Process

For maximum accessibility, the app was built in both iOS and Android. We integrated several user-orientated features such as 360° tours of the campus, a budget calculator and live chats with lecturers.  The functionality was one of the main priorities during development stages. Likewise, making the app accessible to all students to create high engagement was also a top priority.

We focused on tailoring the workflow of the product to the users needs to create an interactive and clear interface that incorporated Huddersfield Universities branding with our own custom colour templates and styles. Our development process was led by user specifications, making every step and interaction with the app clear and engaging.
