BECKLEY - A new mobile app for Raleigh County Schools was unveiled at Wednesday night's board meeting.
This free app will give users quick references to several topics, including news, lunch menus and a map of the schools. The app is only available on android devices at the moment, but is expected to be in the Apple Store by sometime next week.
Developers said they are excited for folks to download the app. "Once we start to see the population of the app start to go, once we see the numbers come in that people are starting to utilize it, that's when it'll really start to hit home," said Jeff Webb of Raleigh County Schools. "Not that we've just built something, but that we've built something that's useable."
The next step is to get feedback from users on how the app is helping them and how it can be improved.
