~ New App for Android Devices Allows Library Users to Search Premium EBSCOhost® Content ~

IPSWICH, Mass. — November 29, 2011 — EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) has released an EBSCOhost® Android app ensuring that Android device users can quickly and easily take full advantage of their premium EBSCOhost database content from wherever they happen to be. The Android app is the latest option in EBSCO’s mobile access technology –providing flexible access options for all popular mobile devices and the same user-friendly and easy-to-use search experience that is available when logging in to EBSCO's library resources online.

Available as a free download from the Android Market, the EBSCOhost Android app allows users to search premium EBSCOhost database content while utilizing existing EBSCOhost features — bringing the most popular and useful functionality to researchers. These features include choosing which database to search, limiting to full text, date ranges, peer-reviewed content or by publication, and searching a library’s catalog.

Additional 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 can be used on devices running Android v. 2.1 or later.

EBSCO’s mobile technology began with the success of EBSCOhost® Mobile, a website application designed for Internet capable mobile devices including smartphones. In Spring 2011 EBSCO released an iPhone app providing a quick and convenient way for Apple iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad users to access quality content via EBSCOhost.

EBSCO also offers mobile apps for DynaMed™ a point-of-care resource, and iPhone apps for Business Book Summaries™, a resource that provides comprehensive summaries of the best business books, and Nursing Reference Center™.
