The Android version of the UMBC app is now available on the Google Play Store. The app requires Android version 4.1 and up. There is no login required, as you can access all the features as a guest. If you do have an account, log in once to the UMBC app and from that point forward use a 4-digit pin to quickly log in later.
The design is slightly different in the Android version, Home, Search, Places, and Events are moved to the top but users should expect the same features found in the iOS version launched last month. If logged in, the UMBC app will feature content and resources tailored to you.
In the Home tab, users can browse both the myUMBC and UMBC mobile friendly site and quickly check for updates. Search has a built in QR code scanner and shows what you have used recently, what others are looking for and myUMBC favorites.
Places will display office hours, maps, and upcoming events while Events will show you what is happening now and upcoming events on campus. Just like the iOS version, the app will be updated with more features in the future making it more robust.
