With the smart phone craze spreading rapidly across the world, Penn State EcoCAR wanted to get in on the action, so the outreach team spent the Spring Semester working to create Penn State EcoCAR’s very own iPod and iPod Touch Application.
The free app can be found on iTunes and other app stores by typing in “PSU EcoCAR.” It includes feeds to all of the team’s social media streams including Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and YouTube. Users can view the team’s videos and pictures directly on the app, as well as leaving comments.
The Penn State EcoCAR team debuted the app at a campus Earth Day event, and it has been downloaded 257 times so far. The team was especially proud that State College’s Mayor Elizabeth Goreham and District Representative Rick Sollman downloaded the app when they visited the Penn State EcoCAR garage!
The app is a great way for the team to keep up with the ever-changing world of technology and spread EcoCAR goals and missions to a wider range of people. As Year Three comes to a close, the Penn State team will be sure to keep the app updated on the competition’s progress. Download Penn State EcoCAR’s App today!
