How Do I Use the Mobile Pulse App?

This app is not designed to be a fully functional platform. It is an app that helps students find out what’s new and what’s next. They can use it to stay up to date and prepared by unifying course calendars, assignments, grades, and news during the busiest times.

NOTE: This example uses iOS, however the Android app has similar functionality.
