UW-Madison now has its own iPhone app

MADISON (AP) -- The University of Wisconsin-Madison now has its own iPhone app.

It contains eight tools for students and staff, like calendars of events, directions around campus by foot, car or bus and information about faculty and staff.

The school says as of last spring, 45 percent of students and 36 percent of faculty and staff reported using a "handheld web device."

Called Mobile UW, it can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store.

Right now the app functions on the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad but an Android version is expected in early 2011.
