New Bongo application released for compatibility

November 15, 2018

A new Bongo update was released on Thursday, November 15, 2018. The Bongo application was either recreated or updated to be compatible with the latest Android and Apple operating systems. In addition, the application has been given a visual update. Details about steps to update each operating systems are listed below. 

Android Devices

Developers were unable to update the application to restore compatibility, so a new app was created. Users should remove the previous version and install the new application that takes advantage of the standard Android interface and works on the most recent versions. To download the new app, search for "University of Iowa Bongo" in the Google Play store.

Apple Devices

The Apple version of the Bongo application was able to be updated by developers. In the App Store, click on the updates tab to update Bongo for Apple devices.

If you experience issues after installing the new application, please contact cambus-transit@uiowa.edu or (319) 335-8633. We appreciate your patience as the technology team worked to create the new application.
