MCAST IICT – Mobile Application Design


MCAST students studying Mobile Application Design at the Institute of ICT were involved in the testing phase of the new app launched this morning at MCAST.

In its ongoing efforts to help the general public reduce waste and increase its waste separation efforts, the Ministry for Sustainable Development, the Environment and Climate Change has rolled out a new mobile application. Through the app a user can search for a particular item or product and the app will give information… on how to dispose of it correctly. It will also include a collection calendar which will allow the user to see all collection times and dates for organic, recyclable and residual waste in every locality. A detailed map that highlights the location of Bring-In sites, Civic Amenity Sites and other waste facilities and services that are available to the general public may also be accessed. All this at the touch of a button! This app will also allow users to receive notifications based on individual interests and needs.
