Published: 12 December 2017

Finally, students at the university will get it easier to find their way around Campus in Luleå. Mahmoud Kwaither and Wilhelm Uggla have developed an app that syncs your schedule with a map of classrooms with a single press of a button.

- I got so tired of getting lost, so we developed our app. The best feature is that you can sync it with your personal schedule. With a touch of a button, you'll see where to go throughout the day , said Mahmoud Khwaiter, who studies Digital service development.

He has created the app together with his friend Wilhelm Uggla who reads System Sciences. At present, the team has more than 200 users without any kind of real marketing and their first step is so get 2000 users in a short future.

- Currently our app has spread through word of mouth, which indicates that it is of great benefit to the students, said Wilhelm Uggla.

In step one they want to make a really good app for the students at Luleå University of Technology but the two also want to expand and create the same solution for other universities like Umeå and Sundsvall.

- Young people want information immediately and universities are currently too bureaucratic to follow along. This app gives students what they want and simplifies their everyday lives and we think it has great potential, said Mahmoud Khwaiter.

The app is available for iPhones and will soon be ready for Android phones.
