EBSCO Publishing Releases New iPhone App

Accessing EBSCOhost content just got easier with the release of a new iPhone application from EBSCO Publishing. Building on the success of EBSCOhost Mobile, a website application, the new iPhone application (app) enables Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad users to access quality content via EBSCOhost.

The new iPhone app, available free from the iTunes App Store, offers easy authentication for users via a library’s EBSCOhost profile. New features include the ability to view content in visual landscape mode and the option to save articles and PDF full-text content on the device for offline viewing. The app also includes existing EBSCOhost features bringing the most popular and useful functionality to researchers. These features include limiting to full text, date ranges, peer-reviewed content, or by publication.

Clicking into a result replicates the EBSCOhost user experience providing researchers with abstracts and links to full text, as well as key citation information such as source, authors, and subject terms that are all easily clickable to launch new searches. Users also have the ability to save and email articles as well as store PDFs for offline viewing. The result list is scrollable, can be refined by subject and publication facets, and can be sorted by relevancy or date. Available data in the result list includes citations and access to full-text articles.

The interface has been simplified for increased speed and user convenience. EBSCO currently offers a mobile app for DynaMed, a point-of-care resource. Future apps will include an EBSCOhost app for Android devices, iPhone apps for Business Book Summaries and Nursing Reference Center, and eBook reader apps.
