iUPB

iUPB is an extensible, open-source rails3 web-application for the University of Paderborn: www.i-upb.de. Students and staff use it to get current information about restaurants, busses, weather, they manage their courses and post ads to a pinboard.

The app uses Bootstrap and is accessible by all major browsers and operating systems. We also created two apps for iOS and Android. Check them out as well!
