The project creates a prototype application for mobile smart phones using the Android Operating System (OS). The application is aimed at facilitating access to information contained on The University of Northampton (UoN) web site (University of Northampton (2011)). The app will connect with the University’s existing databases and return relevant information, as well as being able to check news and events within the University. In addition, the prototype application will give us the opportunity to check student and university news, university events, student timetable and help contact the appropriate University Offices stuff by phone or email. The application also will have Google maps, application also have extra features such as setting wallpaper, app information.
