Check your Pony Balance with the SMU Mobile App

Update: OIT is winding down its SMU Mobile app for iPhone and Android. On February 12, 2018, SMU Mobile will no longer appear in app stores and will stop working after February 28, 2018.
Update: As of May 17, 2017, Pony Express is no longer available.

With the recent update to the SMU Mobile App, you might have noticed a new button on your home screen, ID Card Balances. You can now check the balance on your Pony Express, Flex dollars, and all active meal plans with the SMU Mobile App. This feature was highlighted in the SMU Mobile student advisory session held last fall as one of the top five features students would like to see as part of the SMU Mobile App.
