New App for the Aztec community

AzteCast, which was developed by students from the School of Journalism and Media Studies, provides a mobile platform from which students can view news and upcoming events on or near campus. In addition to providing information about upcoming sports games, plays, concerts and club meetings, the collaborative app allows students to submit information about their own events. In the future, the app may cover crime report alerts as well.
