NISD mobile app available for Android and Apple users

September 3, 2013

For the first time, the Northside mobile app is now available for Android users. An updated version of the app was also recently released for Apple users.

“We encourage our students, parents and staff to download the Northside Mobile app,” says Lori Jones, Assistant Superintendent for Technology Services. “We’re thrilled to have both an Apple and Android version available and it will allow you to have important District information at your fingertips while you’re on the go.”

Northside ISD first launched an iPhone and iPad app in January 2013 to provide community members a quick, easy, and mobile phone-friendly way to access information about NISD schools and services, including campus phone numbers and addresses, cafeteria menus, Parent Connection and district news and events.

More than 3,000 people have already downloaded the app which is available for free through the iTunes App Store and the Google Play store. Both versions have the same feel, but the Android version of the app uses Google Maps to display map location and turn-by-turn route directions.
