they dumb down the technology, UNC could get an app like this. Need to use lots of pics and s-p-e-a-k r-e-a-l s-l-o-w-www....
Good app. But would like to see blackboard access, aces access, merchants on points numbers and menus, better calendar or maybe just a separate academic calendar, bus schedule, more basketball stuff, etc.
Watched the Duke game on tv yet this app never showed the score at all and it never showed the other teams logo. I find it sad that this app only has one team to keep track of and it couldn't even manage that. VERY VERY SAD!!!
Very nice and convenient app. But everyone knows that an app for UVA (University of Virginia) would be so much better! UVA is only the #2 Best Public University in the country!! Come on, help us out here.
