April 14, 2010 -- Emeryville, CA. AirPAC for Smartphones, the portable catalog for library users on-the-go, now supports Palm Pre and devices running Google's Android OS (such as DROID by Motorola and HTC's Eris). Building on current support for Blackberry Storm and iPhone, AirPAC continues to evolve with the expanding set of smartphones on the market. As mobile technology continues to transform the way library users access resources, AirPAC provides a powerful and efficient approach to library catalog content and requesting options.

"With new smartphone devices introduced almost weekly, it's not practical for libraries to optimize their interface for every single device," says Alan Dyck, Product Manager. "I'm glad we can offer a solution that detects smartphones, redirects to the mobile version, and looks great! We really cater to the mobile user by creating a seamless transition from a search in the mobile browser to the optimized catalog, without switching them to a different app."

AirPAC is the solution for quick access to the library catalog, individual account information, and more. AirPAC offers full search capabilities with RightResult relevance-ranking technology and the ability to request or renew materials. AirPAC for Smartphones also displays book covers and material type icons.

The new AirPAC for Smartphones is a free enhancement for Innovative libraries that currently have the classic AirPAC product for mobile phones. For screen images or URLs of AirPAC for Smartphones catalogs please write Innovative.
