The goal of this beta project is to create the most useful and enjoyable mobile experience possible. Specifically, this project focuses on browsing Tables of Contents.
Our understanding is that most people who browse research on a mobile device are trying to use their on-the-go time to keep up with the latest research, but in most cases reading the full text of articles on a mobile device is not practical or possible. So we have created a TOC that allows you to mark the articles you're interested in for viewing later on your desktop or laptop computer.
To do this, we are incorporating the ACS Publications website's Add to Favorites feature.
The goal of this beta project is to create the most useful and enjoyable mobile experience possible. Specifically, this project focuses on formatting an article for viewing on a mobile device.
The full Mobile TOC functionality has been verified to work with the iPhone/iPod Touch and most Blackberry models (using the free Opera Mini browser*). In addition, the Mobile TOC should also work with phones running on the Google Android platform and any mobile phone that can run the Opera Mini browser.
You can download and install Opera Mini for free by going to [http://mini.opera.com] on your phone's normal browser. If your device is supported by Opera Mini, the website will prompt you to begin the download/installation process. If you have questions about installing/using the Opera Mini browser, please see Opera's FAQ page for Opera Mini.

The goal of these beta projects is to create the most useful and enjoyable mobile experience possible. Over time, the list of mobile projects will grow as we explore how to best represent the different parts of the ACS Publications website in a mobile format.
