Students Develop App for ComSoc

Prof. James Won-Ki Hong and his students Yeongrak Choi and Yoonseon Han from POSTECH, developed and provided an iPhone application for ComSoc members with an Apple iOS device such as the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.


The App was developed as part of a term project for a graduate course called, “Smartphonomics: Convergence using Smart Phones and Devices” in the Division of IT Convergence Engineering, POSTECH , Korea.  


A beta version of this application was demonstrated at the ComSoc committee meetings at GlOBECOM 2010  in Miami last December. It showed how ComSoc members might soon be able to access ComSoc online content via their smartphones.  The ComSoc iPhone App is now available to our members from the Apple App Store for free. 


The team plans to provide similar native smartphone applications for Android-based mobile devices soon.

Students Develop Android App for ComSoc

Prof. James Won-Ki Hong and his students Yoonseon Han and Yeongrak Choi from Pohang University of Science and Technology ( POSTECH ), Korea developed and provided an Android application for ComSoc members and non-members with an Android-based smart device such as the Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab.

The ComSoc App  for Android devices was developed as part of a term project for a graduate course called, “Smartphonomics: Convergence using Smart Phones and Devices” in the Division of IT Convergence Engineering ( http://itce.postech.ac.kr ), POSTECH , Korea.


The App can be downloaded from the Android Market by searching for the keyword "ComSoc" for free. It should also work for other Android phones. 


This is after they developed and released the same ComSoc App for iPhone users earlier this year. You can visit the iTunes for more info on the iPhone ComSoc App.


So what's next coming out of their sleeves? Here's the clue - the team has revealed to ComSoc volunteers and staff that they planned to develop an app for  IEEE Technology News.
