If you have an iPhone or iPod Touch (you may even be reading this on such a device), Click on this button to download the new, official, student-driven “OU2GO” application for iPhone OS 3.0 and later. It’s free!
The free application features:
Campus Map: pan and zoom across the map with the interactive interface, search for buildings, mark favorites, and access information about department locations and phone numbers.
Weather: view current campus conditions, a 7-day and hourly forecast, and current radar.
News Feed: select from a number of OU news sources to access information about campus, sports, and OU departments. [This includes School of Music news!]
Media: OU YouTube channel and streaming audio from KGOU.
Tradition: play OU fight songs, look up information about the university, and access OU facts.
Both iPhone and iPod Touch include “location” features that find where you are on the planet (original iPhone and all iPod Touch models do this by triangulating the location of known wireless access points or cell phone towers; iPhone 3G and later use a built-in GPS receiver). I tried the application’s “Find me” feature in the Newman Band Hall last week, and it immediately highlighted Catlett Music Center as my location. Impressive!
Also, as you can see from the picture above, the application includes spirit songs from The Pride of Oklahoma, with a background that’s the current Flute/Piccolo part to Oklahoma! Count along with the multi-bar rests!
