The Lovejoy app: an academic aid

Cameron Stapleton and Adrian Moger

In this day and age, there is an app for everything and the school is no different. The Lovejoy app was developed by graduate Ryan Kohl in 2011 and has since undergone drastic changes.

The app flows smoothly, with effective transitions between windows and the many new features. Personal favorite features include the ability to insert ones student ID into the app, making for a more easily accessible ID in the lunch lines and library, and the easily accessible bell schedules for all types of days.

Students will find the app of great help in their day to day schedules as its easily accessible unless of course one is connected to the school’s restrictive WiFi. Having every database for the school in one handy app is a lot easier to access than trying to do so on the school computers.

Students can even insert their schedule on to the app, keeping everything together in one easy to access toolbar. The app is extremely easy to use, and users will have the layout memorized in the first couple minutes.

All in all, the LHS app is essential for those who need to access school information a lot or forget ID’s at home. It could be improved upon in some areas such as the app not working with the school’s WiFi and the lack of a detailed school map (a map that shows classrooms and such), but otherwise, the app is almost perfect and completely easy to use.
