On a normal day in a Ghanaian University campus, a lot happens. And it’s a must for students to know what’s happening else you’ll be left behind. You get to know what’s happening by visiting various notices boards to read about events, schedules and other activities. It’s an everyday thing.
But new thing happen in the university almost every minute. You may have left a notice board a few minutes a go only for new activities and events to be posted. You’ll see that no matter how good you’re at visiting notices, you always will not have the latest information. Unless you want to spend all of your days going about visiting notice boards, which is not the reason why you’re in school.
David Mumuni, a student of Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology wants to change that by developing the Flippy Campus mobile app.
The Flippy Campus app serves the purpose of notice boards in the universities. It brings the notice boards in your palms so you don’t have to go about here and there reading notices again.
It brings you notices from different departments in Ghanaian universities without having to go there in person. You also get to hear the latest gossip on campus, which is the interest of many students.
The apps allows students to join specific notice boards on campus in order to get a minute-by-minute update of information posted on these boards; time tables, results, event’s, interim assessments, reminders and exam info all through the app. You get all these services at no charge. All you need is an Internet connection and the app running on your device and all the info you need will start flowing.
David said his motivation to build the app was as a result of bitter experience he had few years ago ; he missed an important quiz because he had forgotten the date and time. And he hopes no other student go through similar circumstance.
Flippy Campus app is currently available for Android and iPhone users. Android users can download from the play store. iPhone users, from iTunes. Don’t be left out! Everyone is going high-tech.
