Modo Labs Upgrades Kurogo Mobile Platform

Modo Labs' Kurogo mobile platform is getting an upgrade focused on user experience, mobile engagement and speedy mobile app deployment. Designed to put mobile implementation and development capabilities in the hands of non-developers, Kurogo 2.3 is based on a "mobile-optimized middleware" platform that "accesses and quickly mobilizes any data source, such as maps, transit information, dining menus, news, courses, and more in a unified campus app," according to the company.

New features include:

  • New publisher template, allowing non-technical users to produce pages with text hover capabilities;
  • New Web fonts;  
  • Pathfinding function for creating pre-determined paths on maps (e.g, directions for student move-in day, emergency evacuation routes, etc.);
  • Module favoriting, allowing users to "favorite" their most frequently used modules on the home page and in navigation menus;
  • Expanded admin roles, which can give users controlled access to work on only certain components or modules of the system; and
  • Enhanced deployment workflow, including the ability to release select modules while keeping others undeployed — "delayed" modules can be made available at any time into a deployed campus app, without requiring a return to the app store.
