New Version of HKU Mobile App

Since the maiden launch of the HKU App in December 2012, there have been more than 10,800 downloads of it from Apple App Store and Google Play Store.   In the last several months, we have continued our effort to enhance the functionality of this mobile application for disseminating latest campus information and providing online services on mobile devices.  We are pleased to announce that the new Version 1.2 of the HKU App was released on 13 August 2013 for downloading.   The new features and modules of this version are summarized below.


 New Features:


Staff and Student Corners

Staff and Student Corners, which require HKU Portal UID and PIN to login, contain information services and modules available only to staff and students respectively.


Enable the notification function for sending important messages to all HKU App users instantly through the mobile notification channel.


 New Modules:


Staff Directory

Staff Directory provides an easy way to search the office contact information of HKU Staff.

Information Security

Information Security provides timely alerts on current information security issues, as well as the latest phishing emails reported by HKU users.
