Add a "Group" icon for all phone apps.
1. add a discussion box so members can chat quickly and easily about assigned homework, their shared reading plans, lives, etc. (Essentially text messaging or instant messaging).
2. add a message board (or like a notifications area) where group members can post important articles,docs,and links to podcast for members to look over. (Different from discussion box because this has a title, then a subject with various links, documents, etc. and can only be added by admins of the group).
3. add a "group" icon inside all the phone apps so that I can use all the above group features on my phone instead of having to use my computer to quickly communicate with group members.
