The UW on Nov. 4 became the first university in the nation to launch a mobile app for BlackBerry devices. It’s modeled after our iPhone app, which launched earlier. Both offer course catalogs, campus directories, maps, news, photos and sports scores in a format optimized for mobile devices.
Connect to UW resources on the go with m.UW for iPhone or iPod touch. The application is available for download via the iPhone App Store.
