The New PocketWGU for iOS

Update 5/19 part II:  Version 1.5.1 is now available on iTunes and appears to fix the issue that kept some folks from logging in.  More to come!

Update 5/19: Sadly, a couple of bugs snuck into the 1.5 release.  The first bug (Thanks to "DH" for the report!!!) causes a crash a few seconds after launch if there is no existing data and the username/password do exist but are wrong.  The app ties to fetch data without prompting for the correct credentials, and dies quickly thereafter.  Gaak!  This bug has been fixed in version 1.5.1 which is currently under review by Apple.  The second bug appears when accessing messages for certain communities.  We're working on this one now.  We're very sorry for the inconvenience but are working as fast as we can to square everything away.  Please let us know via email if you see any more things we missed!

Version 1.5 of PocketWGU for iOS just went live on iTunes.  This version is a complete rewrite of the app designed to support the new student portal and newer iOS devices.  Hopefully, you will find that it works on the 4" iPhone 5 in addition to the various flavors of iPad (including the Mini) out now.  While the main purpose of this update was to support the new portal, we did manage to squeeze in a few things that users have been asking for over the past year or so.  This version fully supports both portrait and landscape orientations on all devices and includes refresh buttons directly on the Home, Courses, and Community screens for quick access.  Tapping your mentor's email address will allow sending email from within the app, and the new "WGU Direct" tab will provide full access to WGU Webmail from within the app.  That new tab also has direct links to TaskStream (a popular request) as well as Campus Announcements, Support Contacts, the full portal and WGU Library.  We hope you like it, but if you do have a problem be sure to shoot us an email.  Thanks!
