MUK Thru is a new app targeting students of Makerere University. Its an app whose aim is to bring information closer to students in way students find cool, fast and convenient.

MukThru showcases feed from all the Makerere University website including its micro-sites into one unified feed, categorized into News, Academics, Sports, Gossip.

There is a unified link area to help any student when it comess to finding online resources in the university such the Muele (Makerere’s E-learning platform), academic registrar’s websites, student results which reduces the hustle of cramming the multiple disorganised url structures.

The Navigate Feature of the app has maps and directions to several buildings within the University along with other buildings such as hostels which are categorised according to their respective locations.

MukThru also has an Event feature with links and information on Events that are organized by the university.

Another feature i loved was the performance tracer which enables students track their CGPA as they advance through several semesters. You are also able to set a password for this particular section since you don’t want every one accessing your results.

The app sends push alerts and refreshes the news feed after particular period of time which you set in the settings menu.

We found the app design nice and simple, and you will not find a lot of clutter and everything is where it should be, however the choice of light sky blue for the menus didn’t please me.

MukThru was designed by a group of software engineering students at Makerere University in their 2nd year. These include Atwine Allan, Ainebyoona Evans, Kayaga Andrew under the name Infrasys Uganda.

We must commend these guys for simplifiying the lives of many especially freshers.
Feel free to download the app from the Google Play Store
