My SP was developed around 2013 for Windows Phones users to access student information. It provides a quick peek of the next two lessons right on the main page, with access to the full student timetable and other tools, including SP Cam and the campus map.

At the time, an official Android and an iPhone app was available, along with a student web portal which was not mobile-friendly.

Development

My SP was developed as a native Windows Phone app and written in C#.

As a public API was not available, Fiddler was used to inspect the network traffic of the official SP Mobile Android app and to figure out the endpoints for each feature.

Design and User Experience

My SP is designed for convenience and follows Windows Phone design principles.

The app loads into the main page with a Panorama, showing the next two lessons above-the-fold. A tap or swipe provides access to additional features, such as the full weekly timetable, and other tools such as SP Cam (which shows camera images of common gathering spots to show crowd levels) and the campus map.
