Emerson released a new app called Emerson Mobile for both iOS and Android devices on April 3.

Andrew Tiedemann, vice president for communications and marketing, described it in a campuswide email as a “beta” version, meaning it is not complete and some features are still undergoing testing.

The app allows users to see Emerson website highlights, search the directory, check availability of computer labs and laundry machines, reserve event space, and get push notifications for school closings and emergencies. Students can also log in to see their class schedules.

This version of the app is for current students, according to Tiedemann. The college will be looking for input on improving the app before a new update in the fall that will include a version for faculty and staff, according to Tiedemann.
