PocketWGU and the 500...

Sometime late yesterday (October 8th), PocketWGU received it's 500th 5-star rating.  On behalf of everyone who has contributed to the creation, testing, and ongoing existence of this app, I wanted to offer my thanks.  This started as a little side project when I was a WGU student, there was no app back then and the portal was rather tough to use on a phone.  Some 4.5 years and over 47,000 downloads later, this little project is now one of the most highly rated mobile apps for any major, online university.  (Go Night Owls!)  Not too shabby for a completely volunteer effort by students and alumni.  I've long believed that a project like this would not be possible anywhere except WGU, and I know that without the forbearance and assistance of WGU's superb Faculty and Administration, it would have died on the vine a long time ago.

Across all app stores on which PocketWGU is published, the app has received some 642 ratings and/or reviews.  Of these, 93% are positive (4 or 5 stars) and provide an overall average of 4.65 out of 5 stars.  A fairly small portion of students who download the app choose to provide a store rating (anywhere from 0.5% to 2.5%, depending on the app store), but those who do, seem to like it.  The Android version of PocketWGU tends to be rated/reviewed most often, but the 500th 5-star rating appeared on the Apple App Store (user "hs24601") for the iOS version.

My sincere thanks goes out to you all!
