Creating an iPhone app for Brunel University

Mobile apps have come out of nowhere in the last five years, and there are a lot of universities that are now producing their own in order to get information across to students. However, it is surprisingly difficult to find university apps that have the balance right between a functional, attractive UI and a feature set that is useful to people. myBrunel is coded natively in Objective-C, specifically for current Brunel students who are iPhone users. It offers on-campus and local navigation, as well as quick access to information, contacts and online services. myBrunel was launched on the App Store in September 2013.
