HBCU Homecoming launches on the Appstore for the iPhone as the first and only mobile APP created to showcase HBCU homecoming events
Nationwide (BlackNews.com) — Diverse Mobile the minority owned mobile application development company behind the first African American Storybook App on the AppStore, A Song for Miles, brings you another revolutionary App for the iPhone focusing on HBCU Homecomings. HBCU Homecoming is the first App created solely to promote Black College Homecoming activities and events. The application features schedules of events for all Black Colleges with Fall football Homecoming activities.
Having all attended HBCUs, the founders of Diverse Mobile recognize the amount of excitement and pageantry around Black College Homecomings and are attempting to fill a void in the mobile space with this one of a kind App. According to the UNCF Patterson Research Institute, though representing just 4 percent of the nation’s public and private not-for profit four-year institutions, HBCUs enroll 21 percent of African-American college students, and grant 22 percent of all bachelor’s degrees awarded to African-Americans. HBCUs also account for more than a fifth of all African- American undergraduates.
What makes the App so revolutionary and a must have for anyone with an interest in HBCUs is not only the schedule of events but all of the other innovative and collaborative features sure to please Alumni, current Students, and all interested Parties.
The feature set is listed below:
