Let's Go for Android
In the fall of 2012, Rover worked with Let's Go to create a series of city apps for the Nook. Each app includes a main city page, blogs, videos, photos, and maps. The main city page features information about the city's neighborhoods, culture, nightlife, and more, providing a thorough and sleek guide to the city. Look for these apps in the Nook play store!
Harvard University’s Innovation Lab Website
With the support of Harvard’s new Innovation Lab (dubbed the i-lab), Rover began development its new state-of-the-art website. The site, based on the design concept of live tiles, will feature a room reservation system, event calendar, a jobs database and expert directory among other features. Look for the site to go live in early September.
Harvard University Office of Career Services for iOS and Android
For the past few months, Rover has been working closely with Harvard’s Office of Career Services to develop their first ever mobile applications. With both an Android and an iOS version, OCS hopes to reach a large percentage of Harvard students. These apps bring the rich content of OCS along with new tools such as a business card scanner, a student profile page and user generated to-do lists and reminders. Never before has the job search process been so organized! Look for these apps soon in the App Store and Android Marketplace.
SAT Vocab Flashcards for iOS
In the spring of 2011, the Rover team collaborated with HSA Tutoring to produce its first SAT iPhone app. This app allows students to flip through flashcards of over 1000 SAT vocab words. Users can listen to audio pronunciations, search for words and even create custom folders to store sets of cards. Even better, the app will keep track of your progress as you go along, maintaining folders for the words you get correct and the ones that you don’t. At $ .99, you won’t find a better vocabulary app than this.
Unofficial Guide to Life at Harvard and Unofficial Guide to Boston for iOS
As Rover’s very first apps, the Unofficial Guide apps were a huge hit. Originally released in 2009, Rover updated the apps with a whole new look and feel in 2010. Each app allows you to locate stores, restaurants and events around you as well as view reviews for each destination. Check them out in the App Store.
