University of Rhode Island creates new mobile app

The app features full menus, dining hall cameras, a shuttle tracker and the ability to add to Ram accounts.

KINGSTON, R.I.—The University of Rhode Island Dining Services launched its first mobile application to assist in student time management and convenience on the go.

"We wanted students to be able to manage time more effectively," said Shaun Kavanagh, senior information technologist for Dining Services. "You're not always in front of your laptop to check the menus, so this is convenient."

Kavanagh helped to develop the app along with a Memorial Union committee and a graduate student assistant. Using the website iBuildApp, he said they were able to customize the template and add various features.
