Keeping Up with Sonoma State

Sonoma State University has updated its SSU Mobile iPhone app with a fresh, modern look and new features including a directory of faculty and staff, and a news feed from SSU’s NewsCenter. A useful feature shows the users on campus superimposed on a campus map, via GPS. Don’t miss the events calendar and a link to KSUN, SSU’s student-run radio station.

The current version of the app was developed by computer science student Eric Amorde from a class taught by Dr. Ali Kooshesh, professor and chair of the computer science department. Unlike most free apps, SSU Mobile does not collect user data. “Absolutely not,” says Kooshesh when asked about tracking users. “We do not know who you are and don’t try to know who you are.” With a laugh, he adds, “It’s challenging enough to just give you the basics of what you need.”
