App categories

There are three categories of mobile apps as detailed below.

Core apps

These are apps that are part of a managed suite of apps.  They provide delivery of access to core systems or functions.  They are fully University of Birmingham branded.

This type of app needs to go through the Mobile App Steering Group for sign off.  If you are developing an app that falls into this category please fill out the Mobile app approval form (PDF).  

UoB Apps

These are apps which have a coherent use of the University basic image but may not need the official word marque.  

This type of app needs to go through the Mobile App Steering Group for sign off.  If you are developing an app that falls into this category please fill out the Mobile app approval form (PDF).   

Innovations/Special Interest Apps

These apps are fulfilling specific or temporary needs.  They do not need to be branded and do not need to go through the Mobile App Steering Group, however if you are developing an app that falls within this category you should still let the group know so that we can add it to the mobile app register.
