This research was aimed at developing an Android application for the Student Portal of the Records Management System (RMS). The motivation of the research was the need for an easy, portable way to access the student portal by the intended users (students) who mainly use their smartphones to access information. The research was benchmarked against three major milestones and these were: Specification of the Student Portal Android Application Design, High-fidelity Prototyping of the Student Portal Android Application, and Development of the Student Portal Android Application. An agile approach to development was used. The technologies used during the research included C-Sharp (C#) Development Kit with Spring MVC as the Model View Controller (MVC) Framework, Android Standard Development Kit (SDK), Android Studio and Microsoft Visual Studio as the Integrated Development Environments (IDEs). The implementation technologies utilized were XML for Android content layer development, C# for server API development and Java for development of the behavior layer. The research has established a comprehensive design specification for the application, a prototype for the development of the RMS Student Portal Android application and an Android application for optimizing the functionality of the Records Management System (RMS) across multiple computing platforms.
