A vital part of the UCF Mobile app is the UCF community which is key to creating a mobile experience that is engaging, meaningful, and essential. We are developing guidelines and a service model to give UCF partners the ability to extend the underlying mobile app platform to meet the needs of their audience. Our goal is to ensure the best mobile experience for all users. If you would like to discuss your mobile strategy or how to be involved, please contact ucfmobile@ucf.edu.
