The Tiger ROAR, a downloadable app now available for Android smart phones, features the RIT Athletics tiger logo that “roars” when the phone is shaken or its screen is touched. With the deaf and hard-of-hearing community in mind, the screen flashes and the phone vibrates as the tiger roars.
The app was created to be used at RIT hockey games and other RIT sporting events. Available for download at roar.rit.edu, the app is expected to be offered in the Android Market and iTunes App Store in the near future. More information is available in the university news article.
