Here's everything you need to know about UniMate's latest app update.
A complete app re-design
The UniMate app has gotten a bit of a design update so you'll be loving it even more now. You can now see your upcoming deadlines and exams right on your Home Page as well as your most recently inputted grades. This quick-access re-design makes it easy to keep up with your most pressing deadlines so that you never have to miss them again. Simply input a due date when you add an assignment or exam on the Track Page and have it effortlessly appear on your Home Page.
Additionally, you can also switch between the British educational grading scale (1:1, 2:1, 2:1...) on your front page and the exact percentage you're averaging on your Home Page. Just tap on the bold, blue numbers to pick your preferred view style and make the app your own!
We've also just tweaked some bits and bobs such as the Settings Page and the Calculate Page progress indicator (which now shows more clearly above your average if you're seeing your Current or Desired Grades) so that the whole experience is smoother and more straight-forward.
A whole new Deadlines Tab!
This is where it gets even more exciting. We've added a whole new section to the app - the Deadlines Tab! Located right next to the Track Page, the Deadlines Tab lets you view both your recent and past deadlines in either a list or calendar view making it easier to keep track of all your deadlines in one handy section. As mentioned, these deadlines will also pop up right on your Home Page for easier access.
Change the Order of your Years and Modules
You can now change the order of your years and modules regardless of the order you originally input them. Simply tap the blue Edit button at the top right hand side of your All Years or individual year's page and drag the three black lines next to your year or module to change it's position!
Add Extra Credit Modules
You can now add extra credit modules with ease by ticking the Extra Credit box when you track a module. This way, they won't count towards your degree and mess with your averages! Super handy, we know.
View your modules according to the semesters they're in! Make sure to allocate a semester to your module when you add it in the Track section and then flick between Semester 1, Semester 2 or All on your individual year's page.
Additional Bug Fixes
Our developer and CTO Becca has been working round the clock to fix bugs big and small for the app (everyone say 'thank you Becca' right now)! So now, more than ever, everything should be running even smoother.
We hope you enjoy the latest updates; we know we will!
