What’s coming in the new PennMobile?

A new school year is about to get started, and the Penn Labs team has a brand new release of PennMobile to go along with it. After a huge amount of developer effort over the summer, this is what’s coming in the Fall of 2015.

Transit Routing

For the longest time, Penn students have had access to the PennBus, which has two primary routes, East and West. At the same time, knowing which bus takes you where is difficult to find out, and so many Penn students opt to take a cab or SEPTA into center city when it isn’t needed. With the PennMobile app coming in the fall, you’ll be able to navigate to any destination using the PennBus system – just like Google Maps navigation!

Campus Map

The first day of classes is always challenging, especially for new students (hey class of 2019!) or in a new building (engineering, looking at you). Now PennMobile has an integrated campus map with every building on campus, and a course search with an integrated map to find your classes. It’s as easy as a search away. Bonus: tap the navigate button in the bottom right, and you’ll get walking directions to your class.
