MBS Now

August 2017 update

As of mid-August 2017, MBS Now is no longer maintained by 2PITAU; the app no longer communicates with this server, and we will not be writing future releases. Many features have been removed from the app by its new maintainers so as to remove dependence on 2PITAU, including sports, lunch blocks, calendars, forms and automatic announcements. Various aesthetic changes have also been made, reducing the clarity with which information is presented. You may choose not to update to version 6.6 if you’d like to preserve these features, however, we will eventually stop supporting the app and cannot guarantee the presented data are accurate.

The app is now maintained by MBS staff. The reason for the hasty transition is rooted in a political dispute between us and the administration. This site will remain live for the foreseeable future, and the source code will always be accessible. We may stop scheduled, automated tasks in the near future, which keep various things up-to-date. To clarify, nothing done on this server will affect the non-2PITAU version of the app (v6.6–).

You may file an issue (anonymously) on our issue tracker.

You may read our terms & privacy practices, which should be roughly the same as the text in the app, though the version in the app takes precedence.

About

MBS Now was a project that began in late 2012 and ended in August 2017.

During its five-year life, the app worked differently than most secondary-school and college applications. Rather than being controlled by a corporation that runs a myriad of apps that have all been formatted to the same template and invade users’ privacy, MBS Now was much more dynamic; maintainers listened to your suggestions and added functionality accordingly. Select users could also update the app’s content remotely via MBS Now Admin. MBS Now was wholly run by its maintainers and relied sparingly on school resources.

Our version of MBS Now will always be open-source. Please feel free to contribute. This site and our version of the app are licensed under a CC BY-NC-SA International 4.0 license unless otherwise stated. Please check our main repository for details. MBS Now’s source code and content and this site and its content are © 2013–2019, .
