This started as a personal project for myself, born out of my need for better maps that just Google maps. I originally designed it to help me navigate a new university that I had started at. It grew into something much bigger and became something that I use to access all of my course content as well as take notes and share diagrams with. So, I thought it was selfish to keep it all to myself thus published to the market.

So no matter what university you go to on the planet, give it a try and leave some feed back to let me know how you got along and any opinions/feedback you may have.

There are 2 versions. Please try the donate version; My Uni (Donate) if you can appreciate the large amount of hours I have spent on this so far. You can find it on the market. Or you can buy me a beer:
Donate via Paypal

I have updated the app with a find my location button and taken off the title bar for more screen real estate. It seems quite stable to me now and I would like to see if anyone can find a bug and/or break it. I would be really interested to her from you guys your thoughts about the good and bad things with the app.

New update includes customisable links to important web sites to access from inside the app. Just scan the QR in the OP to take it for a spin.

Just updated My Uni with more pages to save important study related links. As well, you can now use the app in landscape mode and access the location settings form the menu. Please scan the QR above to give it a try or search the market for My Uni. Your feedback would be appreciated.

You should have an option to set other schools than just the one. When launching app the OSM tab doesnt display, but the map and satellite tabs do.
