  • (2014-10-13) Jake Rye: Saves me time in the morning when getting ready for my day. I check the extension, see the weather, my courses, and the buses I care about all in the same moment. Can even request a football ticket with one click. When next semester rolls around I will def be one-click buying the books I need through this extension!
  • (2014-10-08) Hannah Mahon: This app is seriously amazing. If you're a lazy college student with a terrible memory, this app will change your life. It tells you the classes you have that day, the next bus coming to your bus stop, upcoming sports games, and the weather. Love it.
