  1. Booking a doctor's appointment from ilancaster

    Good health is key. This is a means of adding a way to book appointments at the medical centre through the ilancaster app. The app contains alot of useful information and it's the first thought means of help in times of confusion.

          • Notification when laundry cycle has finished

            If you've just put laundry in a machine, you can often forget when you then go and do another activity. Adding a 'Notify Me' button to each individual washer and dryer on the iLancaster app will allow students to get a notification when the cycle has finished.

                • Campus Satnav

                  On your ILancaster app you could click on a map and type in where you need to go. And you get directions. Similar to a satnav or in shopping malls when they have the list of stores and you tap the touch screen and arrows direct you.

                  • Have an Environment and Sustainability Applet

                    We should have a applet on iLancaster giving students and staff information on recycling, tips on environmentally friendly lifestyle choices and also a list of local businesses with a low environmental impact. There could also be a cycling map for Lancaster and Morecambe.

                        • iLancaster App for Windows 10 Mobile

                          Why should a student not be able to have that same ease of access as their iOS and Android peers? iPhones are known for being more expensive than other smartphones and many Lumia (Windows) phones being lower tier regarding costs. What if an individual chooses a Windows mobile due to their financial standings? The lack of a University official app, sadly and unnecessarily hinders that students experience. How can we expect to cultivate an environment of ideas when a certain segment of students are unable to even obtain the bare essentials?

                            • Integrate bus timetable into app

                              Integrate the bus timetable into the app so that it doesn't need a mobile connection in order to access it. I get an error 90% of the time as there is a lack of coverage and it just refuses to load.

                                • Ashtrays in front of the houses

                                  Probably most of you have noticed that there are no ashtrays in front of the buildings or at least have seen numerous cigarette butts on the ground. I am aware that there are people in charge of cleaning the area but as a smoker I feel bad that i have to leave remains of cigarettes on the ground, polluting the environment, and, consequently, someone has to clean after me. I reckon that stubbing out cigarettes in ashtrays is an expression of social responsibility and unwillingness to pollute the surrounding area. Moreover, it would reduce the time needed to clean the…

                                      • Stopping the 'beach towel' issue in the library

                                        A simple application which allows you to subtly bring it to the attention of the library staff that someone has left their belongings to reverse themselves a spot in the library and then left. The staff can then deal with it by removing the items or some other such method.

                                          Lancaster computer department (infolab) arrange many fantastic talks which can be fully booked or not available to part-time or remote students. I personally attend a full time course but 3 out of 4 weeks I work down south and miss out. I'd like to see these recorded and available to watch online. Delayed or live is better than missing out entirely.
