12:36 p.m., Feb. 25, 2013--The University of Delaware has upgraded UD Mobile Web to a feature-rich application based on the open-source framework called Kurogo

“This enhanced version of UD Mobile Web provides an improved rendering engine that supports both tablets and smartphones,” Dave Costrini, manager, IT Web Development, said. “UD will no longer need to maintain multiple apps for different devices.”

'Contactless' ONEcard

The UD ID card will be replaced by the ONEcard, which incorporates a chip and features a new technology initiative called "contactless," meaning the card can be placed near a reader device rather than swiped.

Food Bank boost

University of Delaware Parking Services' monthlong food drive program, in which motorists could make donations to pay parking citations, provided over 6,000 nonperishable food items to the Food Bank of Delaware.

The University will be dropping support of its native apps in conjunction with the deployment of the enhanced UD Mobile Web. There will be no change in services offered to UD Mobile site visitors. The UD mobile app should be uninstalled and the mobile website bookmarked as a replacement.

“The new m.udel.edu will provide a feature-rich application that renders on all browser-capable devices regardless of operating system,” Costrini said. “For example, users will be able to customize what they see on their devices – they will be able to turn features on and off as well as reorder the sequence in which icons appear.”

To use the new version, simply log in to m.udel.edu.
