It's been a long time since I last "showed my work". The original versions of the PocketWGU codebase are still in an ancient SVN repo, but the app has been completely rewritten many times since then. Anyhoo, in an effort to do things "right" the next time, I have started separating the net and non-net code, and have published the latter to Github for the Android version. Feel free to look around and, better still, report/fix some bugs.

PocketWGU 2.3.6 for Android Now Available

Mostly bug fixes and library updates. Upgrading in the usual manner (automatically or otherwise) should be fine and is recommended. :-)

PocketWGU for iOS 2.3.0 Available Now

Important note: Strongly recommend that you uninstall any older version before installing the new 2.3.0 release. This will make the upgrade go smoother.

Thanks!

PSA: PocketWGU 2.1.0 on iOS

Some PocketWGU users on iOS have been experiencing crashes (starting around 4/27) retrieving their degree plans. I've submitted an updated version for iOS to Apple (yesterday) for its review, so hopefully this will be fixed as soon as they release it. You may need to uninstall version 2.1.0 before installing the new version 2.3.0. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The issue does not seem to affect PocketWGU on other platforms.

PocketWGU Over the Years...
With the close of 2015, we took a moment for a quick look back at the history of PocketWGU. The app was first released to the WGU Community in beta (for Android) in February of 2011 and made it to the "Android Market" (eventually called Google Play) in May of that year. The first iOS release hit the Apple App store in September and Kindle Fire owners saw an Amazon App store release in December. Windows Phone was the late-comer with an initial release in March, 2014.

A lot has changed over those years. Most notably, WGU enrollment has essentially tripled, and more students use smartphones and tablets than ever before. Back in the day, almost none of the course materials could be used on a mobile device, but that's now the exception (we won't name names) rather than the rule. With the 2015 release of the new "Official" WGU apps, Night Owls are now spoiled for good choices; PocketWGU and myWGU are the two most highly-rated online university apps in both the Google and Apple app stores.

We hope everyone had a great 2015 and will have an even better 2016. Happy New Year!

PocketWGU for Android v2.3.0
It's all about the speed... and the features and bug fixes, but mostly about the speed. Improvements throughout, especially in the CoS and associated tools which should all load faster now, and are cached for access when you don't have an Internet connection. Should be available on Google Play and Amazon stores within a few hours. Enjoy!
