Chicago based Game Salutes releases Class Registration Buddy for Android devices. This app aids students in registering for classes by alerting them of changes in class availability. Students ordinarily rely on their friends or chance to discover when an unavailable class that they want is now available for them to register. Registration is often a frustrating experience at large universities for underclassmen. All the best class times are usually taken by the time underclassmen are allowed to register for them. What some students don’t know is that people add and drop courses all the time during registration season. If one does not act quickly, though, the class opening will be taken by someone else more observant and persistent. Class Registration Buddy is designed to be students’ best friend when it comes to registration. It takes the hassle and frustration out of the experience by monitoring course changes for them. The app offers a convenient interface to navigate down to the courses and sections and deliver status bar notifications when the course changes status.
The app works by allowing the user to choose which courses and sections to be notified of status changes. With these saved selections, the app periodically checks for updates to these selections and if a section changes from open to closed or vice versa, the user is notified of the change via a status notification message. Clicking the notification message takes the user to the course results screen and highlights the sections that changed.
When users first launch the app they are presented with the summary screen that shows the current availability of their selections grouped by courses. Color cues allow users to quickly identify the information. A green course has open sections, and a yellow course only has closed sections. Users can also clear all their notifications via a menu option or remove individual selections by long-clicking on an item. Tapping the screen or clicking the menu button on the device and choosing “Browse” takes users to the course selection screen. If users have previously chosen a school and term these selections are preserved each time they browse. If a school or term change is needed, the “Options” screen can be accessed via the “Menu” button on the home screen. On the Course select screen users choose the program (e.g. Accounting, Mathematics, Physics) and the course within that program they wish to monitor. Once chosen, users are taken to the section results page that displays the sections with their availability and meeting time information. Long-clicking on the main area of the screen or clicking menu bar and “Add/Remove” allows users to check which sections they wish to monitor. An option to select all is also given.
Since the app consumes data in the background when courses are monitored, the total data usage is displayed on the home screen for concerned users. Long-clicking on the usage number will give an option to reset it.
