About

MBS Now is a 2PITAU project.

MBS Now was made with the idea to both provide students the opportunity to participate in the governance of a usually private, closed institution and to make students’, parents’, and faculty members’ day slightly simpler. Before MBS Now, there was no medium from which those associated with the school could access crucial information.

The app works 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 is much more communal and dynamic; maintainers listen to your suggestions and add functionality accordingly. Select users can also update the app’s content remotely via MBS Now Admin. MBS Now is wholly run by its maintainers and relies sparingly on school resources.

MBS Now will always be maintained by individuals (generally alumni, students, & faculty/staff), ad-free, free to use, transparent, and open-source.

We hope you enjoy the app!
