Those who know me know I am an ardent iPhone user, always excited for new releases and updates. That being said, I must admit, I’m starting to feel a smidgen of jealousy as I watch my Android-carrying colleagues play with the new Northwestern Mobile Central app (our first client to go live on Android).
