Since its inception in 1870, the MU College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources has been there to provide the best for the people of Missouri. Now it is bringing the research and stories from its world-renowned scientists and professors directly to your iPhone.
The new CAFNR smart phone app will feature stories, highlight events, showcase CAFNR’s outstate research centers and provide users a chance to easily connect to the college’s social media accounts.
When the free app is launched, the latest news is the opening view. These are from the popular CAFNR News site. Here, stories about research, academics, faculty and staff honors and things going on across the college are presented.
Find a story you like? Then share it via email, message, a Tweet or post it on Facebook by easily selecting the share button at the top right of the screen.
With a quick swipe to left, the user can access the navigation menu. Featured stories can be selected, which are the highlights from CAFNR News.
The user also can access the different CAFNR research centers. Easily access the list of centers or add specific centers through My Centers by preference, location or manually from the list.
Upon selecting a center, a profile page features contact information, a link to the center’s website and access to the latest images from the center through CAFNR’s Flickr page.
Also under the navigation menu is easy access to CAFNR’s Facebook page, Twitter profile and Flickr photostream.
If this all sounds overwhelming, select the question mark icon in the navigation menu for a quick guide on how to use the app.
The CAFNR app is slated to hit the Apple App Store later this spring. To keep up-to-date on its official launch, sign up at http://app.cafnr.org.
