Kingfisher Public Schools App
School Connect launched a free multi-lingual mobile application for Kingfisher Public Schools last Friday, the 13th. The application is available for both Apple and Android mobile devices at the Apple and Android stores, and is available in English, as well as such languages as Spanish and Arabic. The app also features “Push” messaging from both the district and individual schools and many other features including a GPS mapping and navigation, gradebook access, video, social media channels, and much more.
School Connect is a Norman, Oklahoma based mobile application platform developer and it launched its first mobile app on October 18 for Norman Public Schools.
Company President Dr. Nick Migliorino said there was so much interest in the Norman about the application being a Top 25 free education app at the Apple app store within 24 hours of its launch, the company saw there was a great need for one platform for all school systems – from anywhere in the world – to launch a mobile app. That is, mobile users now can download the free School connect app at the apple and Android stores and, from within the app, select the school district(s) mobile app they want.
Kingfisher and nearly 100 other schools have been added. Mobile users will be able to easily find their schools by selecting the country, then state, then district for which they want a mobile app.
“We are proud to go lie with this platform and to feature Kingfisher Public Schools on the platform,” Migliorino said, adding the company is in a position to add infinite amount of districts to the platform and to do so in minutes following receipt of information from a district. “Once you download the School Connect app, you choose the district you want an app for and, if they’re partnering with us, you will have their app on you phone or tablet in seconds. We’ve already gotten calls from districts form across the nation and Canada.”
