Easy to loacte resources; clear titles and text to make navigation very simple, fast, and efficient.
Can reach most, commonly used resources in one to four clicks giving a much easier access than searching throught the internet for resources.
Since the app is made of many links, the application does not take up a lot of room on devices and installs and runs very fast.
The order is changed for the users so most useful or common resources appear higher than the other resources.
The application is constantly updated to fit the user needs and keep up with the new resources.
Getting to the most important resources could not be easier; with only a few clicks, students can access what they want.
Makes the student's lives easier by bringing things together rather than making the students go find all resources.
As a student, I saw the need for something like this app and was disappointed when I didn't see anyone taking the step forward to create it. After a lot of contemplation, I decided to take up the project on my own and see how far I could get. Before I knew it, I had a prototype and a final version in my hand.Read More
"Accessing Angel. Scheduling courses. Checking menu options in residence halls. As any Penn Stater knows, the University has a lot of useful websites students visit on a regular basis. Vedant Tiwari of Phoenxville, Pennsylvania, and his roommate Adam DeFazio of Hatfield, Pennsylvania, both engineering majors, were discussing this issue when Tiwari decided to create a place where the links could all be housed and easily accessed -- at least for students with Apple products."
"With hundreds of new phone applications hitting the market every day, it was only a matter of time until one was published specifically for Penn State students. My Links at State is a new app for Apple products that allows you to navigate the most important and relevant pages for Penn State students like ANGEL, eLion, and eLiving."
"The idea to create the app was born during one late-night discussion with fellow classmate and engineering major, Adam DeFazio. The pair were talking about how Penn State has all of these useful websites, but no one place where they could all be accessed. The app, 'myLinks at State,' is one stop for 10 of the Penn State websites, including eLion, ANGEL and Webmail. He also programmed in a GPA calculator for users."
