Apps

Apps refer to software designed for mobile phones/tablet devices. Apps include those available via:

  • iTunes
  • Android Market
  • Windows Marketplace
  • Mobile web (e.g. HTML5 cross-platform).

App development
Designing, developing and testing apps can be a lengthy process. Apps need to be coded and hosted in order for them to function. There are a range of external providers who assist with app development (costs apply).

App development and testing (across multiple platforms) is required prior to going live. Testing should be requested via Service.Desk@acu.edu.au.

Apps should be submitted to digital.marketing@acu.edu.au prior to going live for design and branding approval.

Regular interaction
Apps need to be updated regularly to reflect the most up-to-date information. Once an app is no longer relevant (e.g. an event has passed), it should be made unavailable to the public (until it becomes relevant again).
