HighWire Press launched the HighWire Mobile Web Interface for six American Heart Association journals. The Mobile Web Interface is a publication website optimized for smartphone devices and is the first of a suite of mobile products from HighWire, which includes full text apps for iPhone and iPad, as well as an RSS-driven iPhone app and support for the Kindle reader. Users accessing sites through an iPhone or Android smartphone will be detected and automatically sent the HighWire Mobile Web interface.
The mobile web interface offers a variety of features, including quick access to current issues and archives, a simplified search page, personalization options, and authentication.
The mobile sites are currently available for iOS and Android devices. Support for other mobile devices, such as the Blackberry and other smartphones will be added in future releases of the interface.
