Introducing the IRHA mobile app!

Now available on Android and iOS (with Windows coming soon), our mobile application allows you to stay up-to-date on all the happenings at IRHA!

Aside from being able to view a ton of information on IRHA — which includes: current events and legislation, parliament and executive members information, and our meeting locations and times — you’ll also be able to view our parliament meetings live on your mobile device (and our minutes)!

What else? How about not being able to make it to parliament meetings? What about your committee meetings? Well now you have no excuse! “FaceTime” us through the app! Never miss another meeting. Ever, again.

Our application is built on the foundations of the MyState app, with technology appropriately borrowed from Microsoft’s Skype application (Apple wouldn’t source their FaceTime code to us). In addition, we had also received support from the people over at HackISU. Please check them out too!

Thanks to all who have made this mobile app possible! Please check it out and try it on your mobile device. A minor note: the megaphone icon was a placeholder for the mockup images below, our actual icon is a nice outlined rendition of a section of Friley.
