The app uses a Google style search and is meant to keep parents connected to school and district information from their mobile devices.
Users simply enter the name of their son or daughters' district or school –the school can then be added to a personalized list of favorites. "Our new app benefits parents who have multiple children attending different schools within Mobile County, now they have the ability to quickly access al of their children's information within one app," said David Akridge, Executive Manager CIO for Mobile County Schools.

The difference is the interface. It's designed to view information in no more than three clicks, which is a lot quicker than having to log onto the internet for the information.
Mobile County Schools are featured in the application, but a resources section has been added to help the schools and districts that are not listed.
